Local mixologist, Jared Schmidt, won big at the 2020 Patron Perfectionists Challenge in Mexico. Schmidt’s “It Takes a Valley” Cocktail won silver using several local Okanagan ingredients, including unripe wine grapes from Summerhill Vineyards, herbal liqueur infused with BC Gala apples and Nomad Cider plus Patron Silver tequila.
My parents always used to say I was too much of a perfectionist, but last night I was just the right amount of one. It was an honour to place silver in Patron Perfectionists 2020, and to have my whole country supporting me - that was solid gold. Thank you everyone! #patronperfectionists #simplyperfect.
