Oscar-nominated Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro has joined with Patrón tequila for a special bottling of two spirits.

Guillermo del Toro is best known for having written and directed hit films like Pan’s Labyrinth and Pacific Rim. Patrón is surely the world’s best-recognized tequila brand. Both hailing from Jalisco, Mexico, it perhaps makes sense the two have joined forces to produce a dazzlingly packaged, limited-edition two-bottle set that will beguile from your bar cart.

The set comprises a 750 ml bottle of extra añejo tequila plus a 100 ml bottle of aged orange-flavored liqueur.
The tequila is a blend of rare Patrón tequilas aged for an average of more than five years in a combination of different new and used oak barrels. The orange liqueur is produced from aged Patrón tequila and is the first liqueur of its kind for the brand. We say: Sip them neat, or get some good limes and make yourself a seriously luxurious margarita.

The set is available in better liquor stores across the country, starting July 17. And even if you don’t have $399 (the set’s MSRP) to blow on booze, the promotional video, below, is as much a must-watch as any of del Toro’s films.

Volcanic Iceland Epic Trip

meet our Local Insider

2 years.


It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
