2012 UGLY Bartender of the Year logoHoshizaki are very proud to once again be this year's major national sponsor of the Leukaemia Foundation's U.G.L.Y. Bartender of the Year campaign across Australia.

In 2011 we extended our role as principal sponsor nationally, and are excited to continue our sponsorship in 2012, especially as it is now truly national, and includes the Queensland competition.

U.G.L.Y. Bartender of the Year is an invaluable campaign that allows bartenders to have fun and build more meaningful relationships with customers and colleagues while raising awareness and funds for The Leukaemia Foundation.

U.G.L.Y. Bartender of the Year now holds an even more important place for the Hoshizaki Lancer team, as this April, we farewelled our New Zealand Manager – Michael Abraham – who lost his battle with cancer.

So in 2012 – in addition to providing an ice machine to the highest fundraiser in each state – we will be presenting the Michael Abraham memorial trophy to the highest overall fundraiser.

Our friends at Hoshizaki Europe have recently created this video to promote our famous Hoshizaki ice and how it can be used to enhance the quality and appearance of cocktails, spirits and mixed drinks.

The video showcases the different types of Hoshizaki ice, including cube, flake, crescent and cubelet ice. As well as our custom ice cubes, such as the popular spherical ice balls, as used at Sydney's Ivy bar.

  • the ice is clear and hard, not cloudy
  • the ice presents very well, particularly in spirit drinks

  • the ice doesn't bridge while in the ice storage bin
  • the ice has the slowest melt rate, because it is clear and hard.
