In 2015 the Patrón Perfectionist Cocktail Competition was launched in the UK, this year in 2016 it is back, on a bigger international stage.
Bartenders take note! This is your chance to win an all expenses paid trip to the Hacienda Patrón. An amazing experience will be waiting at Patrón's beautiful distillery in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico.
Patrón Tequila is inviting bartenders from around the UK to enter the UK competition and become the next Patrón Perfectionist.
The competition challenges bartenders to create a Patrón Tequila cocktail which the judges deem to be 'worthy of a Perfectionist'.
In addition to the main prize of a trip to the Hacienda Patrón, the winning cocktail will feature as a special serve at the winner's bar.
The Mexican heritage is proudly highlighted by the brand and the Patrón team are excited to see what the competition entrants can create with their products.
Last years winner was Dean Shury from the Chiltern Firehouse who created the 'Providence' cocktail.
The closing date for the competition in the UK is 1st August 2016 with the shortlist being announced the following day. Regional heats will take place in Reading, Manchester, Edinburgh and London during August and early September.
