About Corralejo Tequila Añejo
At the heart of Mexico, there is a beautiful hacienda just outside the town of Pénjamo in the Mexican state of Guanajuato: Hacienda Corralejo. It is a place drenched in history, the vibrant culture of Mexico and tequila making tradition. Originally built in 1700 and today surrounded by blue weber agave as far as the eye can see, it stands on the land where Father Hidalgo, a key figure in the Mexican War of Independence, was born. Most famous for his speech, titled the Cry of Dolores, where he called for the end of Spanish colonial rule, he sacrificed his life for the independence of his homeland. Today, the hacienda tells an authentic story of Mexico's history, but also its own story, which was written over 300 years and can be admired in every corner of the estate as well as tasted in every single tequila bottle produced.
Aged for 12 months in charred American oak, Corralejo Añejo Tequila is a 100% agave tequila that comes in a bright red bottle – the Mexican color of prosperity. Don't let yourself be deceived by the bottling, however, as the color of this Añejo is gold with flashes of amber shining through. Adored for its silky texture and an intensely woody and smoky finish, it's bottled at 76 proof. A unique expression in the Añejo category, this is a universal, mild tasting authentic tequila that delivers a blooming peppery surprise on the finish.
