Patron

www.patrontequila.com   Patron Logo

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.
