A very well-aged and smooth highland Tequila in a stunning black glass bottle.
Destiladora San Nicolas is located in Los Altos — the highlands of Jalisco Mexico. The deep red, volcanic soil and high altitude has long been considered the best climate for producing great Blue Agave. They were founded in 1996, growing quickly by producing their own San Nicolas brand of Tequilas. In 2008 they were purchased by the Campari Group. Now, nearly all production goes into Cabo Wabo and their El Espolòn line of Tequilas.
El Espolòn Extra Añejo starts like a lot of other premium Tequilas with 100% Weber Blue Agave. But then it’s aged six full years in American oak casks. This unique high-age allows the Tequila to develop extra smoothness and more of its own character. It’s truly rare to find a Tequila aged this long and this well-crafted. And it’s delivered in a stunning black glass bottle that reminds us of the obsidian volcanic glass of the desert southwest. With all of that specialness going for it — as you might imagine — this is a limited edition thing. Once each year’s release is gone... Well, it’s gone.

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Espolòn Extra Añejo Tequila and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
