Vancouver barstar, Grant Sceney has just a few weeks left to prepare to represent Canada at the Diageo World Class Global Final in the UK from July 28-August 1. After a close contest last week which saw Sceney triumph against bartenders from across Canada, including three Vancouverites, he emailed Eater to tell us how he was feeling:
The competition was fierce and all the bartenders brought their 'A-Game'. This has been the most amazing experience I have ever been through, the other nine guys are very talented bartenders, their passion is inspiring and I learned more from them than they know. It's an incredibly humbling experience!
Sceney is head bartender at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Lobby Lounge. One of his competition cocktails, the French Breakfast (Grand Marnier, rosemary butter bourbon, fino sherry and splash of champagne) will make its debut on The Lobby Lounge menu this week.
