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:
- Harvesting, trimming, sorting
- Crushing (Roller mill/tahona mill)
- Fermentation (Roller mill/tahona mill)
- Distillation (Roller mill/tahona mill)
- Ageing, blending
