Delicate and balanced, this Tequila is pale straw in the glass, with hardly any color. The nose and palate seem to trade back and forth between jabs of jalapeno pepper and smoothing vanilla-honey sweetness, even into the elongated fade. Sip or mix.
The Tequila Siete Leguas distillery was responsible for producing the "original" Patron Tequila brand, and brand rights were sold to St. Maarten Spirits, owners John Paul DeJoria (Paul Mitchell Hair Products) and Martin Crowley in 1989. As the brand grew, Tequila Siete Leguas was no longer able to keep up with production, and Patron built a new distillery and moved all production in 2002.
