The history of tequila can be roughly divided into two periods: before Patrón and after Patrón. Patrón, which debuted in 1989, shattered the stereotype of tequila as a bad-tasting bottom-shelf party drink and nearly single-handedly lifted it to the ranks of whiskey and cognac in the spirits pantheon. Patrón Silver tequila is a beautiful unaged spirit that is wonderful for sipping and mixing. Agave, eucalyptus, and white pepper flavors combine for a smooth, savory finish.
Patrón Silver tequila, the world's first ultra-premium tequila, should be savored from the first sip, with its exquisite scent of fruits leading to a sweet and smooth taste. It's prepared with a Patrón-exclusive handcrafted technique that provides it the optimum combination of fresh agave flavor and baked agave undertones, which are key influencer notes in all Patrón Tequilas. Patrón's specialty is Agave pinas, which are crushed with a traditional tahona stone rather than a mill. This method ensures that the agave flavor is purer. Patrón Silver is handcrafted in small batches at the Hacienda Patrón distillery in Jalisco, Mexico, using only the finest 100% Weber Blue Agave with optimal sugar content. Patrón Tequila never uses any additives to alter aroma, flavor, texture, or color.
Fresh tequila with the most earthy flavors is what Patrón Silver is all about. Patrón Silver Tequila is popular with the general public since it can be used as shots, neat, or in any cocktail. Cooked agave has a wonderful vegetal aroma with fruit and citrus, evoking the terroir of Jalisco. With undertones of eucalyptus, it's also a little earthy. Then it leads to a sweet and smooth taste with a light pepper finish.
Patrón Silver is an extraordinarily versatile spirit that can be enjoyed neat, from the freezer, over ice, or in the perfect cocktail. A popular ingredient in margaritas, it's also excellent in classics like Mules, Bloody Marys, and Mojitos. If you must, take a shot, but you'll miss out on the undeniably Patrón citrus overtones and crisp agave aromas.
