THE PERFECT SERVE
On the 4th of December, Iakovos Kostantas head bartender of Oz Cocktail Bar in Chios, was in New York City to represent our country in a world-wide serving of drinks contest among nine more contestants from various well-known bars in the world. The specificity of this contest was that the conditions for participation did not require the preparation of a specific recipe, but the way the professional bartenders responded to extreme customer demands. The famous stage bar - contest judges - tried in various ways to make the lives of the contestants difficult and to see who might be the most suitable for a bar host. Iakovos responded with humor and spontaneity at the pressure of the judges and managed to win in one of the most demanding competitions in the beverage industry.
The success of Iakovos was a result of daily hard work at Oz's bar, and comes as a reward to the persistence and patience of the goals set by the Oz team, as he rightly states in the interview he gave on Kyriaki Mavriano to Politis newspaper. Read more here.
In addition, this title combined with the success of Mastiha Project, enables all those in the Oz team to overcome the limitations of insularity, to advertise their services to other places, gain valuable experience and at the same time attract the interest of future visitors to our island.
