Diageo Reserve Philippines opens world’s most renowned bartending program and competition for 21 Bartender of the Year hopefuls

Philippines, 9 February 2016 – Sago pearls, soy milk, hazelnut liqueur, and a shot of one of the world’s finest vodkas—these are the elements that compose a new take on a local street favorite, taho.

The taho cocktail, along with new interpretations of Filipino staples such as samalamig, is a new creation designed by Filipino bartenders trained under the banner of Diageo Reserve World Class, the cocktail industry’s most renowned and respected mixology competition worldwide. The creation of these new craft cocktails stands as testament to the skill, craftsmanship, and creativity of the Philippines’ new bartending industry. With such talent, the country is on the brink of making a dent in the world stage.

After a landmark performance from the Philippines in the last year, Diageo Reserve World Class is back to usher in a new era for the country and its bartending community, dubbed Manila’s Golden Age of Cocktails.

Taho-Taho by Rian Asiddao

This new golden age is set to take off after the growth that the local bartending community has experienced since the World Class program was introduced to the country in 2013. With more craft cocktail establishments surfacing all over the metro and with bartenders gaining more exposure and experience, the Philippines has been identified as a contender in the global craft cocktail community. This was made evident through the country’s first challenge win by 2015 Bartender of the Year Kenneth Bandivas in the Diageo Reserve Global Finals in Cape Town, South Africa.

Bandivas, along with past year’s local winners Yoma Rivera and AK Roxas, displayed their craftsmanship, skill, and creativity as honed by the World Class program through Manila-themed craft cocktails patterned after local street favorites such as taho and samalamig served at the launch of Diageo Reserve World Class 2016, held last February 9 under the roof of Whitespace Manila.

At the event, top personalities from Manila’s culinary, art, fashion, business, and entertainment scenes all gathered to welcome this new era for Philippine bartending, spearheaded by Diageo Reserve World Class.

A space that was transformed into a living time capsule that housed the sights, sounds, and flavors of Manila’s past and present aptly welcomed the emergence of Manila’s Golden Age of Cocktails—against the backdrop of the beloved city’s most iconic bits and pieces of history in art, film, music, architecture, and fashion.

These bartenders were formally presented that evening, namely:

  1. Aldrin Ivan Ancheta from The Curator
  2. Clayton Paul Munar from Buddha Bar
  3. Ian Osillo from The Exit
  4. Sean Carlo de Vera from Mandalay
  5. Lester Jones Egurrola Ligon from ABV

  19. Nino Jayson Cruz from City of Dreams

In the next few months, these bartenders will be competing in a series of qualifying heats and finals to determine which among these 21 representatives will be going on to compete in the Diageo Reserve World Class Bartender of the Year Finals in Miami, Florida, where the world’s best bartenders will pit their skills, impeccable techniques, and knowledge against each other in front of the cognoscenti of the global bartending industry.

“The growth that we have been seeing over the past 3 years in the craft cocktail and bartending industry has been a pleasant surprise,” shares Marie Ona, Diageo Reserve Philippines Luxury Manager. “Year on year, the Philippines seems to be bringing more to the table in approaching the competition. We have been seeing real talent within the industry, and that talent is being further honed and supported—making the Philippines a force to be reckoned with approaching the future of fine drinking experiences. We’re excited to shine the spotlight on these talented men and women to show the world what the Filipino bartender has to offer.”

Diageo Reserve also flew in Bulleit Global Ambassador Tim Etherington-Judge, who conducted special mentoring sessions during the launch event. In his welcome remarks, Judge shared that certain Filipino sensibilities have indeed primed this year’s roster of contenders for the upcoming competition. “In my time here so far, I’ve noticed a different sense of care from these Filipino bartenders. What they’ve said about Filipino hospitality being of an entirely different level is true. That service I’ve received so far contributes a great deal to each bartender’s performance. On top of creativity and precision, good service is the backbone of good bartending,” shared Etherington-Judge. “The upcoming competition will put all that to the test, and it’s entirely up to these 21 representatives how they’re going to show the rest of the world what the Philippines has showed me.”

Now on its 8th year globally, World Class continues to elevate the craft, innovation, and creativity within the cocktail industry. “World Class helps build careers in the industry and has been instrumental in changing the lives of the next generation of bartending talent.”

CLOSEUP FOREVER SUMMER PRIMER

Closeup Forever Summer PrimerDSC_1883

Closeup Forever Summer Primer with DJ Thomas Gold

Closeup promises an even more exciting festival this year as they present Closeup Forever Summer, the first-ever crowd-sourced party in the country. From the theme, to what people wanted to wear, the time and place, and the music – Closeup gives partygoers control over this summer’s freshest party.

The first question posed was a choice between and Indie or an Electronica party. The recent popularity of EDM won in the polls with people’s overwhelming outspokenness about which of their favorite DJs they would like to experience at the event. Closeup also asked people to vote between the great outdoors and the comfortable indoors, and whether they preferred a vibrant carnival theme or a fresh beach party.

Enrique Gil and Coleen Garcia

After months of highly-publicized planning with over 500,000 people on social media, Closeup finally announces the details for this year’s Closeup Forever Summer music festival.

Indeed the public has spoken – mostly through Facebook and Twitter. “After several polls and asking for everyone’s opinion on things like the theme, venue, genre, and artists, Closeup brings back Closeup Forever Summer with a beach-themed, Electronic Dance Music (EDM) party set in outdoorsy Circuit Makati,” said Closeup Brand Manager, Gem Laforteza.

Thomas Gold in the house!

With the blueprints of the freshest beach party in the city in place, only the lineup of performers has yet to be officiated. After weeks of listening in on people’s social media conversation, Closeup announced three foreign DJs and four local DJs as the acts for this year’s Closeup music festival last February 26 at Republiq.

The people’s choice to headline Closeup Forever Summer is Alesso whose sets are among the most popular at the world’s largest music festivals such as Tomorrowland, Ultra Music Festival and the Electrid Daisy Carnival (EDC). This famous Swedish DJ has collaborated with producers Sebastian Ingrosso, Calvin Harris, and One Republic resulting to unforgettable tracks like “Calling”, “Years”, “If I Lose Myself”, and “Under Control”.

Joining Alesso are DJs Helena and Deniz Koyu. Helena is one of EDM’s rising stars with her progressive, electro, and house beats. She has topped dance charts in Australia, cracked the Top Ten on Beatport, and has played the most popular stages around the globe, headlining Ultra Music Festival’s main stage last year. Big-room banger, Deniz Koyu is behind some of the most popular remixes to artists like Zedd (‘Spectrum’), Mike Snow (‘Pretender’), David Guetta (‘Just One Last Time’), Krewella (‘Live For The Night’), and Fedde Le Grand (‘So Much  Love’). His recent anthem “Ruby” has been smashing up the Beatport charts lately, amassing support from the scene’s top DJs.

Completing the lineup are local club favorites DJs Ace Ramos, Mars Miranda, Martin Pulgar, and Marc Naval.

MAKING MEGA: September’s Biggest Fashion Party

MakingMega DSC_0531 fashionAtetheLawyer

Fashion documentaries, like fashion itself, are aspirational. They will let you know what’s happening behind every detail of the pages of the magazine, the people inside it, the stories and ups and downs that is still fashionable.
I really love watching Fashion documentaries; it gives the viewer a pass to view in general what they are working for and how they are putting every effort in a full beautiful page. It’s about passion, dream and success in fashion.

In the Philippines, (adding to the many firsts of MEGA) a Fashion documentary of the issue cleverly titled #MakingMEGA – Anne Curtis in South America, a 45-minute video of the story and creation of a record-breaking magazine masterpiece directed by One Mega Group’s TV100 Head Michael Carandang. In the documentary, Anne Curtis and the editorial team traveled to the colorful South America in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and in Machu Picchu, Peru.

MakingMega DSC_0488 fashionAtetheLawyer

I remember what Sari Yap, Mega EIC, “..more than anything in Making Mega, aside from producing beautiful pictures, was getting to know “beautiful” people.” It is indeed what this industry offers, beautiful not just physically but in every aspect of being beautiful, and it has to be the drive, the passion and the heart to really show its true beauty.

The night would never be complete without honoring the girl on the cover of the biggest fashion magazine in the country.

Mega Magazine Editor-in-Chief Sari Yap made sure to give a more than worthy introduction for Anne Curtis to come up on stage and say a few words and share some of her experiences from the one-of-a-kind ‘Making MEGA’ trip.

Since its inception, GARAGE has become an integral part in shaping the taste and knowledge of Filipino men in the realm of fashion—providing a dossier on the latest trends in men’s style and grooming as well as dispensing inspiration through its avant-garde fashion editorials. Representative of these stylish Filipino men is best personified by GARAGE’s past best-dressed list which includes prominent male personalities like Piolo Pascual, Dingdong Dantes, Jake Cuenca, Sam Milby and more.

The highlight of GARAGE Anniversary Ball reunites some of these past best-dressed men as well as this year’s group of fashion savvy personalities. The year’s best-dressed list includes Kean Cipriano, Robby Mananquil, Frank Magalona, Jigs Mayuga, Bang Pineda and Nix Pernia. August issue cover star and best-dressed awardee, Enchong Dee was present to kick off the night’s festivities, which was then capped with a fashion show directed by Robbie Carmona and sponsored by clothing brand, RRJ.

The theme of the evening was PUNK ROCK and guests were seen donning their leather jackets, studded belts, shiny boots and spiked accessories. The August anniversary issue features Enchong Dee in a special fashion editorial interpreting this year’s motif. The issue is dubbed as a collector’s item because it comes with a special commemorative issue featuring the past best-dressed shot specifically for the issue. Also included are unpublished photos from the magazine’s five-year history.
