About Tapatio Tequila Añejo

It's challenging to find an añejo that retains the agave-forward taste, but this one is a prime example. The oak from the aging comes through and the agave's sweetness complements its presence.  

This is an excellent value spirit (note its one liter format) of uncompromising quality, from La Alteña Distillery, a highly-regarded NOM that also produces other worthy spirits, like El Tesoro.

This is a cult favorite that was only available in Mexico for 75 years but at long last was released to the US in 2013. 

Tasting Notes

Sweet cooked agave at the front, vanilla and juicy pear, a subtle, peppery spice and cinnamon on finish. 

Suggested Serves

  • Exceptional margaritas can be made with this excellent bottle but we'd recommend sipping for the unadulterated experience
  • Make it a Tequila Old Fashioned 

Production Notes

This is an artisanal, hand-crafted tequila, following a process used by this family for generations. 

It starts with the Tequilana Weber agave, which is grown on ranches owned by the family and harvested when between 6-8 years old.

After harvest, the agave are cleaned, prepared, and loaded into stone ovens for slow cooking. The cooked agave is then crushed, extracting the juices. Fermentation takes place in open wood vats with native wild yeast providing the alchemical kickstart that turns the juice into alcohol and imparts so many delicious flavors. Two distillations follow.  

The añejo is aged for 18 months in ex-first-fill Bourbon barrels. Bottling and hand-labeling is the final step in the production process.
