With over 500 entries across the globe, Hennessy has narrowed down their search for the world’s best sustainable cocktail. The world’s bestselling cognac has just announced the Global Top 40 winners in the #HennessyMyWay 2022 challenge. The cocktail challenge saw three Malaysians as among the Global Top 40 winning bartenders.

The global challenge is Hennessy’s third installment of the competition which encourages bartenders to be inspired by Hennessy to push their creativity to the limit. This year calls on bartenders across the world to create their version of a sustainable cocktail using Hennessy.

“Every year the standard of the talent pool in Malaysia seems to be raised even higher. We are incredibly lucky to have such exceptional bartenders that can bring out the versatility of Hennessy by creating unique pairings to suit every taste,” says Nausicaa Charrier, Marketing Director of Moët Hennessy Diageo  Malaysia & Singapore.

Beacons of the Malaysian bartending scene, Thanesh Joel (of Backdoor Bodega), Rolend Ten (also of Backdoor Bodega) and Chloe Tan (of Cabinet 8 by JWC) were commended for their strong understanding of ritual and role it plays in a great cocktail experience while demonstrating great ability to integrate sustainable practices in their expressive cocktails.

In demonstrating such exceptional skill the trio have earned a place in the Global Top 40, joining other bartenders from countries including Canada, Hong Kong and the United Kingdom. Other ASEAN winners included one each from Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam, putting Malaysia firmly ahead in this region.

“It’s exciting to see how our Malaysian bartenders compete on the global stage. To have not just one but three winners, the highest number of winners from a single country in South East Asia, is a testament to why we must continue to nurture the local talent to their full potential,” adds Charrier.

The Global Top 40 winners will each receive a cash prize of 1000 EURO and 1 bottle of Hennessy X.O. The cash prize is in addition to the 200 EURO received for winning the Malaysia Top 10 challenge round. The Global Top 40 winners will also move into the final challenge round to compete for a spot in the elusive Global Top 5. On this level, they will stand a chance to win another 2000 EURO each, and their choice of either a Hennessy Experience in Cognac or a VIP NBA Experience.

The winners are among Malaysia’s Top 10 whose entries were submitted for the global challenge with three cocktail creations out of the 10 being further selected as the Global Top 40. The judging was done by The Maison Hennessy in Cognac, France, by a panel including Hennessy Global Ambassador Jordan Bushell.

Many instagramble corner can be taken in this premises.

The best part is Tiffin At The Yard is going to be permanent.

There are variety of vendors in the area and I find that Olivia Deli is a must hunt stall. I find that their Squid Ink Paella is da bomb @ RM 35! one of the best paella I come across. Did spoke to them as currently they do not have a restaurant yet. This is their first pop up.

Their new restuarant currently under renovation and will be operating in Bangsar. I am looking forward for this.

tiffin at the yard (38)

Serve pippin hot as I was aiming them quite a while and all their service are made to order. Once, this portion is sold out, they will make a new next batch. So aim for the corner area which gives you a little crunch and also this is pack with flavours. With the kind of stock that they are using and it is cook to perfection!

I also tried their Chicken and Duck Paella @ RM 32. It is not too bad, not the usual you can get in KL. Worth to give it a try but still Squid Ink is the best.

Beef Jianbing @ RM35, which is fried rice wrapped with egg, and topped with sous-vide beef shoulder.

Not a bad dish, as it heads towards more on the salty end.

One of my friend is vegan so she opted for Bagellicious.

I see many instagrammer post about this so my sis bought to try it out. Lickin Chan ice cream. Not bad as they got a few interesting flavours.

Another recommended stall is this Philipno Jamaican stall. I totall miss out their stall picture as this stall sits right opposite Red Red Botak Head.

Pretty good dish, as meat is soft and generous with avocado. Pack with spice flavours and it is something unique that I come across. Worth to give it a try as it is at RM 35.

tiffin at the yard (31)

 

read some other post : Alta burger seems to be a big hit here which I think I miss out or do not see them. Will certainly aim them on my next visit.

2 stalls I think would recommend that I personally think worth to try:

  1. Olivia Deli – Squid Ink Paella
  2. Jamaican Philipno food – oppsite red red botak head stall.

This is a cool place to be in if you are not too sure where to do during this festive season. A great place to chill and catch up. Certainly will come back again!
