The blue weber agaves used to produce Gran Cava de Oro Tequila Extra Anejo are harvested at 7 to 10 years, from both the Los Altos and Tequila Valley regions of Jalisco. It is produced at Tequila Puerta de Hierro Distillery (NOM 1477) under the direction of Master Tequila Distiller Gildardo Partida Melendrez, who uses traditional pot stills for the spirit's double-distillation. Instead of using the familiar ex-bourbon American oak barrels for aging, the distillery utilizes ex-red wine French oak barrels, where this extra anejo spends 5 years maturing. Best in Show winner, 2012 Spirits of Mexico competition. To be sipped neat or on the rocks.
tequila extra anejo
Our extra aNejo offering is aged five years versus the typical three year minimum. This extra aging imbues this exceptional tequila with dark amber color and a complexity on the nose, including cinnamon, caramel, vanilla and nutmeg. It begins smooth, rich with a hint of oak, but then gives way to a delicious range of, sweet cinnamon and maple. It's finish lingers delicately on the palate.
