Duke Grand Cru Extra Anejo Founder's Reserve Tequila
40% ABV, 750 ml
Crafted with estate-grown agaves from the highlands of Jalisco, this ultra-premium tequila pays tribute to the legendary John Wayne. A blend of 3 to 5-year-old tequilas, it's finished in 3rd use French Grand Cru wine barrels.
"The Duke wasn't only passionate about bourbon ― tequila was just as dear to him. This is how the Duke Grand Cru Tequila came to be. It's a threesome of premium single-estate tequilas that are crafted in the Jalisco highlands. The traditionally crafted spirits are made with hand-selected agave piñas that are grown on a single estate. The spirit is then distilled in small copper pot stills, before being aged. Aged 3 years, Duke Extra Añejo Tequila Founder's Reserve is a blend of 3 and 5-year-old tequilas. After its initial maturation in American oak whiskey casks, it's transferred into 3rd use French Grand Cru wine barrels for a round of finishing before being bottled at 80 proof."
