Patrón Tequila has launched Patrón El Cielo, a category first made using Patrón’s Silver tequila with a fourth distillation.

Master distiller David Rodriguez said the tequila was made with Weber Blue agave, water and yeast, and crafted in small batches to ensure consistency and quality using small copper pots stills.

“For the first-time ever, we developed a prestige tequila with a fourth distillation—a process that is extremely rare within the industry—using the smallest copper pot still at Hacienda Patrón.

“While adding another stage of distillation is commonly misconceived as a culprit for diluting flavour, that was not the case for Patrón El Cielo,” said Rodriguez.

Patrón El Cielo is sweet with citrus notes, resulting from more than 150 tasting sessions during development.

Patrón El Cielo is packaged in a sleek glass bottle outfitted with gold designs inspired by the volcanic tahona stone used to produce Patrón Tequila, with other elements inspired by the agave fields and light found in the Jalisco Highlands of Mexico.

Patrón El Cielo is available at Dan Murphy’s and Vintage Cellars Australia-wide now for RRP $300.00
