A stellar Tequila with the complexity of the finest Cognacs and Single Malts.

Germán Gonzalez is a bit of a Tequila legend. He is a great-great grandson of General Manuel Gonzalez — president of Mexico in the late 1800s. His father owned a small agave farm in Jalisco and distilled fine Tequilas. This is where Germán learned the business. When his father passed, he started making his own Tequilas — borrowing the copper pot still of a close family friend. His signature Tequila is the well-regarded T1 Tequila Añejo in five varieties. Now he has branched out into the super-premium market with his Tears of Llorona Extra Añejo Tequila

As you might guess, Tears of Llorona No. 3 Extra Añejo Tequila is the third limited release of Germán Gonzalez’s personal masterpiece. Tears of Llorona is 100% Weber Blue Agave. The agave hearts — piñas — are slow roasted in the traditional way and fermented with a proprietary yeast strain (we asked, but he’s not telling this secret). Unlike most Tequilas, 1/2 of Tears of Llorona is aged in Scotch barrels, 1/4 in Sherry casks, and 1/4 in Cognac barrels for five years. Germán was attempting to make a Tequila that rivaled the finest Cognacs and Scotches in depth and complexity. We think that he did just that.

Smartass Corner:
In Spanish, "Llorona" means "the woman who cries." Germán got the name "Tears of Llorona” by tying together the Mexican "myth of the crying woman" and the angel’s who weep that they on get a small share of the Spirit during aging.

This wicked lady has become my favorite Tequila! I love sipping on this lady, she’s smooth and sexy and single with no kids. If you know the story of La Llorona you’d get that. Great tequila hard to find.
