ATOTONILCO, Jalisco, Mexico – Patrón Spirits introduces a new addition to the successful Patrón Citrónge liqueur portfolio. Patrón Citrónge Mango, available starting in June 2015, is crafted from the highest-quality Ataulfo mangos from the Mexican states of Nayarit and Chiapas. “Not only is Mexico known for tequila, the country has long been one of the world’s largest producers of top-quality fruits and citrus. Maybe it’s no coincidence then that fresh fruit flavors are the perfect complement in margaritas and countless other tequila cocktails,” said Ed Brown, President and CEO of Patrón Spirits. “All three of our Patrón Citrónge liqueurs – Orange, Lime, and now Mango – not only are ideal ingredients in any number of delicious cocktails and food recipes, they also proudly showcase authentic Mexican flavor and heritage.”
Increasingly popular in cuisine and cocktails, the Ataulfo mango used to create Patrón Citrónge Mango is characterized by its oblong shape, bright yellow skin, nonfibrous flesh, and rich, sweet flavor. The refreshing mango taste is smooth and sweet with light citrus notes and a hint of pineapple and peach. Patrón Citrónge Mango Liqueur is crystal clear with a natural, sweet aroma. It’s excellent mixed into any number of cocktails,or as a delicious addition to sauces and desserts.
The cork-finished frosted bottle, available in 375ml, 750ml and 1 liter sizes, was designed to align with the Patrón Citrónge Orange and Patrón Citrónge Lime liqueur bottles. The package communicates Patrón’s upscale, ultra-premium position, and the extended neck on the bottle makes it simple and easy to pour.
Every step in producing Patrón tequila – from harvesting the highest-quality 100 percent Weber Blue Agave, to the traditional, time-honored distillation process and individual labeling, numbering, and inspection of each bottle – is done with the careful precision and care that can only be accomplished by hand. Though Patrón has grown to
become one of the most-recognized and respected luxury spirits brands in the world, it is still exclusively produced in the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico in the same small batches and with the same commitment to quality and craftsmanship.
