Luxury tequila by Patrón and Lalique.
Mexican tequila and French crystal come to life in this luxurious limited-edition liquor bottle, Patrón en Lalique: Serie 1.
Patrón tequila has teamed up with historic crystal makers Lalique, a timeless symbol of French luxury, to produce a limited edition of this extra-aged blend. This association marks the first time that Lalique has collaborated with a tequila brand, and the first time that Patrón has joined forces with a crystal maker to reimagine the iconic Patrón tequila bottle. Resulting in only 500 units available worldwide, this exclusive first-time collaboration celebrates both brands’ artistry and long-standing craftsmanship.
The exquisite handmade crystal decanter designed by Lalique’s artisans, draws inspiration from Mexico’s indigenous Weber Blue Agave plant, from which tequila is produced. Its detailed amber crystal bottle stopper is perfectly 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.
Inside each of these stunning bottles of Patrón en Lalique: Serie 1 is an exceptional blend of the oldest and rarest Patrón tequilas, hand-selected from Patrón’s barrel aging room at the Hacienda Patrón distillery in the hills of Jalisco, Mexico. The extra añejo tequila is aged for at least four years in a combination of American and French oak barrels to achieve the right balance of agave and oak notes.
“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.”
For almost 100 years, Lalique creations have been produced at the Lalique factory in Wingen-sur-Moder, in Alsace, France. Since it was founded, in 1888, Lalique has constantly worked on the perfection of its crystal-making techniques, mixing old traditions with more modern technology used to blow, press, fashion, cut, engrave, polish and sign it’s pieces.
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.”
Each Patrón en Lalique: Serie 1 bottle, which comes within a handmade leather display case adorned with a gemstone detail, will retail for US $7,500 at fine spirits retailers and in select duty free stores across the world.
