Roca Patrón Tequila Añejo is produced entirely from the labor intensive, centuries old tahona process.
The Roca Patrón line of tequilas are sweeter, earthier and more vegetal – with distinctive notes of roasted agave – than other Patrón varietals, exhibiting more complexity and slightly less citrus, pepper and fruit. The aged variants are rested in single-‐use American bourbon barrels – Roca Patrón Reposado for five months, Roca Patrón Añejo for 14 months; this differs from the core Patrón line, which are aged in a blend of new and used oak barrels. Through extensive experimentation and tasting, the Patrón master distiller team determined that the ideal flavor characteristics of Roca Patrón Silver came through at 45 percent alcohol (90 proof). Similarly, Roca Patron Reposado is optimal at 84 proof, and Roca Patrón Añejo at 88 proof.
