Perfect Holiday Gifting with Patron Tequila 1-Liter Limited Edition Bottle

Do you know what is one of the most-gifted spirits during the holidays? It’s Patron tequila of course! And this year, Patron, one of the most-recognized and respected luxury spirits brands, has once again introduced a limited edition one-liter bottle. Perfect for holiday gifting, the Patron Tequila 1-Liter Limited Edition bottle, third in a series of collectible, large-size bottle designs, is inspired by Mexico’s tradition of vibrant ceramic and textile folk art. If you want to perfect the art of gift giving and holiday entertaining, gift your favorite person the Patron Tequila 1-Liter Limited Edition bottle. Give the gift that keeps on giving with 33% more Patron tequila from the 1-Liter bottle.

The brightly colored pewter bottle label on this year’s special edition release features Patron’s iconic bee design and depicts elements of Patron’s meticulous production process. It boasts renderings of the native Weber Blue Agave from which Patron is created, the razor-sharp ax used to chop the harvested agave, and the traditional “tahona” stone which crushes the cooked agave to begin the fermentation and distillation process. The Patron Tequila 1-Liter Limited Edition bottle is topped with an intricately designed metallic stopper, mirroring the detailed aesthetic of the label, and is packaged in a beautiful green gift bag, reminiscent of Patron Silver’s signature box.

“Patron is always one of the most-gifted spirits during the holidays and our limited-edition large size bottle has become something that people look forward to every year, both as a gift for someone special, and for holiday entertaining,” said Lee Applbaum, Global Chief Marketing Officer at Patron Spirits. “The distinctive label design of this year’s bottle – influenced by our rich Mexican tradition of crafting artisanal tequila – offers a truly unique gifting option for those who enjoy and appreciate high-quality luxury spirits.”

Patron has you covered when it comes to perfect holiday cocktails. This season, try the Daylight Saver (made with Patrón Silver tequila, Patron Citrónge Orange liqueur, Lillet Blanc, fresh lime, and a touch of absinthe) or the tart and refreshing Cranberry Cooler (combining Patrón Silver tequila, Patrón Citrónge Lime liqueur, cranberry juice, and club soda).

The Patron Tequila 1-Liter Limited Edition bottle is available at fine spirits and liquor retailers across the country for a steal at $59.99.
