Calle 23 master distiller Sophie Decobecq is one of the few women operating in Mexico in a very male-dominated industry. The concept is to make "smart tequila" that's sourced from the Jalisco Highlands (Los Altos) and made with a careful selection of yeasts and traditional ingenuity. This añejo is double-distilled in stainless steel pot-stills and matured 16 months in ex-bourbon casks.

    Distilled from 100% blue Weber agave, it is aged for at least a year in barrels not to exceed 600 liters. Any type of wood is acceptable, but ex-bourbon barrels are most common. Añejo tequilas are also known as "aged" or "extra aged".

Tasting Notes

"This is one of those dessert-like añejos. It's super creamy, chocolatey and rich. It's almost like drinking a caramel flan in chocolate sauce that's been sprinkled with a hit of freshly grated cinnamon. There is still some agave fruit shining through, though it's more of a baked, roasty flavor than the younger expressions. If you like a sweet añejo, this is for you."
