Our F.A.B Winners Guac a Soft Spot for Mexico!
Our FAB Winners Guac a Soft Spot for Mexico!
Las Iguanas’ Food and beverage Challenge winners rewarded with a week in Sunny Mexico
The October chill has arrived and Summer is officially over; however, two talented Las Iguanas Bartenders are currently living the dream in Mexico. Charli from Aberdeen and Greg from Glasgow took home the gold at this year’s FAB challenge where they had to demonstrate their Bar-tending skills for a chance to win a trip to the home of Tacos and Tequila! Areeba!
As one of the Latin American countries that so inspired Las Iguanas and its menu, we wanted to give our winners a true taste of our Mexican roots. From a tour of Casa D’Ariati and Downtown Merida, to a visit to Xel-Ha and the Chichen Itza ruins, they are in the midst of a jam-packed week. A week so jam-packed in fact that they managed to catch the Day of the Dead festival in the very village that it originated from.
Charli and Greg have already had the pleasure of visiting the great Chichen Itza. Mayan ruins found on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula, it is a popular attraction with a multitude of architectural sites.
A tour of the Casa D’Ariati distillery can also be found on their itinerary. Based in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico, the distillery produces authentic, exotic and natural rum-based liqueurs. Three of these are shipped off to the UK and our restaurants: Xta, Huana liqueur, and Kalani. Xta is made from Honey and Aniseed and our fellow Iguanas get to see where these components are sourced.
With a good few days still ahead of them, we wish Greg and Charli an amazing trip! Congratulations again for winning this year’s epic F.A.B Challenge.
We are always running a number of exciting incentives and events with opportunities to win trips to Rio and Cuba, vouchers of your choice, and team nights out!
