1st Place: A bottle of Tequila Patron & 4 days / 3 nights stay at Maraica Hotel in Rivera NayaritWith a unique concept that keeps nature as main amenity and guide, our guests walk the path towards reconnection with earth. In Maraica San Pancho we excel for honoring and maintaining as headlight the enigmatic “Wixárika” culture. This mythology and philosophy is recurring in every corner of the hotel, and its protuberance is shared all around with our incredible sustainable architecture; the palm ceilings, parota furniture, the immense windows with amazing views, all this letting slip inside radiant sensations of the Mexican Pacific.

2nd Place: A bottle of Tequila Patron & Lunch or Dinner for 2 at any El Pastor restaurants in London – The El Pastor family is a small group of authentic Mexican taquerias in London. They make the tortillas for their tacos in-house using heritage Mexican corn.

3rd Place: A bottle of Tequila Patrón & A Mexican Mama box with a selection of Mexican products & ingredients – Mexican Mama was formed in 2018 with the aim of sharing everything we love about our home with our new friends in the UK.

4th Place – Special Mention: A bottle of Tequila Patron- ‘The best flavor develops slowly and naturally. That’s why from the start we’ve made tequila the hard way – never taking shortcuts and using only high-quality raw ingredients to develop deep, complex flavours.’
