Mexican tequila harvest – in pictures

I really enjoy tequila. It is my favorite distilled beverage. I prefer a better quality than Patron, but I will order Patron in a bar that doesn’t have many choices.

I thought this article was excellent!

 

Graeme Robertson went to Mexico to photograph the Patrón tequila process, from harvest to bottling.

Order of Patrón production process:

  1. Harvesting, trimming, sorting
  2. Baking/cooking
  3. Crushing (Roller mill/tahona mill)
  4. Fermentation (Roller mill/tahona mill)
  5. Distillation (Roller mill/tahona mill)
  6. Ageing, blending
  7. Bottling
