Embajador is a Jalisco Highlands distillery located in Atotonilco. They use locally grown agave matured at 8-10 years before harvest. A combination of traditional (adobe oven) and modern (shredders, column still) methods are used to produce the distillate. The Supreme (añejo) is aged 18 months in a combination of American (ex-bourbon) and French (ex-Cognac) oak.

Tasting Notes

"Toasty, warm flavors or dulce de leche, milk covered espresso bean and campfire oak melt into stewed agave and fruit compote. A sprinkle of baking spices and creamy vanilla add a layer of richness, though it finishes pleasantly earthy and dry. "
