"Only 1,600 bottles of Corralejo’s new 25th Anniversary Extra Añejo Tequila have been made, the brand has revealed. The limited edition Tequila, produced in Guanajuato, Mexico, is both a tribute to 250 years of Tequila-making tradition and 25 years of Corralejo Tequila.
Made with 100% Blue Weber agave, the 40% ABV Tequila has been hand-harvested from the Hacienda’s fields, slow-cooked in stone clay ovens for 36 hours before being fermented and double distilled in column stills and Alembic copper stills imported from Spain, using the 400-year old Charentais method pioneered by Cognac distillers in France.
The liquid was then aged for five years in Templeton rye whiskey barrels giving it a strong cooked agave flavour with notes of rye cereals and delicate sweet hints of vanilla, caramel and brown sugar. Extra Añejo Tequila is aged for over three years as a minimum making this anniversary offering, aged for five years, both a rare and premium edition."
