Tequila is mostly aged in used whiskey casks. Rosa tequila, on the other hand, is aged in more expensive used red wine barrels, giving the liquid its distinctive pinkish hue. Calirosa is all about tequila rosa, bringing together the mastery of tequileros from Jalisco, Mexico, and Californian winemakers ― hence the name. Proper traditional tequila and Californian red wine barrels make Calirosa.

The journey of Calirosa Tequila starts in the highlands of Jalisco, where the Real tequila family harvests the blue Weber agaves, known for their high sugar content. These aren't harvested until they have matured fully, which takes from 7 to 9 years ― they are only ready once the sugar content has reached at least 26%. The agave is then slowly cooked in brick ovens for 30 to 40 hours and left to rest for an additional 2 days. Then comes the natural fermentation and milling, until the liquid is finally distilled in handcrafted copper pot stills that have been in use for generations. At least 9 kilograms of agaves are needed for one liter of tequila.

It is then time to age the liquid in Californian wine barrels. The Calirosa Tequila Añejo expression spends 18 months in these barrels, imparting the spirit with vanilla, caramel, nutmeg, cinnamon, toffee, and chocolate notes. Bottled at 80 proof, this small-batch tequila is beautifully complex and a real looker.
