Gran Patron Burdeos Anejo Tequila is distilled at 55 percent alcohol volume from the finest blue Agave grown in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. The Tequila is matured in a blend of American and French oak barrels and aged for a minimum of 12 months.
It is then distilled again before it is racked in vintage Bordeaux barrels, hand-selected from the great chateaux of France to add the distinctive flavors of vanilla, raisins and dried fruit found in the finest Bordeaux wine.
Each bottle is placed in a box handcrafted from a single piece of black walnut, designed to double as a display case for the bar. Set in a bed of suede, the unleaded crystal bottle is cork finished like wine and sealed with a crystal cap. The packaging includes a specially designed corkscrew to assist with opening and an unleaded crystal bee stopper to preserve every drop.
Patron History: The original Patron Tequila was produced by Tequila Siete Leguas, and brand rights were sold to St. Maarten Spirits, owners John Paul DeJoria (Paul Mitchell Hair Products) and Martin Crowley in 1989.
As the brand grew, Tequila Siete Leguas was no longer able to keep up with production, and Patron built a new distillery and moved all production in 2002.
