PATRÓN, the ultra-premium tequila, has announced the release of its latest aged expression, PATRÓN Sherry Cask Aged Añejo. Born within the walls of Hacienda PATRÓN distillery in Jalisco, Mexico, this limited-edition tequila was conceived originally by former Master Distiller, Francisco Alcaraz.
PATRÓN Sherry Cask Aged Añejo matures for more than two years in Spanish oak barrels once used to produce the finest Oloroso sherry. Each barrel is unique, requiring current Master Distiller, David Rodriguez, to blend the tequila from each cask in order to achieve the perfect expression. It draws inspiration from sherry, a fortified, aged, and blended wine made only in the Andalucia region in Southern Spain, also known as “the Sherry triangle.”
Our new Sherry Cask Aged Añejo tequila reveals the special multi-dimensional nature of PATRÓN, and its ability to imbue delightfully unique flavors to classic cocktails that are traditionally crafted using other spirits. Not only that, but this tequila features a distinct and exceptional taste profile, with more pronounced and complex aromas. I am enormously proud of this innovation and can’t wait for people to try this tequila, which is a reflection of our masterful process that demands painstaking artisanal talent. – David Rodriguez, PATRÓN Master Distiller
This deeply complex and aromatic tequila is characterized by a crystalline, amber-gold color with notes of caramel, toasted walnuts, coconut, fresh apricots, sun-dried juicy medjool dates, and pear, and hints of banana, freshly-baked agave, and vanilla pudding. The sherry barrels also impart a tantalizing hint of pecans. The new release possesses a depth of flavors like fig preserves, stone fruit compote, caramel, toasted walnuts, coconut, and fermented pineapple with spices and piloncillo.
PATRÓN Sherry Cask Aged Añejo Tequila is available now until supplies last and sold exclusively in the United States on drizly.com and at retailers for a suggested retail price of $79.99 per 750ml bottle.
