Rooted in tradition and forged in the fire of innovation, this Añejo spent 18 months in Cabernet Sauvignon barrels.

Petro Kostiv is a seasoned entrepreneur with several global projects under his belt. Saul Perez Ocampo is a Master Distiller and Kostiv's long-time buddy. When the former gave Kostiv a bottle of Tequila as a gift, a new passion blossomed. We can't blame him, the Mexican Spirit is an intoxicating one! One thing led to another and several visits to Jalisco later the pair decided to form a partnership. The goal? Bringing proper Artisanal Tequila ― and with it, Mexican culture ― to the world, working with several charity organizations along the way.

The production process takes place in Amatitan, Jalisco, where the lowland agaves get the traditional Tequila treatment. Roasting the piñas in brick ovens, crushing in roller mills, open-air fermentation in wooden vats, double distillation in copper-pot stills ― the whole shebang. It's the only way to craft a proper Tequila and these guys know it! It's after the distillation that things get interesting, as they've opted to age their Spirits in used Wine barrels. The Añejo has spent 18 months in hand-charred French barrels that used to hold Cabernet Sauvignon.

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 oxidization and evaporation diminish the Tequila quality and destroy the Agave flavor profile.
Tequila is like Champagne or Cognac. It has a Denomination of Origin, meaning it can only be produced in the Jalisco State, Mexico.
There are over 136 species of Agave. For Tequila to be officially called “Tequila,” it must be comprised of at least 51% of the Blue Weber Agave species.

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.
Tequila is made from one type of agave, Blue agave. Each of these plants takes at least 6 years, more likely a year or two longer to mature.
