"With my experience, knowledge and tasting of various spirits beside whisky and other brown spirits throughout my bar career. I have vast knowledge of agave spirits such as tequila, mezcal and raicilla.

I'm looking forward to tasting the diverse range of products and meeting the passionate makers of the products and other judges.

Asia is a big market for wine and spirits. How Asians perceive flavors is essential for the industry. It also shows Asia has the potential to compete with other major wine and spirit markets.
