Patron XO Café Dark Tequila 750ml
Patron XO Cafe Dark Cocoa is a blend of premium Patron Silver tequila, pure cocoa and the natural essences of the finest coffee. Patron XO Cafe Dark is drier than other chocolate liqueurs, making it extremely even. Made by hand with the same attention to detail and quality as all other Patron tequilas.
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 XO Café Dark Liqueur essence has the taste of fine coffee however the tequila is front and centre. Excellent for sipping, in cocktails or as a dessert ingredient.
