DeLeón Añejo Tequila is a full-bodied tequila is made from DeLeón's finest 100% Highland Blue Weber agave sourced from the rich earth of the Los Altos region of Jalisco. Each plant is hand-selected at harvest for ripeness to deliver the sweetest piñas. Once selected, the agave is slow roasted in uniform pieces in traditional brick and clay ovens. Combined with slow fermentation, the liquid develops rich depth and complexity, creating a remarkably nuanced character.
With relentless attention to detail, DeLeón's master distiller artfully cuts the beginning and end of the distillation, allowing only the absolute best portion, or corazon, to find its way into every bottle. The liquid is artfully aged first in bold American oak barrels and finished in French Sauternes wine casks to impart a distinctive, balanced character, taking the final product to the next level. The result is a full-bodied tequila with notes of rich vanilla, caramel, sweet oak and subtle dried fruit.
