With PATRÓN Tequila at the helm, the Bacardi family of brands, among the likes of BACARDÍ Rum, GREY GOOSE Vodka and BOMBAY SAPPHIRE Gin, will become the first-ever official global spirits partner of the Oracle Red Bull Racing team.
Oracle Red Bull Racing, which holds multiple Constructors’ and Drivers’ world titles and more than 80 race wins to its credit, continue leading the pack on the track and pursuing ultimate performance. Just as PATRÓN goes to extraordinary lengths to deliver perfection in every drop of its 100% naturally perfect tequila, Oracle Red Bull Racing displays the same tireless dedication to perfection-from the drivers to the crews to the passionate fans who live for the sport and team.
This partnership further deepens the brand’s connection to PATRÓN family member and beloved Mexican racing icon Checo Pérez, one of Oracle Red Bull Racing Team’s breakout drivers.
Over the weekend, PATRÓN kicked off this exciting relationship with Oracle Red Bull Racing at the U.S. Grand Prix in Miami, sharing the news during the PATRÓN Pit Stop experience on Cinco de Mayo. The PATRÓN Pit Stop featured a showstopping performance from global superstar Becky G, who introduced Oracle Red Bull Racing principal, CEO Christian Horner, and Perez. They surprised guests attending the exclusive party with a video from the duo announcing the partnership.
