- Calavera Tequila Anejo -
Calavera Tequila distillery is located in the heart of Mexico's premier agave growing and tequila producing region: Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico.
Calavera Tequila combines the best of old traditions with the latest technology, producing next-generation artisan tequilas. The master distiller utilizes traditional slow bake brick ovens & autoclaves to cook the blue agave hearts, and traditional mills (molinos) to extract the juices from the Agave. Calavera Tequila ferments with natural occurring yeast, and distillation takes place in old-fashioned pot stills. All water is processed through an ultra-modern system of reverse osmosis, de-ionization, and ultra violet bacteria eliminating lights, followed by two types of filtration.
Calavera Tequila Añejo is 100% pure Blue Agave, which is aged between 1-2 years. This limited edition tequila is presented in a black hand-painted bottle.
Calavera Tequila Añejo is crafted with a carefully selected mixture of 50% Highland Agave and 50% Lowland Agave. Also, half of the Agave is cooked in traditional brick ovens, and the other half is cooked in stainless steel autoclaves. Distillation takes place in pot stills, also known as “single batch slow distillation”.
Bouquet: Bold aroma of honey and vanilla with a hint of chocolate.
Palate: Bold and complex with hints of “smoked” agave , vanilla, and honey.
Finish: A long finish that’s smoky and pleasant. Intellectually satisfying.
