Distilleries leading the way in sustainability

Patrón Tequila Hacienda, Mexico

Sustainability is also important for Patrón Tequila, which commits to an eco-friendly agricultural process. The distillery composts 100% of its leftover agave fibres from distillation. Patrón has also developed a water treatment system to reclaim clean water from the Tequila production and process this by-product.

Patrón was also the first Tequila distillery to install a natural gas pipeline as its main energy source, which reduces carbon dioxide emissions and helps air quality.
