123 Diablito Organic Extra Anejo Tequila - Spirits Worth Raising

123 Diablito Organic Extra Anejo Tequila

Ancient Aztec artifacts recount the story of Mayahuel, a Sun God that dwelled in the sky and ultimately eloped with a Snake God named Quetzacoatl. In response to her marriage, demons chased the couple until they were able to capture and kill Mayahuel. Heartbroken, Quetzacoatl buried Mayahuel where she fell, and vowed to stand vigil and protect her soul. 123 Organic Tequila honors the sacred field where Mayahuel was laid to rest by her lover and the blue weber agave plants that eventually sprang forth there. The tequila is made exclusively from blue weber agave plants which are nearly a decade old and harvested by expert jimadors. Once the agave have been harvested, the hearts of the agave plant the pias are slowly cooked in stone ovens for nearly two days. These ovens contribute a slightly smoky flavor profile to the pias, which are then pressed and fermented using natural airborne yeasts. The fermented nectar is then twice distilled through a copper still.123 Diablito Organic Extra Aejo is crafted exclusively from organic, estate-grown agave which is harvested after a decade on a small parcel of land that sits 6,000 feet above sea level. The tequila is then aged for forty months in virgin, 114-liter American oak barrels. This extended aging process gives 123 Diablito Organic Extra Anejo an exquisite nose of white pepper, guava and vanilla, which leads to a hearty palate of chewy agave, cream and baking spices. The finish is bittersweet, with memorable hints of coffee beans and papaya.123 Diablito Organic Extra Aejo is extremely limited, so be sure to pick up a bottle today!
