AYATE TEQUILA ANEJO 750ml
The agave fields are located in highlands of Jalisco at an elevation of 7000 feet. The cool nights, warm days and iron rich soils provide ideal growing conditions.
Rosendo Ramirez Senior oversees the harvest and hand selects only the most pristine, mature agaves. Jimadors skillfully remove all of the green leaves down to the heart of the piñas so that only the dense, succulent, sugar-rich core remains. The agaves range in age from six to eight years old.
The agave piñas are cut into four segments using a proprietary process, then slowly steamed over an extended period of time to coax out the sweet juices.
Distillation takes place in handmade, traditional copper pot stills.
Twelve months of aging including two months in new American oak barrels, four months in used French oak barrels and finally finished for six months in our Chardonnay barrels.
Pristine, pure water is sourced from a natural spring located on our property. This water is used for production and proofing, and is of such high quality that it undergoes no filtration.
Aromatically intense with notes of caramel, butterscotch, dried fruits and toasty oak. Impressive complexity with flavors of dark chocolate, toffee, butter and sweet spices. This distinctive Añejo has a velvety soft and silky texture, full body, extraordinary finish and is best enjoyed neat in a snifter.
