Rums of Puerto Rico was the main sponsor for the US Flair Open, the world’s most skilled flair competition for bartenders.  During the competition bartenders contestants had to flip, spin, throw, balance and catch bottles, drinks and various bar staples.  A panel of five judges scored participants on a variety of elements including difficulty, smoothness, variety, originality, overall entertainment and showmanship.

An additional $20,000 in prizes was awarded in other categories.
