About Vuelo del Aviador Gran Reserva Tequila Añejo

Vuelo del Aviador crafts artisanal tequila of the highest quality in Jalisco, Mexico. Their lineup of luxury spirits consists of the Plata, Reposado, Añejo, and Extra Añejo. The finest blue weber agaves used are fully-matured, meaning they have been growing on the estate for 7 to 9 years. They are then cooked slowly in clay ovens for 72 hours before the pulp is fermented and distilled using copper-pot stills. The different juices then get aged for varying amounts of time, from the Plata which takes 4 months, to the Extra Añejo which takes 5 to 7 years. Different casks are used for maturation. These include French and American oak, Napa Valley red wine barrels, as well as whiskey casks. The Plata has won a Double Gold Medal at the 2020 edition of the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Based on the same liquid as the award-winning Plata expression, the Vuelo del Aviador Gran Reserva Añejo spends 2 years in Napa Valley red wine barrels before being bottled at 80 proof. "Vuelo del Aviador" is Spanish for "flight of the pilot", hence the wings in the design of the bottle. The exquisite handcrafted tequila has delicate notes and a rich finish with dried fruit and grape notes.
