PATRON ANEJO Tequila
Patron Anejo is a delicate blend of uniquely aged tequilas. As in many premium red wines the blends must be adjusted for each vintage. The same care and attention is paid when blending Patron Anejo. All the aged tequilas are aged in small, white oak barrels.
Patron Tequila, like the great wines and congacs of the world, is exceptional for a reason. It begins with the finest growing region in Mexico. High in the mountains of Jalisco exists a region which allows with perfect soil and climate which allows the sugar and acid balances of the Weaber Tequilana Blue Agave to mature and produce an 'Agave Pina' unequalled elsewhere in the world.
Like premium wine grapes, the sugar acid balance must be perfect before harvest.
Patron tequilas are the only tequilas truly produced in the traditional handmade fashion.
After harvest the 'pina' are carefully selected, trimmed and then slowly steam baked.
When cooked to perfection, the 'pina' is macerated with large, natural, stone-milling wheels. The fermentation is done with the fiber of the 'pina' which helps impart its unique flavour and smoothness. After a double distillation process the tequila is aged in small oak barrels. When properly aged the tequila is fine filtered and ready for careful hand bottling.
Each bottle is invidually signed and given a unique bottle number due to the limited number produced.
