The Resorttrust Cocktail Competition is an in-house competition that has been held since 1995 with the aim of improving the technical skills and service capabilities of hotel staff and increasing their motivation. This time, which was held for the first time in three years due to the corona wreck, it was the first time in the history of the cocktail competition that it was conducted using an online judging method.

In the final judging, “Creative power” and “Expressiveness through presentation” are emphasized, and a rigorous judging by 5 external judges including Mr. Kazuya Watanabe (Honorary Advisor of the Japan Hotel Bar Men’s Association), chairman of the judging committee. As a result of judging, the award-winning works were decided.

[General review by Judge Kazuya Watanabe (Honorary Advisor of the Japan Hotel Bar Men’s Association)]
No other company has held cocktail competitions 26 times on its own. I think it was difficult to hold the event during the corona crisis, but it is encouraging for the bartenders to be able to hold the competition. It was online, but I was able to judge happily.
