To commemorate the launch of its rare Extra Añejo 7 Años tequila, Patrón has created a replica of the drinks brand's first hand blown glass bottle using the original mold.
The release marks the first time Patrón has sold a limited-edition tequila and follows the discovery seven years ago of over 30 French oak barrels of ultra-premium Patrón tequila in the aging room at the Hacienda Patrón distillery in the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico.
The replica bottle is finished with the original Patrón glass stopper, in a further nod to the once-in-a-lifetime release.
“It’s truly exciting, and very unexpected, that we have this special opportunity to offer such an innovative and unique ultra-premium tequila,” said Ed Brown, president and chief executiveof Patrón Spirits International. “We were bestowed such good fortune with the way in which this tequila aged, and we’re proud and honored to share it.”
Fewer than 700 cases of the tequila are available.
