<small>Atsushi Suzuki</small>CHIVAS MASTER GLOBAL CHAMPION 2017

Sober Company

<span class="quote__title--small">
“Chivas Masters gave me a great opportunity to enter a new global
family of bartenders. Of course, I needed to compete with the other competitors on an individual level,
but I also made an amazing network of new friends and learned so much
from them during the course of the competition.
Chivas Masters gave me a chance to know the true meaning of brotherhood and generosity.”</span>

Atsushi was crowned the Chivas Masters Global Champion 2017. Over a challenging five-day finale in Japan’s Tokyo, Atsushi overcame strong competition from 14 of the world’s most skilled bartenders and led the winning Chivas Masters Collective team to victory, before being declared the overall champion.

His winning team drinks ritual was “The Double Talk,” made using Chivas Regal 12 and inspired by the way in which great drinks can bring people together and
cross language barriers. He had the chance to collaborate with his Mexican and Hong Kong teammates, and was mentored by hospitality industry pioneer and team sensei Iain Griffiths, co-founder of Mr Lyan Ltd.

Since he won the competition, Atsushi has had many opportunities to meet new friends and industry luminaires, as well as to travel to other countries to share his drinks with fellow bartenders and cocktail lovers.

“Since I won the competition, I’ve had a lot of opportunities to meet new friends and go to other cities and countries to share my drinks. From Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans to launching Chivas Regal Mizunara in China, all the experiences have been amazing and enriched me as a bartender and as a person. I am continuing to do bartending guest shifts around Asia, always supported by Craig, China’s Chivas Brand Ambassador. And I am looking forward to attending more international events where I would have the opportunity to promote my techniques and skills, my drinks and the Chivas cocktail culture.”
