Created at specific proof levels to ensure the best flavor profile, Roca Patron is the perfect spirit for tequila connoisseurs.


Tickets for the event are available at $25 per person and include a Patron Estate Release Specialty Cocktail. To comply with all current social distancing requirements, limited tickets are available.


Taverna opened in March 2016 at the Kapalua Resort. Taverna was created to be an “upscale, rustic gathering place offering inspired Italian cuisine and craft cocktails in a relaxed and casual setting.”
