Silver Tequila Limited Edition Heritage Tin 2018
Each year Patrón creates a limited edition Heritage Tin for its iconic Silver Tequila that celebrates Mexican history, mythology and culture. We are proud to announce that the 2018 Edition has now been exclusively released at Harvey Nichols.
Graphic designer Joel Berrelleza from Mazatlán in Sinaloa is inspired by his homeland’s vibrancy and the joy of its people, summing up his feelings by saying simply “Mexico is colour.” For this bright gift tin he has penned detailed depictions of day and night, the fertility of the native flora and fauna, and pre-Columbian motifs such as the Mexican wolf – a symbol of camaraderie and family. We recommend enjoying this crystal-clear, peppery and citrusy Silver Tequila with the family over Mazatlán specialities like ceviche and chiloria, or with the wolfpack mixed into classic cocktails such as Margaritas.
The team at Hacienda Patrón say: “We didn’t invent Tequila, we just perfected it.” And when you taste their spirit, it’s obvious that they really have. Each bottle takes thirty people to hand craft it. The process starts in the Jalisco highlands, where the Weber Blue Agave takes eight or more years to ripen. These huge plants are then harvested and chopped manually. The enormous hearts, or piña, are baked in brick ovens for at least three days, before being crushed with an almost two tonne volcanic stone Tahona wheel. The juice is then fermented for 72 hours, then distilled in handmade copper stills by Francisco Alcaraz, who has been with the company from the very start. The Tequila is finally filled into artisan bottles and topped with a bulbous cork created in Lisbon. Each painstakingly perfect step is carried out by hand.
And as if that wasn’t enough, Tequila Patrón also recycle their water, compost their leftover agave, invest in sustainable agave, plant trees, educate their workers, support their community food bank and work with two orphanages. So this is good Tequila in more ways than one.
