About Cincoro Añejo Tequila
Cinco Spirits Group is named after the five partners connected by a mutual love for two things: tequila and basketball. Founded by Jeanie Buss, Wes Edens, Emilia Fazzalari, Wyc Grousbeck and Michael Jordan, Cinco Spirits (coincidentally the same number as players on a basketball team) currently has four tequilas in their lineup—a Blanco, a Reposado aged 8 to 10 months, an Añejo aged for 24 to 28 months, and an Extra Añejo, aged for as long as 44 months.
The tequila team taste-tested over 1,000 different tequilas before finding their signature blend. Cincoro agave is hand-selected from private farms in the San Miguel el Alto region in the highlands and the El Arenal region in the lowlands. This combination serves as the base of the Cincoro signature house tequila.
The agave is harvested after a minimum of six years, ensuring the highest sugar levels required to make a high-quality tequila. Artisanally distilled in small batches, Cincoro tequilas are slow-cooked for 35 hours using a 35-year-old traditional clay oven, crushed with a traditional stone mill, and fermented with proprietary yeast. After distillation, the tequila is aged in ex-American whiskey barrels at the distillery in an underground cellar for added flavor and complexity.
Cincoro Añejo is aged at the distillery 24 to 28 months in an underground cellar, further enhancing the interaction between the barrel and tequila. Intense amber in color with copper overtones, wood and dried fruits on the nose elegantly resonate throughout. Notes of orange, fig and date, with hints of caramel and butterscotch are distinguished on the palate. Unforgettable mouth feel, with a smooth luxurious finish, lay the foundation for both classic cocktails or sipping neat.
