Yesterday I received a last minute invitation from Patron Tequila and Exposure PR to come on down to Hyde Park Corner to watch Kings of Leon perform live for Hard Rock Calling. What a night. We were ushered backstage (or more like backyard as it was in Hyde Park) and swiftly shown to the pop-up Patron Tequila bar. The silvery bar was entertaining all the VIPs present for the concert and as we sipped various cocktails we heard the story behind Patron’s involvement with the concert. Apparently Kings of Leon swear by the spectacular tipple and had asked Patron to participate in the festival. And up went the pop-up bar! Along with the bar the band were each given a bottle of Gran Patron Platinum with their names engraved on the bottle and looked mighty pleased as they received their gift. And who wouldn’t be? If you know anything about Tequila you know that Patron is the only Tequila to drink! Although, I’ve fallen in love with their coffee flavoured tequila, which I had a chance to try for the first time yesterday. You can drink it straight on ice and for me this is going to spell out serious trouble!
A big thank you to Patron Tequila, Exposure PR and Kings of Leon (especially Caleb who made me blush ten shades of red when he commented on my height). What a night! For those interested, you can buy yourself or a loved one a specially engraved bottle of the Gran Patron Platinum Tequila at Harvey Nichols for £195.
