Bannie Kang – Mu, Taipei, Taiwan

Korean-born Bannie Kang came into the spotlight in 2019 when she took the much-coveted title of Diageo World Class Bartender of the Year during her third attempt of the competition.

Kang moved to Singapore from her native Korea in 2010, and it was while working here that she was inspired to develop her bartending skills. She entered the contest in 2013 and again in 2014, when she made it through to the final four in the Singapore round.

Kang started her on-trade career as a waitress and previously worked at Anti:dote in Singapore’s Fairmont hotel. She is set to open a new bar and restaurant in Taipei, Taiwan, with her husband.
