Patrón X Guillermo del Toro Tequila
Embrace your darkest (happy) hour.
Every moment, from unboxing to tasting, was created to enhance the ritual of drinking this one-of-a-kind tequila and liqueur. A deep, sweet liqueur that reveals new depths of flavor when combined with the included tequila.
The pursuit of perfection met its match when film mastermind Guillermo del Toro, a native Jaliscan, came to the Hacienda to bring his artistic approach to Patrón’s process. What came from this partnership was Patrón’s darkest product to date in both age and ideation. The signature bottle holds a perfect extra añejo tequila featuring a blend of aged tequilas averaging 5 years in used oak barrels upside down. The bottle is crowned by a skull resting on top holding an aged deep orange liqueur that perfectly complements the tequila’s symphony of dark flavors. This pairing of products reflects the pairing of film and tequila that came about through Patrón x Guillermo del Toro.
Celebrated illustrator Guy Davis collaborated with del Toro - as he has on many of the filmmaker’s projects – to create a piece of art worthy of housing the premium tequila and liqueur.
From start to finish, the entire process of creating the spirits' presentation took over a year with the first sketch occurring in March of 2015.
