El Tequileño Reposado Gran Reserva Tequila

El Tequileño Reposado Gran Reserva

Don Jorge created El Tequileno to honour the birthplace of Tequila. He uses the highest quality agave sourced from the Highlands of Jalisco. Pure volcanic spring water is used during the milling process to extract natural sugars from the cooked agave. 150 Year old mango trees are grown very close to the fermentation tanks and these trees impact the natural yeast that forms during fermentation resulting in a incredible unique flavour of Tequila.

El Tequileño Reposado Gran Reserva is aged for a minimum of 8 months in American Oak and blended with a small amount of Añejo aged in American Oak.
