An Extra Añejo made from an over a century old A-list recipe.

Many things have changed since tavern owner  Lázaro Gallardo began crafting Tequila in 1857  at Hacienda Los Camichines in the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. Not everything has, though – the Selleción Suave process he invented remains the same. What that might be, you wonder? Well, in Spanish, suave means smooth and Gallardo was the first Tequila Master Distiller to begin adding the richer, older and smoother Tequila reserves to the blend to produce one that would be smoother than them all.

The business is still family-owned today with several generations passing the know-how down to the next one – what an incredible gene pool, right! Even the bottle you’ll get today, inspired by the Art Deco style, was designed by Lázaro‘s son Luciano back in 1920.

Back in the day, Lazaro Gallardo wanted to create a special blend for his most esteemed guests and closest family members – the A-listers of the time, basically. He crafted this impressive recipe for a rare Extra Añejo that’s still used today over 150 years later. It starts with a 100% Blue weber agave Tequila, which is then aged for 4 years in new American oak. Then, it’s blended with older Tequila reserves (Remember the Suave?). Coming in a luxurious and elegant bottle, this complex beauty is one inter-generational dance of apple, pear, quince, sweet wood, maple, eucalyptus… Really, there's more layers than in a James Joyce novel.

Need a salt shaker and lime? Nah. The Mexicans take their Tequila neat and prefer to leave the lime and salt for their margaritas. Wouldn’t be a bad idea to follow suit.

Tequila goes bad with time! Once you open a bottle of Tequila, you better be in the mood to drink it. Generally, you have one to two months before oxidation and evaporation diminish the quality of the Tequila and destroy the Agave flavor profile.

Tequila labeled Gold (Oro) is your indicator (i.e., red flag) that you’re dealing with a mixto Tequila - unaged silver Tequila that has been colored and flavored with caramel to give the appearance of aged Tequila.

In general, price of Tequila goes up with age, so añejos and extra añejos will be the most expensive and blancos the cheapest.
The strongest Tequila available for sale clocks in at 75% ABV (150 proof). This shouldn’t come as a surprise, but drinking huge amounts of this spirit is likely te-quil-a.
