Patrón and Lalique combine for Serie 2

Patrón tequila and Lalique crystal have collaborated to produce Patrón en Lalique: Serie 2.

In 2015, Patrón and Lalique released its first edition. That limited edition crystal decanter was influenced by René Lalique’s early Art Nouveau style, which he pioneered in the late 19th Century. 

Following that progression, for Patrón en Lalique: Serie 2, Lalique's master artisans have created a crystal decanter inspired by Lalique’s signature Art Déco design and avant-garde vision. Both France and Mexico share a claim to the Art Déco movement, and this bottle captures that design sensibility.

Ed Brown, president and CEO of Patrón Spirits International says: “Both Patrón and Lalique are likeminded in our steadfast dedication and commitment to quality and craftsmanship. It’s what first brought us both together two years ago to create this first-of-its-kind collaboration, and those bonds are just as strong today as we proudly introduce the second release in this groundbreaking series,”

Silvio Denz, chairman and CEO of Lalique, says, “We are proud to partner with Patrón again on this second edition. Our two brands share strong and mutual values of creativity, and artistry, both striving for uncompromising quality and excellence. Creating such an exceptional decanter is very challenging and represents countless hours of work due to the finesse of the design. Our master craftsmen put all of their savoir-faire and passion into producing each bottle, signifying their unwavering commitment to mastery and beauty.”

299 bottles of Patrón en Lalique: Serie 2 have been created, each individually numbered at Lalique’s glass factory in Wingen-sur-Moder, in Alsace, France.

The bottle is characterised by straight lines and the contrast between clear and frosted finishes, emblematic of Lalique's signature style. Its simple design was inspired by Mexico’s indigenous Weber Blue Agave plant from which tequila is produced. The decanter’s rounded crystal stopper is amber in color, to marry with the hue of the extra añejo tequila inside the bottle, and features Patrón’s  bee emblem, detailed in pure gold enamel. The bottle is presented in a display case, which rotates to reveal the bottle and stopper, making for a dramatic presentation.

For Patrón en Lalique: Serie 2, Patrón’s master distiller Francisco Alcaraz and his team created ablend of extra añejo tequilas, aged in the barrel room at the Hacienda Patrón Distillery in the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico, for an average of more than seven years. Tequila from three different types of barrels was used to create the balance of agave and oak for this release: American oak, French oak, and Spanish Sherry.
