The history of Arette dates back into the early 1900s when the Orendain family began distilling in the small town of Tequila, Mexico. Located near Guadalajara, the El Llano distillery is one of the oldest in the region, nestled right in the shadow of the Tequila volcano. Even since before the brand's inception in 1986, it has been run by Eduardo and Jaime Orendain, fifth-generation tequila makers from one of the most renowned families in the industry. "Arete" was the name of the horse that won several Olympic medals in jumping ― its rider Humberto Mariles being the first and only gold medalist in the discipline to come out of Mexico.
All Arette's tequila has followed traditional methods to this day and is made from blue agaves off their own estate and water from the nearby volcanic springs. The Arette Gran Clase Extra Añejo being a longer-matured spirit at a minimum of 4 years, you can expect a particularly rich as well as smooth tequila with prominent cooked agave aromas accompanied by spicy oak notes as well as fresh fruit and roses. There is even more fruit and sweetness on the palate with grapes and peaches, as well as some licorice and aniseed, culminating in a particularly long and warming finish. The Orendain family strives for putting quality before quantity, meaning each bottle is numbered.
