Promoting Hospitality as a career of choice, a profession, and a vocation. World Young Mixologist is a global competition open to all young professional mixologists from any background.

The World Young Mixologist competition, elevated by NEFT Vodka, aims to acknowledge outstanding talent and excellence, not only in the kitchen and front-of-house service but also behind the bar.
