“THE WORLD’S FIRST GRAND CRU TEQUILA”
Tequila Fuenteseca Reserva presents the mastery of tequila barrel-aging using assorted wood types, storage-facility altitudes and climates, and nuanced tequila spirits in a series of limited bottlings.
Distilled in late winter with two-thirds of the expression made in a double-copper column still with plates removed to achieve a lower distillation proof and the remaining third made in an alembic pot still. One third of this lot was then laid into in American white oak previously used to age California red wine, and the remaining two-thirds was barreled in used dark French Oak. The casks were then rested for the full 11 years at 3,800' elevation in a cool-climate subterranean barrel room, with the upper-most portion of the room opened to allow for soft air circulation in order to create a drier aging environment.
