The winner may be the one representing Malaysia at the Heineken® Global Bartender Final in Amsterdam later this year.
29 August 2018, KUALA LUMPUR – Malaysia has a new ‘star’ bartender, as the Heineken® Star Serve 2018 winner was crowned today at Blackbox, Publika. In a tightly-contested finale, eight of Malaysia’s finest bartenders went head-to-head to bag the title of the best Heineken® bartender in Malaysia, with Edilon C. Cauilan from The Beer Factory, Raja Uda emerging victorious.
Heineken® Star Serve is a programme under HEINEKEN Malaysia’s Star Academy, aimed at training bartenders to deliver the perfect serve of Heineken® every time. This year’s winner has won an all-expense-paid trip to Amsterdam, the home of Heineken®, where he will stand a chance to represent Malaysia at the Heineken® Global Bartender Final in October.
Now in its fifth year, Heineken® Star Serve 2018 saw draught masters Jonathan Chong and Thomas Ling teaching the Heineken® 5-step Pouring Ritual to more than 600 bartenders across eight cities in Malaysia. The top bartender from each city was then invited to Kuala Lumpur for the Heineken® Star Serve National Final.
