The event, hosted by the United States Bartenders Guild, was the culmination of preceding regional heats around the world. The challenge? To travel back through time, rediscover the classic cocktails of the past and recreate them with Chivas. The winner would become the first Chivas Master. The regional winners flew to New York for the finals. In all, 13 countries were represented. Here are our cor- respondents' reports. momofuku's Dave Arnold (left) and Chivas Regal Brand Ambassador Max Warner (right) gather around Masa Urushido of NYC's Saxon + Parole, who has been crowned the inaugural Chivas Masters Cocktail Champion.
