Taco Bell Philippines - Live Mas

Taco Bell's first branch in the Philippines (Ground floor, Gateway Mall) has undergone big changes and is now bigger and "mas". As the Filipino food culture is shifting from "food as fuel" to "food as experience", Taco Bell is welcoming this experience with a new maxim - "Live Mas (more)". 

Live Mas is an idea that builds off the foundation Glenn Bell, founder of Taco Bell, created for the brand - an idea to never stop exploring.

Hundreds of bartenders all over the Philippines are being called to enter into a battle unlike any other, as Jose Cuervo, the world’s best-selling tequila, launches Dons of Tequila, the global search for the next hero of tequila who has what it takes to continue the legacy of the 250-year-old brand. The prize of a lifetime awaits: fly to Tequila, Mexico to harvest their own crop of agave on the Jose Cuervo estate, blend it into a unique tequila and win the batch, labelled under their own name. 

Aspiring Dons can join this first-of-its-kind challenge by uploading a photo of their signature tequila-based cocktail or shot serve at Ten (10) bartenders will be selected to compete in the National Finals in July, where they have to show that they have the grit, passion, and cojones of a true Don. 

The local finalists will be guided by Jose Cuervo’s Dons of Tequila Mentors – veterans in their field and true Instigators – Prive Luxury Club’s cocktail bartender and Diageo Reserve World Class 2014 winner Jerry Miranda, T.G.I. Friday’s Genrev Bacasno, who recently bagged second runner-up honors at the 23rd Annual World Bartender Championship, and celebrated personality Divine Lee. Jerry, Genrev, and Divine will lead a Bartenders Bootcamp, designed to prepare the ten for the National Finals, where their creativity, technical knowledge, and personality will be judged by the Instigators, together with the Jose Cuervo Brand Ambassadors. The winner will hold the title Don of Tequila in the Philippines, and will represent the country in the Jose Cuervo Dons of Tequila Global Finals for a chance to follow the footsteps of some of the world’s legends of tequila. 

The Dons of Tequila Global Finals is a showdown of the best-of-the-best from each country, set against the Jose Cuervo distillery, La Rojeña, in the town of Tequila, in Mexico.
