Global Tequila brand Patrón has announced that bartender Alex Boon from Melbourne’s Pearl Diver Cocktails & Oysters has taken out the Australian leg of the Patrón Perfectionists competition.

The competition presented the ten finalists with two challenges. The first, called Hometown Hero, asked bartenders to develop a cocktail that blends Patrón Silver Tequila with the bartender’s local culture, using ingredients from a prescribed list, the Pantry. Alex created his cocktail, Frankie, with the help of local ingredient and breakfast staple, Uncle Toby’s Oats.

The second round was the My Masterpiece challenge which resulted in Boon masterfully presenting his cocktail 60 Hands Highball showcasing the iconic Australian Mango, which he paired perfectly with Patrón Silver.

“What an amazing national final,’ said Joey Chisholm, Patrón Tequila Execution Manager. “Alex’s presentation skills and overall drink concept for both challenges is what got him over the line in what was a very tight final.

“I am super excited to take Alex over to Mexico to the Global finals in March,” Chisholm continued, “and hopefully deliver back-to-back wins for Australia!”
