Guillermo Del Toro X Patrón Tequila

Oct 3, 2017

Category: Vices

Guillermo Del Toro – the Oscar-nominated director of films such as Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy, and this year’s The Shape of Water – is well known both for his dedication to the macabre and his uncompromisingly vast imagination. And it is these very qualities which Patrón sought out when they tapped the Jalisco-born visionary for a collaboration tequila and liqueur kit named after the man himself.

The striking packaging, which was designed and pored over by Del Toro, is meant to look like an intricately carved shrine paying homage to tequila as a representation of the circle of life, death, and rebirth. It even comes with a pair of votive candles meant to be used in the ritual surrounding the enjoyment of the two included unique spirits. The bottles themselves resemble a skull and skeletal torso – the former containing a 35% ABV deep and sweet liqueur and the latter a 40% ABV bright aged tequila, intended to be enjoyed together. For fans of the Mexican-born director and singular alcoholic beverages, this $399 kit is as good as it gets.
