We have some truly crushing news.
Patrón XO Cafe – also known as Cafe Patron, also known as your go-to when you’re tasked with getting a round of shots – is being discontinued.
Bacardí told The Grocer that it is scrapping production of the coffee-infused tequila, meaning it’ll soon disappear from our supermarket shelves and bartenders’ cabinets.
Why, you ask, why?
Apparently a coffe-flavoured tipple is simply not a top priority for the brand.
Instead, they want to focus on ‘other Patrón super and ultra premium variants’.
As you’d expect, people have been left truly crushed by this news.
Good night, sweet prince
While we don’t know when Cafe Patron will disappear (though we’d recommend stocking up if you spot it), it’s probably worth finding a decent alternative.
So, to tide us through these tough times, let’s get to grips with some other coffee booze options…
