In 1989 to visionaries, formed the Patrón Spirits Company with the singular goal of producing the best tequila in the world. They took the 100% pure Waeber blue agave, grown in the hills of Jalisco, Mexico, and blended traditional techniques with modern technology. The created the world’s first ultra-premium tequila. Patrón tequila is today, the world’s number one ultra premium tequila outselling it’s nearest competitor by eight times alone. Patrón’s master distiller, Francisco Alcaraz, uses his skills of sight, touch and taste along with the latest technology to select the perfect agave. Only the agave with the right balance of sugar and acid are selected. Over 60 hands will touch a single bottle before it is shipped. Each hand-numbered bottle is absolutely unique and perfect as it leaves the Hacienda. Patrón is the world’s number 1 exporter of 100% Agave tequila and the facility has grown to accommodate the world’s demand. But Patrón is still produced in small batches for high quality.
The bouquet is quiet, with a crisp focus on lemon — think lemon meringue pie — and agave in the distant background. The body is silky as all get out. This is the kind of tequila people will invariably describe as “smooth” as they knock it back a handle at a time. It’s got just the right consistency, melding the bite of agave with more lemony citrus, vanilla custard, a dusting of cinnamon, and a touch of woody lumberyard notes. The finish fades from sweet and soothing to drying and clean with a twist of lime, a nifty little trick.
