Tres Generaciones Añejo Tequila
Tequila Valley, Jalisco, Mexico
The 3 generations on the bottle refer to Don Cenobio, Don Eladio and Don Francisco Javier of the Sauza family of tequila makers. The agave used for this tequila comes from the valleys of Jalisco, aged 6-8 years before harvesting. This añejo is aged 12 months in toasted American oak.
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".
"This is a very timid style of añejo with subtle vegetal flavors and not much fruit. Vanilla and caramel sweetness is punctuated with hot pepper and nutmeg spice. It's a very mild sipping spirit that neither offends nor excites."
