The winner takes it all in the domestic final!

Last night the lights shined on two Capitals, one was inside the Moulin Rouge, the “Capital of Entertainment”, the other were the bright lights of Xmas decorations shinning throughout the Avenues, Boulevards and the Streets of Budapest, the “Capital of Hungary.”

Upon the original plans the Moulin Rouge went through a reconstruction and reopened in the year 2000. Since then it is a venue, a complex of Budapest’s special entertainment.

So this evening the Moulin Rouge opened its doors by giving the ground over to elect Hungary’s best Finlandia based vodka mixer. Throughout the evening we have witnessed an exciting competition of Hungary’s best top bartenders.

Now was the time to have the previous competitions winners, the 12 bartenders  to take part in the final competition here in Hungary before selecting the winner  to participate in Helsinki at the XIVth  International Finlandia World Cup of 2012. All the bartenders wished to show their best,  who’s the best in this extremely close race. They all showed their skills in several categories: long drinks, followed by asperities. Each round had a fixed period (7 mins) of timing. Then the rating took place.

The rating was carried out by a technical jury then followed by the present tasting committee. Points had to be gathered by the skills, the art of style, the dexterity, the combination of taste and ingredients were all a  part of the competitors imagination.

This evening Mr. Máté Csatlós (Matthew Csatlós) was the grand mixer of the night. Last year he won the title of being the best bartender in Hungary. He received the ticket to take part and represent Hungary in Helsinki at the scenario in the world’s best top 20 bartenders and a chance to win the title and  holder of the World Cup 2012’s Campion. Along with the World Cup  the award prize is to be 25,000 USD.

Mr. Máté Csatlós (Matthew Csatlós) previously was a history and physical educator, but the past 6 years he stepped out of the classroom  and went to stand behind the bar, as a bartender.

The evening’s second and third prize went out to Mr. Ákos Orosz and  Mr. István Ludányi.
