“An exciting lowland tequila with flashes towards the highlands and bourbon.”
A tequila with very notable hints of bourbon obtained by a meticulous selection of ex bourbon barrels.
Don Anselmo añejo has a very specific aging process, which brings the flavour of this añejo very close to a quality bourbon. But you can still of course find those tequila flavours that you long for.
Amber colored, brilliant, clear and transparent with copper reflections. A sweet aroma of caramel accompanied by toasted almonds, chocolate, vanilla and a light touch of sweet cooked agave. Soft dried fruits, vanilla, and a light touch of chocolate. Medium soft, full-bodied tequila with long drainage in legs.
It is best served as a digestive in a Riedel tequila glass or with dark chocolate combined with nuts or almonds. It is the perfect base spirit in a luxurious Gran Margarita.
Destiladora de Agave Azul grow their lowland agave close to their distillery in San Juanito de Escobedo on “the other side” of the Tequila volcano. Tequila from Destiladora Agave de Azul does not have the citric notes you often find in lowland tequila, rather you will find sweetness as in the highland tequilas. The agaves are cooked in a pressure-cooker and the distillation is done twice in stainless steel pot stills. The tequila is then aged 18 months in American white oak cask previously holding bourbon.
