This year, Cinco de Mayo falls on a Friday, which means instead of meeting up with friends for one margarita after work, you have permission to get wild. Throw a party! String up a piñata! Head to Tijuana! It’s the kind of arbitrary holiday (it’s not even celebrated in Mexico) where anything goes. Patrón Tequila is on board for the ensuing antics — and they’ve hired a live mariachi band to help pull them off.
The brand says that DeLeon Tequila is produced in the highlands of Purisima del Rincon in a village named after the Immaculate Conception. The story is that a family has tended a distillery and grown agave in the soil of a mountainous region higher than 7,500 feet above sea level. They say that agave cultivated at this altitude is sweeter, with more honey, citrus, and floral notes. The water comes from two natural spring wells that exclusively serve the family’s private distillery. And that’s all the detail we’re getting, no info on aging, barrels or the distilling process seems to be available.
DeLeon Tequila is a premium tequila in a very sexy thick glass bottle with the logo sandblasted on the front. The stunningly beautiful metal top, was hand-carved from a one-pound ball of sterling silver by famed rock and roll designer Bill Wall and remains the most familiar iconic identifier of the brand.
