The original Patron Tequila was produced by Tequila Siete Leguas, and brand rights were sold to St. Maarten Spirits, owners John Paul DeJoria (Paul Mitchell Hair Products) and Martin Crowley in 1989. As the brand grew, Tequila Siete Leguas was no longer able to keep up with production, and Patron built a new distillery and moved all production in 2002.
Like all Patron tequilas, Gran Patron Platinum Tequila is produced from the highest-quality Weber blue agave plants grown in the Highlands of Jalisco. The agaves for this distinct tequila are hand selected for their high sugar content. The tequila is triple distilled and then rested in oak tanks for a short time, making it extraordinarily smooth and full-bodied. Gran Patron Platinum Tequila has notes of citrus and a light oak finish. Every etched label bottle is a handcrafted crystal (lead free) piece of art that is hand polished and numbered. The bottle is packaged in an elegant black presentation case.
