Patrón tequila and Lalique crystal have partnered for an ultra-luxe collaboration that combines two of our favorite things: quality spirits and fine design.
Patrón en Lalique: Serie 1 is a limited-edition crystal decanter handmade by Lalique’s master artisans, filled with a 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 design of the bottle was inspired by Mexico’s indigenous Weber Blue Agave plant– the 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 unique amber color of the tequila.
The liquor inside is similarly unique. 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.
The partnership, the latest extension of Patrón’s “Art of Patrón” platform (a unique collection of experiences that reflects artists’ uncompromising commitment to their craft), marks the first time that Lalique has collaborated with a tequila brand, and the first time that Patrón has joined with a crystal maker to reimagine the iconic Patrón tequila bottle.
Each of the 500 individually numbered and hand-polished bottles are placed inside a handmade leather display case elegantly adorned with gemstone detail. A leather-bound book and video that documents the historic collaboration are also included.
The price? A cool $7,500.
We’re putting it on our Christmas list, just in case anyone is feeling generous.
