"The Shake It Up Competition was interesting, fun and exciting where top bartenders from all around the country competed for a chance to represent the United States on Pan-American and global competitions! The level of talent and creativity was extremely high - everyone participating was passionate about the craft, true professionals and owned an outstanding level of expertise in cocktail creating and proper technique. You could admire the presentation, flavors and mastering skills of everyone competing. As a winner of the 2016 Shake It Up Competition, I'm very honored and will do my best to represent the USA in Japan! No matter what, I will enter this competition again next year."  Egor Polonskiy, Beverage Director, Untitled 111, Chicago Il
