SINGAPORE (VNS) — Le Thanh Tung, a bartender from the Chill Skybar in HCM City, won the title "Best bartender in Viet Nam" during the Southeast Asia round of the Diageo Reserve World Class 2014 competition.

With this title, Tung will be the only representative from Viet Nam to participate in the competition's global finals in August in London.

The competition organised by the Diageo Group aims to find bartender talents around the world, and to contribute to the development of the tourism and service industry.

According to the group, this is the first time the contest has had a Southeast Asia round.

In this round, the competition also honoured five other outstanding bartenders representing countries in the region that will take part in the Global Finals.

Stephane Gripon, general manager for Diageo in Viet Nam, said he was very proud of Tung's performance, and that he would become a good ambassador for Viet Nam by introducing its culture and people to the world. — VNS
