Gran Patrón Burdeos Añejo Tequila
Gran Patrón // Los Altos, Jalisco, Mexico
Released under the Gran Patrón label by Patrón Spirits, this añejo tequila follows a unique production process. This tequila is distilled twice before being aged at least one year in American and French oak barrels. It is then distilled again and stored in vintage Bordeaux barrels. This process gives this tequila its name - "Burdeos" is Spanish for Bordeaux.
Tequila AñejoDistilled from 100% blue Weber agave, it is aged for at least a year in barrels not to exceed 600 liters. Any type of wood is acceptable, but ex-bourbon barrels are most common. Añejo tequilas are also known as "aged" or "extra aged".
Cask TypeAmerican and French oak finished in ex Bordeaux wine barrels
"With a beautiful dark amber color, this tequila's aroma is what you would expect from a spirit finished in Bordeaux barrels: rich and slightly oaky with a hint of sweet dried fruit. On the palate, agave notes meld beautifully with equally rich vanilla and oak. This tequila's intensity and depth will have you rethinking what aged tequila can be. It's best enjoyed neat or over a large ice cube. "
