Patrón Añejo is a blend of two very differently produced triple distilled 100% agave tequilas - one made using a traditional Tahona and fermented with agave fibres, the other made using a modern roller shredder.
The blend is then aged in in French Limousin, French Allier oak, ex-bourbon barrels, new American oak and Hungarian oak casks for 12-15 months prior to bottling in hand-blown individually numbered bottles.
