Cava de Oro Tequila Extra Añejo
Tequila Extra Añejo
Cava de Oro // Jalisco, Mexico
The blue weber agave used to produce Gran Cava de Oro Tequila Extra Añejo are harvested at 7 to 10 years, from both the Los Altos and Tequila Valley regions of Jalisco. It's produced at Tequila Puerta de Hierro Distillery (NOM 1477) under the direction of Maetro Tequilero Gildardo Partida Melendrez, who uses traditional pot stills for the spirit's double-distillation. Instead of using ex-bourbon American oak barrels for aging, the distillery uses ex-red wine French oak barrels, where this extra añejo spends 5 years maturing. Bottled at 38% ABV, it is only available in Mexico and exported to the US and Canada under the "Gran Cava de Oro" brand.
Tequila Extra AñejoDistilled from 100% blue Weber agave, it is aged for at least 3 years in barrels not to exceed 600 liters. Any type of wood is acceptable, although ex-bourbon barrels are most common. Extra Añejo tequilas are also known as "ultra aged".
