The History of Patron Tequila
Patron tequila is a smooth, slightly sweet liquor made from the agave plant, which is grown and harvested by local farmers in Jalisco, Mexico and distilled into tequila at Hacienda-Patron.
There are several aging categories for tequila. The most popular are plata (silver), reposado (rested), añejo (old), or extra-añejo (extra old). The longer tequila is aged, the smoother and more complex the flavor. No matter what age you prefer tequila, it all begins with the agave plant!
Agave is a slow-growing plant with blue tinted leaves and a heart of sweetness. After eight years, the heart (or pina) of the agave plant is harvested and roasted in an oven, then crushed, drawing out the sweetness and sugars. The mixture then ferments for at least three days before it’s distilled either in stainless steel barrels or aged for a longer period in wood.
Patron has been one of the top selling tequila distillers in the world since 1989. From the young Patron Silver tequila to the smoky-tinged sweetness of aged Añejo, Patron is renowned for its distinctive flavor and can be enjoyed on its own or in a variety of cocktails. Even the bottles and corks are handcrafted on-site!
