Cazcabel Reposado

Cazcabel tequila is distilled at an independent micro distillery in the town of Arandas, located in the highlands of the Jalisco mountains in Mexico, the heart of the designated tequila producing vicinity. The Arandas vicinity is famed for agave grown in mineral- and nutrient-high soil, producing particularly large plants complete of flavor, with an average age of around seven years old. Cazcabel’s tequila is distilled twice on a combination of copper and steel stills, which gives the spirit a clean and rounded taste. Cazcabel Reposado is matured in American oak barrels for a minimum of nine months, adding a subtle aroma of toasted oak to the spirit.

From the most famous name in the world of tequila, Jose Cuervo, this bottling is the highest point of releases from the family-run distillery. Only the finest agaves grown for more than a decade are hand chosen, roasted, and distilled. The resulting spirit is rested in casks made from French and American oak, each bringing a definite flavor to the mature tequila. These aged spirits are then expertly blended by Alex Coronado, the Cuervo Master Distiller. The consequence is an exceptionally well-made tequila designed for sipping, either neat or over ice. If you’re a whisky drinker, this expression will please you the most.

Gran Patrón Piedra Tequila

This expression from Patrón is the real boss of the tequila world. An additional añejo, the tequila has been distilled from 100 percent Blue Weber agave from the highlands of Jalisco before being aged in a combination of both American and French oak casks for more than three years. The consequence is a spirit that is designed for sipping and sits, flavorwise, somewhere between a whisky, a cognac, and, of course, tequila. One for a very special event indeed.
