SEBASTIAN CICHOWLAS - THE NETHERLANDS
Sebastian, from Amsterdam, The Netherlands, kept a cool head throughout the week challenges - from creating his own 'modern classic' to blind whisky tastings at Strathisla. This saw him sail through to the final were his playful bar, Pirouette, did not disappoint!
Sebastian's winning bar served an enthusiastic crowd throughout the night. The stunning Chivas cocktails produced included the Electro Light - simply revitalising - and the Footloose - crispy, groovy and fizzy - that proved particularly popular.
With his supportive team firmly behind him, Sebastian was overjoyed to be crowned the Chivas Master 2019.
