Barrique de Ponciano Porfidio derives its name in part from the way it is made: by law añejo tequilas are aged at least one year, but “Barrique” añejos are aged for 10 years, until peak maturity, in small, 100-liter French Limousin oak barrels (called barriques), the same as are used for ageing fine wine.

The longer aging contributes to “Barrique’s” dark amber-gold color and powerful, cognan-like intensity, while the Limousin barriques impart subtle oak flavors. Barrique de Ponciano Porfidio is 100% Blue Agave, an indication of the highest quality, the distinctive aroma of which reveals itself in the lingering, full finish.

Porfidio, long known for its outstanding packaging, has created a tall, thin, clear glass bottle which seizes one’s attention and which will doubtless become a collector’s item. The delicate appearance of the 17-inch high, one-liter bottle, with a small mouth and clear, free-standing, hollow cactus inside, is deceptive: it is made from the same glass used for laboratory beakers, making it very strong. 21-karat Gold lettering and a stylized sun painted on the glass constitute the label.
