Introducing Espolon Bourbon Barrel-Finished Anejo

Espolòn Tequila have announced the release of their new Añejo expression. Master Distiller Cirilo Oropeza has taken his beloved Espolòn Tequila and created a traditional Añejo with an Espolòn twist. Using a technique pioneered by Oropeza himself, the first of its kind in Mexico, this innovative process takes white oak-aged tequila and finishes it for two to three months in heavily charred American bourbon barrels allowing the liquid to take on the complex, rich flavour for which bourbon whiskey is famous.

"Our award-winning tequilas of Espolòn stand as a testament to Cirilo's pioneering spirit, commitment to his art and a promise to never give up on his dreams," says Kathleen Schuart, Senior Marketing Director White Spirits & Cordials, Campari America. "Cirilo doesn't produce tequila. He creates it. Espolòn Añejo Bourbon Barrel Finish is the result of his passion for the art of tequila making and we are excited to finally share it with American tequila aficionados. We love it in distinctive cocktails, but a liquid with a finish this smooth and rich deserves to be sipped."
