How to enter PATRÓN Perfectionists 2023 

Like previous years, the entry requirement tasks bartenders with creating a ‘Hometown Hero’ cocktail inspired by their local culture. How that’s interpreted is up to you, just as long as you use PATRÓN Silver as the star of your glass, alongside supporting acts available from a specially selected list of ingredients available from the Pantry*. Submissions will be judged on appeal, appearance, inspiration and originality. 

National finals

Each of the participating countries will narrow the submissions down to a shortlist of up to 10 bartenders to compete in the national finals (running throughout November and December). But don’t go expecting the expected, here’s where things get even more interesting as the finalists will engage across a variety of topics and exciting challenges. 

Once the scores across all tasks have been added up, the winner from each country will be announced. But there’s more… A special Wild Card entry will be decided by a global judge, meaning that two people from each country will get to compete in the grand final at the truly amazing Hacienda PATRÓN in March 2023. How fantastic is that?

Both entry for the PATRÓN Perfectionists competition and the Academia PATRÓN Perfectionists workshops will be open from 1st September to 7th October. See* for details.
