Time is ticking for Australian bartenders to submit their PATRÓN Perfectionist entries. Entries close at 23:59 AEST on September 30, 2023.
The entry challenge, Paint the World PATRÓN Paloma, will ask bartenders to create a PATRÓN Paloma, worthy of their favourite global city and of PATRÓN Tequila’s unwavering commitment to the highest quality ingredients. Featuring PATRÓN Reposado, soda water, a creative cordial flavoured as the bartender likes, grapefruit in some form, and inspired by their city of choice.
Does $5000, your name carved into our champions trophy, a trip of a lifetime to Hacienda PATRÓN in March 2024 for an experience-filled week with their fellow global finalists, a surprise panel of global mentors, judges, and the Familia PATRÓN in Atotonilco El Alto, Jalisco, Mexico sound appealing?
To inspire Australian bartenders, we asked Matt Whiley from Re and reigning Australian Perfectionists winner Alex Boon to take on the entry challenge.
Matt created ‘Six Hours in Shanghai’, a take on a Spicy Paloma using lacto-fermented grapefruit, grapefruit vinegar and grapefruit cordial. Alex Boon was inspired by European memories to craft his PATRÓN Paloma ‘Afternoon in Florence’ incorporating a bitter aperitif style grapefruit cordial.
