Patrón en Lalique: Serie 3 tells the story of where Patón Tequila is sourced and crafted and falls in line with the timeless theme of nature.
For this release, Patón says their Master Distiller David Rodriguez and his team masterfully curated a blend of extra añejo tequilas that is so rare, it can never be replicated. 14 different tequilas each aged for up to 8 years in French and American oak casks were hand-selected and combined to create Patón en Lalique: Serie 3.
Patrón says the liquid is marked by its crystalline color and sweet and smooth taste featuring hints of spices, dried fruits, sherry wine, and intense wood.
The coveted Patrón en Lalique series started in 2015 with the release of Serie 1, which was inspired by the Patrón bottle design. Following the success of the first release, in 2017, Serie 2 was unveiled and represented Lalique’s signature Art Deco design, as both Mexico and France share a claim of the early Art Deco movement.
