Patrón Perfectionists: Shake-up, stir and pour their cocktails one last time.
Twenty finalists prepare to go head-to-head at the Global Patrón Cocktail Competition at Hacienda Patrón on January 24th.
Dec. 2, 2018
It all started in May with 1,358 entries from twenty locations around the world. As the competition progressed, the field was narrowed to the twenty Patrón Perfectionist 2018 finalists, each of whom were crowned by crafting a cocktail worthy of the title and beat out other top bartenders and mixologists in their area. Now, it’s time for the best of the best to compete for the coveted title of 2018 Patrón Perfectionists winner. Each finalist will travel to the historic Hacienda Patrón in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico, on January 24th. Once there, they’ll recreate and re-present their winning cocktail to a panel of distinguished judges who all know a thing or two about what makes a great tequila cocktail. Unfortunately, an event of this magnitude is limited to a select few, but you can still try your hand at mixing up these perfect cocktails from around the world in the comfort of your own home.
