After 10 years of competitions involving bartenders from different countries who were challenged to showcase the mixability of Disaronno, Disaronno’s contest The Mixing Star has changed direction.

In London, Milan and Amsterdam Disaronno has selected a few bartenders who are revolutionizing the field. The ways in which they express innovation have been collected in a set of stylish short movies specially made by Disaronno. The protagonists are available on The Mixing Star Facebook page and YouTube channel
