With at-home entertaining at an all-time high, PATRÓN, the world's number one ultra-premium tequila, collaborated with Barsys, the innovative start-up committed to cocktail perfection, to create a limited-edition kit to teach users how to make the ultimate at-home PATRÓN margarita and tequila cocktails. This first-of-its-kind partnership leverages the innovative Barsys smart coaster technology with PATRÓN tequila recipes and tools allowing people to easily perfect their at-home bartending skills.
Just because summer is coming to a close, doesn't mean margarita season is over. Now, more than ever, virtual parties with family and intimate BBQs with friends are taking the place of in-person events and the PATRÓN Margarita Smart Coaster by Barsys is a must-have tool to spice up any at-home gathering. The limited-edition kit comes fully equipped with the Barsys 'smart coaster', two PATRÓN rocks glasses, a custom PATRÓN branded TAJÍN salt rimmer, lime squeezer, and shaker, providing users all the tools needed to craft the Perfect Margarita and a variety of other delicious, versatile and simple cocktails at-home. A bottle of PATRÓN tequila is not included in the kit and will need to be purchased separately at https://www.patrontequila.com/buy.html.
Enabled by Barsys Smart Bar Technology, the Coaster connects directly to smartphones through the Barsys Coaster app and guides the user to precisely measure each cocktail ingredient as it's poured, ensuring a perfect cocktail every time. The cocktail recommendation engine turns device owners into instant mixologists that can make thousands of cocktails at a click of a button.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, tequila sales have grown 66.5%, according to Nielsen data and has outpaced the growth of the overall spirits category . PATRÓN is dedicated to providing new and innovative experiences for tequila fans and cocktail connoisseurs to enjoy responsibly while staying home. The limited-edition PATRÓN Margarita Smart Coaster by Barsys and partnership with Barsys further showcases PATRÓN's continued commitment to providing best-in-class experiences for people and is an exciting new way to spice up at-home entertaining bringing together smart technology and cocktail making.
"When most people think of a margarita, they think of it as a summer cocktail, however, the margarita is such a versatile drink and should be enjoyed all year long. Together with Barsys we made that possible, and found a way to elevate the at-home cocktail experience by providing innovative technology and tools to create high quality and unique margarita recipes at-home," said Adrian Parker, Global Vice President, Marketing for PATRÓN Tequila at Bacardi Global Brands Limited.

The partnership with Barsys is our latest example of our commitment to help our customers create moments that matter."
"When it comes to creating experiences, PATRÓN shares our passion for innovation and perfection and is an ideal first partner for Barsys," said Akshet Tewari CEO and Founder. "Together with PATRÓN, we are able to offer customers the ability to perfect their margarita making skills along with so many other versatile cocktail offerings in an approachable and accessible way. Barsys has always been about bringing great cocktails into the home. Our technologies break down the barrier to cocktail enjoyment, helping people both understand and craft amazing drinks."
