100% Agave Tequila Anejo Tequila

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.

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.

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.
