After agave-packed regional heats in London, Manchester and Edinburgh, eight bartenders have been selected as the finalists of the Patrón Perfectionists cocktail competition.

This year's UK finalists are Alex King of Artesian in London; Giulia Cuccurullo, also of Artesian; Josh Joyce of Fare in London; Harry Cosmo Boardman of HMSS in Bristol; Kieran Grieves of Cairn Hotel Group in Newcastle; Jack Riley of Present Company in Liverpool; Ryan Snedden of Lucky Liquor in Edinburgh; and Matthew Cusworth of Hoot the Redeemer in Edinburgh. 

These bartenders will go on to compete in the national final in September, where one champion will be chosen to represent the UK at the global final in January.

Yep, that means they'll make the trip to Jalisco, Mexico, home of Patrón Tequila, and show off their skills against 21 other international finalists representing 30 countries.

Who will be crowned the national champion and endeavour to bring home the glory for the UK? Stay tuned...
