Louie Bossi’s Patrón Reposado tequila is the most trending choice of beverage in Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton restaurants. According to SouthFlorida.com, Sommelier Ervin Machado, alongside Patrón master distiller Francisco Alcaraz and Patron microbiologist Mariana Sanchez, spent 11 months creating it.
Just the facts!
- The tequila was made in Oaxaca and Jalisco, Mexico.
- Machado spent three weeks in the factory, testing multiple batches to achieve the flavors he was imagining.
- He caramelized blue agave to give it a sweet flavor before churning it over riverbed rocks, rather than shredding it.
- The riverbed method squeezes the agave and doesn’t bruise it.
- The tequila was aged for 180 days in a French oak barrel rather than in an American or Hungarian oak.
- Machado says the Limousin French barrel they used is longer and darker than American and Hungarian barrels, so it adds much color to the tequila in a short amount of time.
- Machado made one barrel, or about 252 bottles of this Patrón tequila, only to be sold at Louie Bossi’s Ristorante.
It’s now served to enjoy on the rocks and in the reposado margaritas at both locations!
