The Global Final took place last night at the home of Patrón Tequila, Hacienda Patrón in Jalisco Mexico, where the six finalists (including the UK’s very own Greg Almeida of the Rosewood Hotel’s Scarfes Bar) took to the bar to compete for the title.

The winning tipple, called ‘Dancing Bees’, is made with Patrón Reposado, yellow chartreuse, dried chamomile, yuzu purée, passionfruit syrup, lime juice and water.

“The competition has been amazing,” said Tong. “I have met a lot of new friends and learnt a lot during the journey. The Patrón Perfectionists cocktail competition has been so exciting, I’ve been dreaming about seeing real agave and my dream has come true. I’m so excited to have won, and can’t wait to go back to China and tell my family.
