Corralejo Tequila has released a limited-edition 25th Anniversary Extra Añejo Tequila.
Only 1,600 bottles of Corralejo’s new 25th Anniversary Extra Añejo Tequila have been made, the brand has revealed. The limited edition Tequila, produced in Guanajuato, Mexico, is both a tribute to 250 years of Tequila-making tradition and 25 years of Corralejo Tequila.
Made with 100% Blue Weber agave, the 40% ABV Tequila has been hand-harvested from the Hacienda’s fields, slow-cooked in stone clay ovens for 36 hours before being fermented and double distilled in column stills and Alembic copper stills imported from Spain, using the 400-year old Charentais method pioneered by Cognac distillers in France.
The liquid was then aged for five years in Templeton rye whiskey barrels giving it a strong cooked agave flavour with notes of rye cereals and delicate sweet hints of vanilla, caramel and brown sugar. Extra Añejo Tequila is aged for over three years as a minimum making this anniversary offering, aged for five years, both a rare and premium edition.
“It is an honour to celebrate 25 years of Corralejo Tequila with such a rare and delicious liquid,” said Hacienda Corralejo owner Leonardo Rodriguez Moreno, adding: “This 25th Anniversary Extra Añejo celebrates and pays homage to the history, culture and heritage the Corralejo Tequila brand was built on, and that to this day remains within the Hacienda’s community.”
The 25th Anniversary Extra Añejo Tequila joins four other Tequilas in the Corralejo family, including: Corralejo Silver (US$21.99), Corralejo Reposado (US$25.99), Corralejo Añejo (US$32.99) and Corralejo 1821 Extra Añejo (US$129.99).
The 25th Anniversary Extra Añejo Tequila is available via select retailers for US$249.99 per bottle.
