Suerte Añejo Tequila
Los Altos, Jalisco, Mexico
Suerte continues to garner acclaim for their tequilas, which are traditionally-produced at a 15,000 square-foot distillery that’s located in Atotonilco El Alto, a small town in Jalisco. For 24 months, the Suerte Añejo is rested in charred American white oak whiskey barrels, twice the minimum amount required for añejo tequila.
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".
"The Suerte approach that blends traditional distilling methods and a “progressive experience” is epitomized in their añejo, which benefits greatly from the two years it’s aged in one-pass Jack Daniels barrels. On the nose, sweet notes of maple syrup and brown sugar give way to a viscous palate with vanilla, honey and agave. The velvety finish is long and warm, offering hints of chocolate and fruit."
