Made from agaves grown at over 5000' and distilled in stainless pot stills, the añejo is aged in French oak for a minimum of one year. The distinctive bottle is lapis-colored in a truncated, pyramidal shape. (Note that the name has changed from Lapiz to Lapis over the years.)

  • Tequila Añejo
    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

"There's a slight woodiness, coupled with roasty agave and modest vanilla on the nose. More-developed wood carries over onto the palate where it's joined by a pleasantly nutty bitterness reminiscent of roasted walnuts. A touch of heat here is mitigated by a pleasant creaminess and sweetened by modest vanilla. The finish introduces a suppressed spiciness--just enough to keep it grippy to the end."
