Patrón Aged Tequilas
While silver tequila is bottled soon after distillation and presents a crystal-clear appearance with smooth, sweet taste and light pepper finish, aged tequilas obtain additional color and nuanced flavor the longer they mature in oak barrels. Patrón aged tequilas are exceptionally smooth, perfect for sipping neat, on the rocks or in cocktails.
Each in its Own Time
To qualify as a reposado (“rested”), blanco tequila must be aged in oak barrels for at least 4 months. A variety of wood barrels can be used in the aging process, which results in tequilas with varying color and complexity.
Añejo tequilas must be aged from one to three years in oak barrels, to further impart complexity and define house style. Because of the length of aging, añejo tequilas will also demonstrate a dark golden color.
To qualify as an extra añejo, the blanco tequila must be aged for more than three years. This classification of tequila was recently authorized by the CRT (Mexico’s governing body for tequila) in 2006, making it the newest type of tequila allowed for production.
