Patron Anejo Tequila 100% De Agave 700ml
Warm amber in colour, the Patron Anejo Tequila has an aroma of oak wood, vanilla and raisins. On the palate is notes of vanilla, raisin and honey finishing off with caramel and smoky notes.
Agave ripens every eight years or so which is a very slow process so the skilled Jimadors take great care to find and uproot only those Blue Agave with optimal sugar content. Using a sharp tool called a Coa, they strip away the leaves to reveal the heart of the plant, the piña.
After being hand-chopped, the piñas are baked in small brick ovens to ensure they’re cooked evenly and then crushed by a two-ton volcanic stone Tahona wheel and a roller mill.
Their small-batch spirit is then bottled, but their attention to detail doesn’t stop there. Whether they are sustainably harvesting fine Portuguese cork or having the masters of French crystal, Lalique, design a beautiful crystal stopper, it must be perfect.
Their entire tequila-making process takes place at Hacienda Patrón, where only make Patrón is made. Mosy importantly the success of the Patron distillery is in the people involved in making their tequila – 60 hands from beginning to end.
Patrón Añejo is handcrafted from the finest 100% Weber Blue Agave and is carefully distilled in small batches at Hacienda Patrón distillery in Jalisco, Mexico. It's then aged in a combination of French oak, Hungarian oak and used American whiskey barrels.
