June 28, 2019 — Tequila lovers and people with beautiful bars, this is your moment.
Patrón, the ultra-premium tequila has gone super-ultra-premium with the release of Gran Patrón Smoky. The bottle is so beautiful you absolutely have to have it and what a perfect gift for the third marriage of your best friend-who-has-everything.
The company describes it as using an ancient cooking process to cook the agave, not typically seen in tequila production. The process dates back hundreds of years. It starts with 100 percent Weber Blue Agave. The heart of the agave plant, the Piña, is roasted with mesquite for about seven days in small underground stone pits at the Patrón Hacienda in the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. The cooked agave is crushed slowly with a volcanic stone tahona wheel before the juice and agave fibers are placed together in pine wood fermenters and then distilled in small-capacity copper pot stills.
Notes from the company describe it as smooth and sweet with smoked agave, highlighting citrus and fruity notes with a long peppery finish. Gran Patrón Smoky is available nationwide with a suggested retail of $199. Enjoy on the rocks or in a premium cocktail.
