PATRON GRAND PIEDRA – 750ML
For Gran Patrón Piedra, it all starts with 100% Weber Blue agave grown in the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico, of which only the best are selected for this, Gran Patrón Platinum and Gran Patrón Burdeos. The agave is slowly steam-cooked before being crushed with a two-ton Tahona. The Tahona is a traditional method that utilizes a two-ton volcanic stone wheel to extract the sugary juice from the agave, which is then fermented, distilled, and aged in barrels. Piedra, which means “stone” in Spanish, is created entirely from the traditional Tahona process – a process that few tequilas are made with anymore. After distillation, the tequila is then aged for three years in new American and French oak barrels before being bottled at 80 proof.
Deep mahogany color, and sweet, smooth aroma of fruit, fresh mushroom, light citrus, and toasted French oak. The taste is sweet, yet rich and complex, combining an herbaceous agave flavor with light vanilla, and fresh mushroom. The finish is long-lasting and remarkably smooth. Its complex flavor profile, distinct oak taste, and remarkably smooth finish truly sets Gran Patrón Piedra apart in the ultra-premium tequila category.
