Anna mixes it with the best of them

SHE'S known by south city locals for making some of the best cocktails in town.

Now Anna Walsh (above) from popular Clanbrassil Street pub MVP has been recognised for her work, scooping the coveted title of World Class Irish Bartender of the Year 2015.

Following an intense year-long competition, six finalists representing some of the top cocktail bars across the country were put to the test yesterday.

They were challenged on all aspects of bartending and judged by some of the most revered names in the industry; Spike Marchant, Tom Jones and Max La Rocca.

Gizzi Erskine was also on hand to put the contestants through their paces and judge them on their creativity, their ability to balance flavours and their presentation skills.
