Patron Perfectionists final

Talking about his experience, Nick Cozens, has said: “The Patrón Perfectionists competition was a once in a lifetime experience for me. From the day we arrived in beautiful Sydney for the national final to the globals finals in Mexico where we visited some of the best bars and restaurants on the planet. Not to mention the Hacienda Patrón and how I was completely eclipsed by the 3 days spent there, the friends I made on the trip and experiences I had will last a lifetime.”

Patrón Tequila holds strong its values for craftsmanship, attention to detail and overall commitment to perfection. The Patrón Perfectionists Cocktail Competition is an invitation to bartenders to illustrate these values in their own creation. The reward? The opportunity to be crowned the national Patrón Perfectionist and compete against eighteen other national Patrón Perfectionists in the Global Finals in Mexico. The panel of distinguished judges will decide which bartender is the ultimate Global Patrón Perfectionist.

Lee Applbaum, Chief Marketing Officer, Patrón Spirits International said: We are proud to see the competition return on this scale, bringing new, up-and-coming talent to the bar with fresh ideas on what it takes to be a Patrón Perfectionist. The bartender community is a global community, brought together by a common pursuit for pure excellence in crafting drinks and delivering an experience for their guests.
