The mature agaves are baked, crushed and slowly fermented. They are then double-distilled in copper pot stills, balanced to 80-proof and repeatedly filtered for purity. Aging takes place in small, 180-liter American oak barrels. Patr?n A?ejo is an incomparable masterpiece with a luxurious, satiny smooth gold body. The tequila is generously aromatic with light fruity notes. Its palate is a rich complex of caramel, citrus and spice. The finish is long and semisweet. Patr?n 100% Agave Silver Tequila is a rare and exuberant gem, loaded with the fresh aromas of lemon and white pepper. The supple body delivers on the promise of buttery sweet and peppery flavors. It is a supremely elegant blanco tequila.
