Description:
Patron Anejo is a delicate blend of uniquely aged tequilas. As in many premium red wines the blends must be adjusted for each vintage. The same care and attention is paid when blending Patron Anejo. All the aged tequilas are aged in small, white oak barrels.

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.

Review: Wow wow wow! I had previously tried the Jose Cuervo Anejo which, whilst good, is nowhere near as smooth as this. Is this worth the extra 20-odd quid. Well the tequila is hand poured into hand-made bottles, and individually numbered by hand. But none of that marketing gumpf is any good if the product doesn't stand up. And tis one does. It is simply delicious.

Review: I decided on a recent trip to Las Iguanas to try their best tequila and this was it. My previous tequila experience was supermarket shelf; Jose Cuervo Gold and Sauza Silver which to be honest, I always thought they tasted a little rough. Not bad when you\\\'re knocking them back with salt and lemon but certainly not the kind of thing you\\\'d want to savour.

Put simply, Patron Anejo is the finest tequila I have ever tasted. It was like experiencing Stolichnaya Elit for the first time after only previously drinking Smirnoff Red (I\\\'m a little more vodka savvy these days). It was luxuriously smooth and delicate yet still very much disntinctive in its character. It was the perfect ending to a perfectly decadent evening.

So now I have my tastes range of tequila neatly book ended, I will now embark on discovering a middle path. This is because I am poor and cannot afford the expense of a whole bottle of Patron Anejo to myself (though I may club together with friends). If you can afford it however, I can wholeheartedly recommend you buy it.

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.
