Patron XO Coffee Liqueur

Coffee Liqueur

It's estimated that more than 450 billion cups of coffee are consumed worldwide each year, easily making it the planet's most popular beverage. A large percentage of those cups of Joe are consumed right here in the United States. In fact, America is the largest coffee-consuming nation in the world, making super-premium Patrón XO Café Coffee Liqueur the right product at the right time. Imported by the same folks who make Patrón® 100% Blue Agave Tequila, XO Café is made in Mexico from 100% agave tequila and pure, natural essence of coffee. The 70-proof liqueur is crafted with a minimal amount of sweetener, which makes it drier and more of a coffee-flavored tequila than a typical liqueur.

Patrón XO Café is a thoroughly satisfying product that has developed a considerable following. It has a luxuriously smooth, medium-weight body and an engaging bouquet of cocoa, vanilla and freshly roasted coffee. It has a surprisingly dry palate that at once fills the mouth with the balanced flavors of coffee and mellow aged tequila. The liqueur's finish is long and memorable.

Patrón XO Café is an excellent twist on the conventional. The marriage of tequila and coffee is luscious, making the liqueur a superb ingredient in a wide array of contemporary cocktails. It is outstanding with everything from vodka and tequila to ice cream and hot chocolate. Top-shelf all the way.
