Anejo tequilas are aged tequilas that have had time to develop richer, more complex flavors. As tequilas age in oak barrels, they take on hints of caramel, vanilla, and oak that smooth out the traditional agave flavor. The best anejos are put in barrels for at least a year, allowing them time to truly develop their character.

Those seeking a more refined sipping experience will appreciate anejo tequilas. The extra time in oak creates a drink that can be enjoyed neat or on the rocks, perfect for relaxing after a long day. The complexity of flavors in high-quality anejos allow for savoring each sip. Overall, anejo tequilas offer a smoother alternative to younger tequilas for tequila connoisseurs looking to unwind with a quality spirit.

Please drink responsibly, be fully accountable with your alcohol consumption, and show others respect.
