In 1989 to visionaries, formed the Patrón Spirits Company with the singular goal of producing the best tequila in the world. They took the 100% pure Waeber blue agave, grown in the hills of Jalisco, Mexico, and blended traditional techniques with modern technology. The created the world’s first ultra-premium tequila. Patrón tequila is today, the world’s number one ultra premium tequila outselling it’s nearest competitor by eight times alone. Patrón’s master distiller, Francisco Alcaraz, uses his skills of sight, touch and taste along with the latest technology to select the perfect agave. Only the agave with the right balance of sugar and acid are selected. Over 60 hands will touch a single bottle before it is shipped. Each hand-numbered bottle is absolutely unique and perfect as it leaves the Hacienda. Patrón is the world’s number 1 exporter of 100% Agave tequila and the facility has grown to accommodate the world’s demand. But Patrón is still produced in small batches for high quality.
From the bouquet on the Roca Silver, you’d never guess that it’s a higher of a proof tequila as it’s actually considerably less “in your face” than the traditional Patron Silver. Roca Patron Silver is absent of many of these signature aromas of the traditional silver. Roca Patron Silver is primarily a showcase for agave, with both fresh and cooked agave with a slight earthy undertone. There’s a light pepper but it’s a lot softer and lighter than traditional silver. Patron’s signature citrus isn’t there on the bouquet, which is overall lighter and more delicate.
