About Mico Tequila Añejo
Mico Tequila was founded with the goal of producing a new classic, a modern take on the Mexican spirit that would respect its rich legacy. They craft small-batch tequila at Tequila el Viejito that is pure yet complex with a balance of smoothness and flavor as well as sweetness and spice.
It all starts with quality blue Weber agaves from the highlands that are hand-selected by the expert jimadors at their peak maturity when they are at their sweetest. After the harvest, the agave hearts are cooked patiently using traditional methods ― in brick ovens, extracting the sweet and fruity flavors. Afterwards, the cooked agaves are milled in a roller mill, letting the juice rest in stainless steel tanks for 6 to 7 days and enabling the fermentation process to transform sugars into alcohol. It is at this step that the special yeast strain adds a burst of fresh flavor.
Double distillation in small batches then ensures that a balance of smoothness and flavor with earthy and herbaceous notes is achieved every single time. Finally, the different expressions get rested in different barrels for varying amounts of time, ensuring that each bottle reaches the perfect level of complexity and refinement. The tequila is bottled in Mexico as well, with the unique bottle celebrating the country's diverse culture and landscape. The unique curved bottle features the Mico monkey, sealed onto the glass with fire. Mico tequila has no artificial colors or flavors added.
Mico currently has 3 classic tequila expressions in their lineup: a Blanco, Reposado, and Añejo. The latter is patiently matured for approximately 16 months in American oak barrels that used to hold Kentucky straight bourbon, while the finishing takes place in Alexander Valley Cabernet barrels where the spirit spends another 2 months. The 80-proof tequila is smooth, rich, and complex ― a unique delight for the senses.
