Ste­fanos in Mexico for Dons of Te­quila fi­nal

Financial Mirror (Cyprus) - - FRONT PAGE -

Ste­fanos Athana­siou, owner of the Madame Bar in Li­mas­sol, is in Mexico this month to take part in the fi­nals of the Dons of Te­quila cock­tail com­pe­ti­tion.

Ste­fanos was one of 17 cho­sen in na­tional com­pe­ti­tions by the lo­cal dis­trib­u­tors of Jose Cuervo te­quila who won a trip to the 250-year old dis­tillery in La Ro­jeña, Te­quila. There, the fi­nal­ists will be given the chance to harvest their own crop of agave on the Jose Cuervo es­tate, blend it into their very own Te­quila which will be batched and la­belled un­der their own name.

The 17 fi­nal­ists are Clé­ment Mau­cuit, of France; Erica Rossi, of Italy; Andy Walch, of Switzer­land; Lee Daniel Hobbs, of Ger­many; Lef­teris Pet­ro­ge­or­gakis, of Greece; Laura Duca, of UAE; Thi­ago Sanchez, of Brazil; John An­der­son Bautista, of Colom­bia; Jair Rosas, of Peru; Ariel Rosario, of Puerto Rico; Ni­co­las Lam­borizzio, of Ar­gentina; Ed­win Are­nas, of Chile; An­gel­ica Cas­tro, of Philip­pines; Tessa Ker­slake, of New Zealand; Sung-Min Park, of Korea; Koji Esashi, of Ja­pan; and Ste­fanos Athana­siou, of Cyprus.

Be­com­ing a Don of Te­quila is the ul­ti­mate ac­co­lade, fit only for the very best,” said Juan-Domingo Beck­mann, Jose Cuervo CEO.

“We are ex­cited to see how the bar­tenders fare in what is bound to be a tough fi­nal.”

The group of fi­nal­ists will be put through a se­ries of chal­lenged where a panel of ex­pert judges will de­ter­mine their “pas­sion, grit and co­jones” to de­cide the next Don of Te­quila. Jose Cuervo’s Dons of Te­quila com­pe­ti­tion is part of a long-term ed­u­ca­tion plat­form, at the heart of which sits the Dons web­site pro­vid­ing a “de­fin­i­tive re­source” on the brand.
