Agave bar Hacha is bringing back its competition to find Britain’s best tequila and mezcal cocktails, with the grand final to be held on Monday 18th September.

Having first launched the competition in 2019, both Britain’s Best Tequila and Mezcal competition submissions are now open, with UK bartenders invited to enter their creations using one of the competition's partner brands by Tuesday 15th August. 

After a number of tastings and shortlisting rounds, the chosen finalists will be invited to participate in the final at Hacha Brixton in September.

The finalists will each present their cocktail to a panel of judges made up of the UK’s top drinks writers alongside Hacha founders Deano Moncrieffe and Emma Murphy. 

The winning cocktails will be featured and served exclusively at Hacha for a year and promoted extensively throughout social media and PR channels. The winning bartenders will receive a trip to visit one of The World’s 50 Best Bars as well as a beautiful agave inspired trophy, a coveted first edition copy of The Tequila Ambassador by the late great Tomas Estes and the opportunity to host a takeover at Hacha with their winning brand.
