El Tesoro Aniversario was made from agave harvested in 2000 by Carlos and his late father. The typical sugar content of blue agave lies between 30-33%. This agave had the highest sugar content of any of the plants they had ever harvested, 37% -- they had to do something special with it.
Was it a coincidence that the distillery was built in 1937 and the agave had 37% sugar content? Was it a coincidence that if we aged this tequila for 7 years longer than any other tequila is aged that it would be ready for the distillery's 70th anniversary on 7/7/07?
What is certain is that this tequila is truly unique and special.
Aged for seven years in white oak American bourbon barrels, this limited-edition "Extra Aņejo" offers a rare tequila experience. Carlos says that El Tesoro Aniversario is "soft and sweet, with scents of chocolate and vanilla and a hint of spice. There are stronger tastes of oak, with an almond-like flavor, and a rich agave finish."
