Philipp M Ernst, Austria
Barracuda Bartending, Berlin
“I could feel it from the bottom of my heart that it was my sole wish to become a bartender!” says Philipp with feeling. “From this very moment onwards I absorbed everything about bartending. I read many books, learned from my role models and worked hard every day to get better at this passion and work of mine.” It sounds like he’s in exactly the right profession. Ahead of competition, Philipp has checked and checked again the rules and regulations of World Class, something he believes is the secret to his success at the Austria World Class final – and will help in South Africa too.
