Patrón Tequila Gift Pack (3 x 200ml), $85.00, BWS

Do you ever find yourself scratching your head wondering what the difference between the different types of tequila is? This Patrón 3 x 200ml gift set is the perfect introductory taster set to familiarise yourself with the three main varieties of Patrón tequila. 

“Patrón Silver is best with light and refreshing options; i.e. soda, lime, tonic and cucumber, pineapple, or mixed in a margarita,” tequila expert Joey told WHO. 

According to Joey, Patrón Reposado is a light, but stronger spirit for a margarita that packs a punch. Meanwhile, the Patrón Anejo has “deeper whisky style notes” and “is best enjoyed on the rocks, with a slice of orange.”
