It's not often a legacy brand comes around makes something truly fantastic. When I think Patron, I'm usually taken back to a high-end club or perhaps a round of shots to celebrate a great achievement. But the craftsman at Patron decided to up their game and make a truly special Tequila. The Gran Patron Burdeos is almost a night and day difference in quality than the Patron you're used to. Aged with 100% Weber Blue agave in new french oak barrels and then finished in vintage Bordeaux wine barrels gives Gran Patron Burdeos a delightful oaky flavor combined with a deep amber color from the aging process.

Made from the highest quality blue agave in Jalisco, the Hacienda Patron, where Patron is made, gives the tequila the best available plant stock and specifically chooses what agave goes into each barrel.

Patron ticks all the required boxes to be considered a tequila and not a mezcal. Made in Tequila...check...made in with 100 weber blue agave...check. Distilled at the Hacienca...BINGO.
Can I visit the Patron Distallary?
Yes you can! You can visit the Hacienda and they do tours of the grounds as well as samples of their latest tequila batches. It's well worth it to make a visit and to take in the beauty of not only Jalisco but also all of the tequila region. It's a beautiful sight to see miles and miles of agave similar to visiting the vineyards of France. We highly recommend making a trip down and sipping on some delicious tequila.
