WORLD CLASS COUNTRY WINNER 2018

Jerrold Khoo, Singapore

Place of work: Jigger & Pony

Showcasing his talent, Singapore’s Jerrold has risen to Group Bar Manager in just five short years. Perhaps this is down to his personal mantra that every person should leave a bar happier than when they came. Jerrold first discovered his love for beverages in the unlikeliest of places - Starbucks. It was there, two years before he would start bartending, that he also realised how much he enjoyed the energy between customer and barista. Fascinated with Japanese bartending, Jerrold joined Jigger & Pony, a bar with a strong focus on craft executed in a convivial atmosphere.
