The volcanic soil of the highlands region in Jalisco, Mexico, offers the perfect terroir for growing majestic Blue Weber agave. Known for its higher sugar content, it provides Tequila Corrido Añejo with its characteristically outstanding balance of crisp and floral aromas. The agaves used are slow-cooked in tightly closed stainless steel ovens and are double distilled. The master distiller is an expert at knowing when to cut the “heads” and “tails” from distillation, taking only the best “heart” during the process for the tequilas. With each harvest and distillation, the distillery pays homage to the tequila-making traditions and stories behind its evolution. From the smugglers of the past to the mixologists of the present, Corrido Tequila raises a glass to all that have played a role in living a life dedicated to craftsmanship, adventure, and love.
First released in March of 2021, this unique añejo features a double-barrel process unlike any other. It requires diligent attention by Master Distiller, Ana María Romero Mena, who is dedicated to making Corrido's Añejo distinctly rich and silky, yet agave-forward. First, the signature blanco tequila is placed into proprietary barrels made from Hungarian, Missouri, and Limousine Oak (which previously held whiskey) for 12 months. They then move the tequila to a second barrel that previously held Merlot from Mexico's Valle de Guadalupe region for another six months. Each bottle is adorned with a leather-tied guitar pick, paying tribute to the musicians who tell their stories through the Corrido, a traditional Mexican-style ballad with lyrics that narrate an event close to their hearts.
