Lunazul Primero Tequila
Lunazul Tequila // Tequila Valley, Jalisco, Mexico
Lunazul Primero is a 100% agave tequila produced at Tierra de Agaves Distillery. The agave, which has a pedigree dating back to 1758, is estate grown right outside of the town of Tequila in Jalisco. The agaves are harvested at seven to nine years and then cooked for a day before being shredded to extract the juices. After being fermented with a yeast unique to Lunazul, this tequila is double distilled in small batches then aged for 18 months in ex-bourbon, American white oak barrels. It then goes through a filtration process eight times that removes the color making this an "añejo claro."
Tequila AñejoDistilled 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".
