Their entire tequila-making process takes place at Hacienda Patrón, where they only make Patrón:
And we take pride in everything about it. From our eco-friendly reverse osmosis irrigation system to the agave byproduct we recycle. And most importantly, in the people involved in making our tequila – 60 hands from beginning to end.
Patrón has developed a state-of-the-art water treatment system to reclaim clean water from their tequila production:
That water is then reused in our cooling towers and for cleaning. We’re also proud to be the first tequila distillery to install a natural gas pipeline as a main energy source, which helps reduce CO2 emissions.
Patrón is proactively funding a study with a top agricultural research center in Mexico to ensure the sustainability of the Weber Blue Agave plant for the entire industry:
We also create more than 5,500 tons of fertilizer compost a year from leftover agave fibers from our production process at the Hacienda Patrón distillery. And we take in used agave fibers, free of charge, from 10 other neighboring distilleries.
Limiting the environmental impact of tequila production is and always will be something held in the highest regard at Patrón.
