Almost 10,000 bartenders entered the Diageo-run global competition, which marked its eighth anniversary in 2016.
After a series of regional heats, 56 made it through to the Miami-based final, where bartenders took part in a series of challenges to assess technique, personality, spirits knowledge and performance under pressure.
In addition to naming the winner, judges also announced five runners up: Dries Botty from Belgium; Adrián Michalčík, Czech Republic; Jonas Andersen, Denmark; Ryu Fujii, Japan; and Nick Wu, Taiwan.
