About Tapatio Tequila Excelencia Extra Añejo

Tapatio Tequila Excelencia is a 100% agave añejo, created by Carlos Camarena. The Excelencia Extra Añejo was aged for four years in first-fill deep charred American white oak barrels. The flavor profile is quite complex with the nose offering flavors of vanilla, maple, caramel and apple balanced by roasted pepper, cinnamon and spices. If you leave it to breathe, it'll surprise you with aromas of baked bread, sweet pea and floral notes. The aromas further develop on the palate, delivering intense flavors and a rich and creamy character. At La Alteña Distillery, they say it would be “unforgivable” to ruin this stunning tequila in a cocktail or even dilute it with water. It should be savored and admired neat, like the best of whiskies and cognacs on the market.

About Tapatio Tequila

In the early 1800s, Don Felipe Camarena's ancestors began distilling tequila at their family farm, situated in the highlands region of Jalisco, Mexico. During the Mexican Revolution, Camarena's family was forced to abandon their farm, which was ultimately destroyed. Following the conflict, Don Felipe began growing and selling agave to other distillers in Jalisco. In 1937, after saving carefully and living frugally for many years, Don Felipe purchased a parcel of property in the mountains of Arandas in Jalisco, and opened the doors to La Alteña Distillery.

Situated just twenty miles away from the distillery that was destroyed during the Mexican Revolution, La Alteña is serviced by a network of underground springs that serve as a constant source of energy for the blue weber agave growing on the Camarena estate. Today, Don Carlos Camarena, Felipe's grandson and La Alteña's third-generation master distiller, pays homage to his family name by maintaining the standards of excellence set down by his ancestors.
