Tequila Matchmakers have officially verified PATRÓN Tequila as an additive-free spirit.
While many brands claim to be additive-free, PATRÓN Tequila is verified by the Tasting Panel as 100% naturally produced. The annual process to ensure products are additive-free is extensive. They must go through distillery and production audits, lab tests, and sensorial tasting. PATRÓN Tequila was honored for its distillation process, where they only use high-quality ingredients with nothing added to alter the smell, color, or taste to the profile.
Tequila Matchmakers is an independent app and website that 79,000 tequila aficionados around the world utilize. The founders, who live in the heart of Mexico’s Tequila region, have undergone extensive training in tequila tasting. According to Mexico’s Tequila Regulatory Council, companies don’t need to legally disclose any additives to the spirit provided that they don’t exceed one percent of the product’s total volume. These additives can include food coloring, oak extracts, or glycerine. Consumers have a right to know exactly what they are putting into their bodies. Additives allow makers to produce tequila at a faster rate, without having to pay attention to detail. PATRÓN has been recognized to not cut corners and is one of the few brands that dedicated it’s time to a natural and handcrafted production process.
To ensure consumers are getting the best of the best, PATRÓN Tequila hand-harvest the best 100 percent Weber Blue Agave. This agave is used specifically for its high-sugar content which results in a smooth flavor of tequila. Every ounce of PATRÓN Tequila is aged in handmade barrels and sourced from around the world. For PATRÓN Resposado, the aging process is two years whereas Añejo 10 Años is aged for 10 years. PATRÓN can proudly announce that the addictive-free verification is a testament to their production and dedication.
“At the heart of the PATRÓN process is a devotion to purity of spirit,” said Antonio Rodriguez, Director of Production at PATRÓN Tequila. “The result was our time-honored, original, additive-free recipe that has always been handcrafted with the wellness of the community in mind from the very beginning.”
