Patrón Launches Limited Edition AñejoMarch 13, 2015
Patrón Spirits has unveiled its first-ever limited edition offering, Patrón Extra Añejo 7 Años. The company’s oldest offering to date, the 100% Weber Blue agave Tequila was aged seven years in 30 French oak barrels at the Hacienda Patrón distillery in Jalisco, Mexico. It was originally meant to age one year, but the company says that as more barrels were added to the aging room, it was forgotten for seven years. Its location in the aging room allowed it to maintain its agave character.
Patrón Extra Añejo 7 Años (80 proof) is bottled in a replica of the first hand-blown glass Patrón bottles and finished with a glass stopper. It retails at $299 a 750-ml., with fewer than 700 cases available nationwide. Last year, Patrón Spirits’ flagship Tequila grew 4% to cross the 2-million-case mark in the U.S. boosted by the success of its artisanal Roca Patrón line ($70-$90 a 750-ml.).
