Description:
Patron Silver is called young or "joven" tequila. A similarity may be made to a young or nouvelle wine.

It is known for its light, fresh, crystal clear look and an elegant smoothness not found in other silver tequilas. Many prefer this smooth, soft and light tequila over an aged and slightly oaky flavour. Those that know the difference may find Patron Silver the finest silver tequila available. It is perfect for blending with a high quality mixer or may be easily sipped.

Patron Tequila, like the great wines and congacs of the world, is exceptional for a reason. It begins with the finest growing region in Mexico. High in the mountains of Jalisco exists a region which allows with perfect soil and climate which allows the sugar and acid balances of the Weaber Tequilana Blue Agave to mature and produce an 'Agave Pina' unequalled elsewhere in the world.

Like premium wine grapes, the sugar acid balance must be perfect before harvest.

Patron tequilas are the only tequilas truly produced in the traditional handmade fashion. After harvest the 'pina' are carefully selected, trimmed and then slowly steam baked. When cooked to perfection the 'pina' is macerated with large, natural, stone-milling wheels. The fermentation is done with the fibre of the 'pina' which helps impart its unique flavour and smoothness. After a double distillation process the tequila is aged in small oak barrels. When properly aged the tequila is fine filtered and ready for careful hand bottling.

Each bottle is invidually signed and given a unique bottle number due to the limited number produced.

Review: Think you don't like tequila. You've probably only ever had slammers in a dirty club. Patron Silver is where you journey should have started.
When sipped and enjoyed like tequila should be you'll discover the light flavours normally associated with wine and the intensity and complexity with single malt whisky.
And that's not it, as a bar tender this is my first choice in tequila based mixed drinks nearly everytime.
Treat yourself, your drinks shelf is short of a bottle if this is not on your shelf .

Producer Information

Patron is produced and blended by a small family owned and operated distillery high in the mountains of Jalisco. Recently an additional new distillery has been built which will incorporate the traditional tequila manufacturing methods of the past while integrating modern techniques of quality control. This particular growing region of Mexico is considered the most ideal for production of the Weaber Tequilana Blue Agave.
The climate is warm and the soil is clayey with high ferrous oxide content.
Patron tequilas are made from premium selected Weaber Tequilana Blue Agave plants. The trimmed heart of the agave plant resembles a large "pineapple". The trimmed agave "pineapples" weigh between 50 to 80 lbs. It takes 8 to 9 years for a premium Blue Agave to mature properly. Blue Agave grown in this region produce higher "honey" or sugar content, which when distilled produces a very individual character and flavour. There are certain "bitter" sprouts which must be carefully removed from the "pineapple" before steam baking. Few distilleries take the care and time to remove these sprouts. Patron does.
The next extremely important step in production is the slow vapour steam baking in masonry ovens. This steam baking takes approximately 36 hours. Most tequila factories fast cook the pineapples caramelizing the outside and leaving much of the inside under cooked, bitter and starchy. The cooked agave is then carefully torn and placed in a shallow stone milling pit and slowly macerated by large stone milling wheels. Crushing in this fashion leaves the sweet juice freely absorbed in the mescal fibers. The juice filled fiber is then placed in wooden fermentation vats. Once in the fermentation vats the juice is naturally adjusted and yeast added to encourage fermentation. This fermentation lasts for 60 to 72 hours.
The "must" is then submitted to a double distillation in copper pot sills. The first distillation produces a low alcohol content, the second produces a much higher alcohol content. The tequila is then balanced to 80 proof 40% Alc. by volume and fine filtered.
