“A lavish Añejo that is the perfect companion to luxury chocolate.”
The aged version of an iconic brand. Used in topbars around the world.
Widely regarded as the ultimate valley tequila, this Arette Añejo is a perfect mariage of barrel and agave.
Golden yellow. Flowers, mostly violets are evident. Citrus; lemon and orange are other aromas. Elements of mint, not so much oak but rather the character from its raw material which is typical for this tequila producer. Opens softly and sweet, with orange and hints of oak. Relatively long finish with black pepper and citrus.
Best severed as a digestive slightly below room temperature in a tequila glass from Riedel. It is a perfect match with chocolate in general, and semi-dark chocolate with orange flavour in specific.
The agave used in the production of this tequila is exclusively cultivated in fields of the outskirts of the Tequila town (most other tequilas available on the European market are either made of agave from several towns within Jalisco, especially around Los Altos). This agave has a relatively high fibre content and low water content, which often adds aromas of citrus and herbs. The agave is cooked in a pressure cooker, which enhance aromas from the raw agave. It has been aged for eighteen months in barrels previously used for aging bourbon and whiskey.
