Patron Tequila and French glassmaker Lalique have come together to introduce an exclusive collaboration: Patron en Lalique: Serie 1.
Patrón en Lalique: Serie 1 is a limited-edition crystal decanter handmade by Lalique’s master artisans. The bottle’s design was inspired by the Weber Blue Agave plant, from which tequila is produced. The amber crystal bottle stopper has been shaped to represent the heart of the agave, the piña. The decanter showcases Lalique’s signature technique of contrasting clear and frosted crystal finishes to showcase its perfect detail and enhance the amber colour of the tequila.
“At Patrón, crafting the world’s finest tequila is an art,” said Ed Brown, president and CEO of Patrón Spirits International. “This unwavering dedication to our passion inspired us to find other artists committed to their specific crafts, which led us to Lalique.”
Silvio Denz, chairman and CEO of Lalique, added: “It is the first time Lalique has worked with a tequila brand and we are proud to partner with Patrón. Our two brands share strong and mutual values of creativity, craftsmanship and artistry, both striving for uncompromising quality and excellence.”
The liquor inside the bottle is a blend of the oldest and rarest Patrón tequilas. The extra añejo tequila is aged for at least four years in a combination of new American oak and new and used French oak barrels to achieve the right balance of agave and oak notes.
This special series is limited to 500 bottles worldwide and just one bottle will be made available in Australia.
Anyone interested in being the Australian owner of this bottle will have to get in touch with Patrón directly to make the purchase – firstname.lastname@example.org.
