Patrón Añejo 5 Años is a rare tequila made from the finest 100% Weber Blue Agave that is aged for five years in hybrid new American limousin oak and used whiskey barrels. It is presented in a hand-blown glass replica of the very first Patrón bottle.
Agave ripens slowly: Every eight or so years. So our skilled Jimadors take great care to find and uproot only those Weber Blue Agave with optimal sugar content. Using a sharp tool called a Coa, they strip away the leaves to reveal the heart of the plant, the piña.
After being hand-chopped, our piñas are baked in small brick ovens to ensure they’re cooked evenly. Then, they’re crushed by a two-ton volcanic stone Tahona wheel and a roller mill.
