H IS TORY
Patrón is a luxury brand of tequila, produced in Mexico and sold in hand-blown, individually numbered bottles. Entrepreneur John Paul DeJoria
founded Patrón in 1989. His goal was to make the best tequila in the world. DeJoria built a distillery in Jalisco, Mexico and appointed master
distiller Francisco Alcaraz to supervise Tequila production. Patrón is produced in small batches for high quality - over 60 pairs of hands touch
a bottle of Patrón before it is shipped.
Today Patrón tequila is served in more than 100 countries. Patrón continues to set new sales records every year, and was the first spirit brand
in its price point category to sell one million cases.
Small batches of Patrón are produced from 100% Weber blue agave. The mature agave plants are harvested and trimmed down to ‘piñas’.
The agave piñas are slowly steamed in clay ovens for 79 hours. The cooked agave piña is sweet and rich and is torn up once softened. The shredded
agave is placed in a shallow traditional stone pit, where it is macerated with large, natural stone milling wheels. The juice from the agave is
placed in wooden fermentation tanks for 72 hours. The mixture that results is called “must”. The must is distilled twice in traditional copper pot
sills. The first distillation produces a sweet, low alcohol brew. The second distillation is less sweet and produces much higher alcohol content.
After distillation, each batch is fine filtered and balanced.
