Extra Añejo Tequila
What Makes Tequila an Extra Añejo?
As the name suggests, Extra Añejo tequilas are tequilas aged for the longest duration of time. To be classified as Extra Añejo, a tequila must age for at least three years. We age ours for 3 .5 years because we feel that amount of time yields the best flavor.
Drinking Extra Añejo Tequila
Don’t mix Extra Añejo tequilas’ pure flavors with other ingredients — sip them neat. (If you’re making cocktails, use our Reposado tequila.) For those who are new to sipping tequila, we explain how below. Also be sure to check out these great food options to pair with Extra Añejo tequila.
How to Taste Tequila
To get the full experience of sipping a fine tequila, you’ll need to follow proper protocol. The first step is to pour three to four ounces of tequila in a tequila sipping glass (a champagne flute will also work!). Once your glass is full, smell the tequila and take in the aroma. Next, breathe in and take a small sip. Pause for a second before swallowing to fully take in the flavor. Enjoy!
Handcrafted Works of Art
When you choose Baston del Rey tequilas, you’re not only getting great tequila — our bottles are handmade works of art. Small-town artisans in Guadalajara, Mexico hand-carve these bottles into little masterpieces. When you enjoy our tequilas, be sure to take note of these fine pieces of art, including Baston del Rey’s signature logo that showcases the “Sceptre of the King,” the story behind our name and brand.
