Gran Patron Platinum Tequila

Gran Patrón is triple distilled then aged to perfection, it is a true connoisseur’s silver tequila.

With claims of being the smoothest sipping tequila ever produced, the Patron Spirits Company’s Gran Patron Platinum Tequila is created using hand selected Weber blue agave grown in the hills of Jalisco, Mexico. The agave is pruned, steam baked, triple distilled and aged to provide a superior taste. Each 750 ml bottle is a piece of art in itself, handmade from crystal and polished, hand signed and numbered with an etched label. The bottle is surrounded by velvet, and held in a handmade, collectible level quality curly maple wood box.

Patron History: 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.

Consistent with much of the rest of the Patron line. This has a stronger agave taste than other Patron tequilas and is off the charts smooth. However, for $150+ a bottle, it needs to be more than that. Not enough flavor or character to merit such a high price tag. The crystal bottle is beautifully wrapped in a velvet bag and the maple box is a nice touch. It's more flash than substance.

A decent tequila that looks good on a shelf, but a terrible value for the price.

When i found this priced around 65$ i couldnt resist it. its very smooth indeed. But when your drinking smooth spirits like this, you want silence, serenity, and all time in the world to just explore every aspect of it. It aint tequila you shoot or drink at a full smacked bar as its very subtle and might seem to vanish like a puff of smoke compared to outer, more pungent and raw-edged blancos. But for 65$ this is a top shelf relaxation drink IMHO.

Very smooth. Very expensive. I liked it but very smooth. No bite at all. I would have it again if someone else paid for it. At $199 a bottle it's a bit expensive.

This is a good if not great tequila but for the price you could just about buy a case of an even better silver tequila. Considering that $50-$60 is usually the most expensive price for a great silver tequila the price is just simply too much. Most of the cost is because of the name. It is very smooth and has an agave taste to it. It can be sipped but is not as smooth as most reposados and anejos. By its self Gran Patron is an enjoyable tequila but if you are going to spend $200 on a bottle of tequila there are just so many more great buys out there.
