New Heights With El Alto
PATRÓN makes their spirit on the path less traveled [by most brands] which is impressively rare in the industry and innovative. EL ALTO is created using a method that requires meticulous precision and time. The traditional Tahonas production process uses a two-ton volcanic stone to crush the baked agave which creates a tequila with natural sweetness and flavors of the earth.
David Rodriguez, PATRÓN Master Distiller states, “PATRÓN EL ALTO stays true to PATRÓN Tequila’s traditional roots in distilling while innovating in a way that achieves the best blended, aged tequila profile possible. The tequilas that harmoniously come together in PATRÓN EL ALTO are a result of selecting the finest 100% Weber Blue Agave in the highest parts of Jalisco, Mexico, a territory known for producing the sweetest agaves, which gives PATRÓN EL ALTO its incredibly smooth and sweet taste. We took four years to focus on only the best of the best and perfect the bold, sweet flavors of this expression the right way: naturally.”
EL ALTO is crafted with Extra Añejo and blended with Añejo and Reposado tequilas each aged to their maximum potential. In this bottle is four years of craftsmanship, ingenuity, and artistry, put together by Rodriguez and his team of talented distilling artisans. After engaging in over 300 tastings, they masterfully cultivated exceptional flavor. This exquisite spirit is naturally smooth with subtle notes of figs, honey, caramel, dried fruit, and vanilla.
