Made exclusively from blue agave harvested from the Highlands region of Mexico, El Espolòn Tequila is crafted at the San Nicolas Distillery by Master Distiller Cirilo Oropeza. The distillery is located among the agave plantations of Jalisco's rolling hillsides, and has been the site of tequila production for over two centuries.

The process begins when expert jimadors harvest the agave after they have been matured for nearly a decade. Then, the heart of the agave — the piña — is removed and cooked for approximately 22 hours (versus the industry average of 12 hours). Once the piña has been cooked, it is shredded and the remaining agave pulp is fermented using a proprietary strain of yeast. During fermentation, Oropeza plays rock music within the distillery to inspire the agave. Then, he twice distills the wash through copper pot stills for approximately 5.5 hours (versus the industry standard of 3.5 hours).

After distillation, El Espolòn Tequila Añejo is aged for at least a year in new, white oak barrels before it's finished for an additional 2-3 months in ex-bourbon barrels from the Wild Turkey Distillery. As a result, El Espolòn Tequila Añejo has a bright, reddish-gold hue and a rich nose of caramel, vanilla and dried fruits. The palate evolves subtly, showing notes of wood and sweet agave, and leads to a remarkable finish filled with vanilla bean, light smoke and butterscotch.

El Espolòn Tequila earned the Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. In addition, it earned a score of 93 points from the Ultimate Spirits Challenge, which said the tequila had "vibrant and sweet agave aromas." Finally, the tequila earned a score of 94 points from the Beverage Testing Institute.
