About El Mayor French Oak Chardonnay Cask Finish Reposado Tequila
El Mayor tequilas are handcrafted in the fertile, rocky soils of Jalisco Mexico using Weber Blue Agave. Once harvested their hand-selected agave is chopped stacked and cooked in autoclaves, before the cooked agave is shredded and gently pressed to extract the full agave flavor. After being fermented with a proprietary, family-owned yeast strain, the agave juice is double distilled in copper lined pots.
This limited edition Reposado is a limited edition release created by Graciela González, fourth generation distiller, and daughter of El Mayor Master Distiller Rodolfo González. Produced using estate-grown agave, this Reposado is matured for nine months in French oak ex-chardonnay barrels. There are fewer than 5,000 bottles available.
