The Patrón Spirit Company was founded in Mexico in 1989. Since then, the world of tequila has never been the same. While the company has branched out into other spirits – rum, vodka, and liqueurs – it is most well-known for its tequilas. Patrón tequilas were the first ultra-premium tequilas on the market and continue to be one of the best-selling brands in the USA. Made in small batches with care, this brand just keeps getting stronger.
Founded in 1989, the Patrón Spirits Company was the brainchild of John Paul Dejoria and Martin Crowley. This is when the men bought the rights to Patrón Tequila from Casa 7 Lenguas, which was one of the oldest distilleries in Mexico.
Patrón began by launching its line of ultra-premium tequilas in their beautiful square glass bottles. Making 100% Blue Weber agave tequila at a time when many tequilas on the market were mixed helped to cement the brand as a new force in the market.
The agave plants used for Patrón are sourced from outside of the company. This allows only the best products to be chosen and processed into tequila. About eight families are responsible for providing the majority of the agave plants used by Patrón.
Bacardi Limited bought the Patrón Spirits Company in 2018, welcoming the brand into its portfolio of innovative products.
While the company started out crafting tequila, it has steadily added to its portfolio over the years, now offering high-quality vodka, rum, tequila, and liqueurs in a variety of flavours and ages.
The Patrón Spirits Company is very environmentally conscious. It reclaims and recycles water, has reduced emissions, is actively working towards sustainability of its agave supply, and uses the leftover agave fibres to create compost.
