Patron Spirits has launched extra Añejo Tequila, Gran Patrón Piedra, initially as a travel retail exclusive. 

The brand is being produced by the 'Tahona' process, Patron said. This involves steam-cooked agava being crushed with a large Tahona stone wheel. The resulting juice is then fermented and distilled along with the agave fibre.

John McDonnell, international president & COO of Patrón Spirits said: “Travel retail represents an important and significant sales channel for us, and we’re excited to make this exquisite spirit available first to our valued duty free partners and consumers.”

McDonnell took on the role of international president for Patron earlier this year.
