Tequila Silver represents the iconic label of the renowned Patrol distillery, a real institution for fans of Mexican distillates. The extraordinary quality of this distillate derives from an exceptional raw material. The heart of the whole production process is made up of the precious Weber Blue Agave, grown in the renowned Mexican region of Jalisco, considered one of the best for distillation processes.
Tequila is made by distilling a specific variety of agave, the agave azul, or blue agave in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, Mexico. The agave is still grown in the traditional way, with the plants reaching an average weight of 70 or 110 kg. After “cutting” the leaves, the piña, the juiciest inner part, is cooked slowly to allow the compound sugars to become simple sugars suitable for fermentation, and then everything is ground in order to extract a very sugary agave juice. This juice will then be left to ferment in order to obtain a must with a low alcohol content full of aromas and flavours; this will be the basis of the final product, which will then be distilled. After that, the product can be aged or not: if the tequila is bottled and sold immediately, it will be almost transparent in color and will have the wording “plata” or “silver”, otherwise with the wording Reposado.
Transparent and crystalline. Delicate and subtle aromas are distinguished on the nose that evoke the freshness of citrus fruits, the sweetness of white-fleshed fruit and light vegetal nuances of freshly cut agave. When tasted, there is a soft, warm and enveloping entrance, with extremely refined aromas and a persistent finish that offers an extraordinary gustatory harmony.
Perfect at the end of a meal or as a meditation; particularly recommended for tequila lovers or perfect for creating very special signature cocktails. To try!
