While the top few were largely unchanged, Israel's Imperial Craft, Cyprus's Lost & Found and Puerto Rico's La Factoria are surprise first-time inclusions.

We've got everything you need to know about the London bars to be named on the list. It was a great year for our capital, which, due to the number of London bars in the top 50, was also named the best city in the world for bars. So we can all be officially smug for at least a year.
