Artá Tequila Añejo

Two years of aging in American oak barrels lends a refined air layered with complexity and hints of vanilla and caramel to Artá Añejo.

Born from time-honored tradition and the passion to create an authentic, hand-crafted spirit, Artá is a truly singular tequila. Artá originates exclusively from a single estate in the birthplace of tequila itself---Arenal, Mexico---and is the unique art of an 11th generation ranching family and a 3rd generation master distiller. Made from 100% organic Weber Blue Agave matured for 8 to 10 years, each variety carries a consistency of flavor and an authenticity of character worthy of the Artá name. A distinctive, triangular bottle created by artisan hands from recycled glass transports the spirit of Artá’s origins to you.

Artá Tequila proudly uses 100% organic agave and recycled materials in its tequilas and packaging.

Artá Tequila – The art of tequila.

The Arta bottle always intrigued me. The bottle looks great and it's the only tequila that I know of from NOM 1360. While I tend to prefer highland tequilas to lowland ones, I decided to take the splash and see if there was more art inside the bottle than one the outside.

Price: $45-50/bottle
Aroma: A very inviting nose with cooked agave, vanilla and cinnamon.
Initial Taste: Buttery agave, vanilla and cinnamon. Desserty and delicious.
Body: Agave, oak, cinnamon and still that buttery presence. A really oily and tasty aged tequila.
Finish: A great finish with agave pepper, oak, vanilla, cinnamon and a smoky ending.

This is the prize of the Arta line. The aging done by Arta is simply exquisite. While the blanco has a few few of the characteristics of a lowland that don't necessarily suit my palate, the aging that is done with this juice is very good. If you like lowland tequilas, you will probably love this entire line. If like a good balance of vanilla, spice and oak...you should definitely get a bottle of Arta Anejo.
