Dark amber. Elegant tequila with notes of peach and citrus, vanilla and coffee. Hints of sherry, anis and smoke can also be found. It opens with almond and chocolate that spreads in the mouth and finishes off slightly salty. It´s fine balance meets the high expectations with ease. The greatest thing about Arette Gran Clase is the interplay between aromas and taste. It is aged for more than three years which is considered by many to give the perfect balance between the cask and agave.

cocktail It is best served as an exclusive avec slightly below room temperature in a Riedel tequila glass, preferably with orangettes (chocolate‐coated dried orange peel).

Production details
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.
