Patron Perfectionists Top 6 Finalists


We are pleased to announce the TOP 6 finalists of the Patron Perfectionists South Africa, we cannot wait and see them in action at the Patron Perfectionist 2019 event in Cape Town.

With hundreds of mixologists and bartenders around South Africa participating in this year’s Patron Perfectionists competition, we were pleased to see nominations from across our beautiful province and this year’s finalists have emerged from a strong and varied field. A brilliant spread geographically and a really good blend of different drinks.

The brand, synonymous with craftsmanship is all about attention to detail and pride in the perfection process.

From the perfectionists who craft the tequila, the mixologists who use Patrón to create beautiful cocktails all the way to the consumer who wants to savour their experience while enjoying a premium tequila. This perfection can be seen in the jimadors selecting the Weber Blue Agave that makes the world-famous tequila, it can be seen in the attention to detail when crafting every single bottle, in fact, it can be seen in every decision one makes.

After careful review and with a long, loud drum roll the top six as follows:

Josh Kaplan, from ‘SoCal Bar’ – (Cape Town)

Cameron-Leigh, from Henning ‘Marble Restaurant – (Johannesburg)

Taneale van der Merwe, from ‘The Little Fox’ – (Johannesburg)
