Patrón Tequila Invites You to Vote One More Time

November 8, 2016 — The Patrón Spirits Companywants you to vote one more time!  But this time it will fun.  The company has just announced the top 10 finalists in the third “Art of Patrón” Bottle Art Contest.  The iconic Patrón bottle screams “save me” and we’re betting a whole lot of fans already have a stash of them that they use for other purposes.  This contest challenges the artistically inclined to find unique ways to repurpose the signature Patrón tequila bottle into works of art and win $10,000.

Hundreds of entries from across the country have been narrowed down to 10 by a panel of judges made up of artisans, past Art of Patrón winners, and members of the spirits community.  Votes were based on creativity and the short descriptive essay each artist submitted.   Importantly, you get a chance to vote, too.

The place to go to see the 10 finalist designs and cast your vote is  You can vote once a day until November 13.  The entries are stunning and involved a lot of talent and time.  From wall art and wind chimes to an amazing hammock made of corks, there’s inspiration and talent aplenty on display from our fellow Americans.  The winner with the highest vote tally from both the public and the judges combined walks away with the Grand Prize of $10,000; nine runners up get $1,000 each.  Results will be announced December 6, 2016.
