WORLD CLASS COUNTRY WINNER 2018

Gökhan Kuşoĝlu, Turkey

Place of work: Lucca Babek

Bartender extraordinaire Gökhan knew he wanted to be a bartender at the tender age of just 14. Four years later he found himself behind a bar and hasn't left since. When he isn't creating cocktails and managing the bar at Lucca, the Turkish native is singing and cooking for his friends. This isn't Gökhan’s first dive in the World Class pool. In 2016 he was runner-up in the Turkish finals, but having gone one step better this year, he can't wait to tackle the global final.
