What is Añejo/Aged Tequila?
Añejo (Aged): Until recently, añejo was the brass ring of the tequila merry-go-round. It sat atop the heap as the most carefully and patiently crafted of tequilas. Añejos are aged from one to three years in oak barrels. And distillers tend to lavish their most careful attention on this premium product. In fact, añjejos must be aged in relatively small barrels – just 600 liters. For true lovers of tequila, this is where the most complex and interesting flavors can be found. Añejos are rarely used for margaritas or shots… this is true sipping tequila.
