El Grado Tequila Añejo
El Grado Tequila Añejo is an ultra premium tequila and crafted from 100% pure Blue Weber Agave plants grown in the rich soil of Los Altos in the Highlands of Jalisco. Aged in select Tennessee Whiskey barrels for fifteen months, El Grado Añejo is in a class all its own.
Each Agave plant is carefully selected from mature fields yielding large plants high in sugar content. The la pina, the soul of the agave plant, is never rushed; it is selected at its peak maturity to provide El Grado Tequila a mellow, fully developed Agave flavor. The traditional art of slow-cooking has not changed with El Grado, it has been improved. We combine state-of-the-art quality process controls supported by modern technology with the traditional production and crop techniques used 200 years ago and handed down through generations. Tradition meets the 21st century.
El Grado presents their product in a manner befitting its pride of place as “Tequila’s Crown Jewel.” Simple, soaring and elegant, the French-made bottle features a glass-topped closure.
