Barajas Tequila Añejo

Tequila Barajas Añejo is the epitome of luxury and refinement. Aged for a minimum of one year in American oak barrels, our unique process results in a rich, complex flavor profile that is unmatched in the industry.

Our agave gives a sweetness and a hint of floral notes to the tequila, making it stand out compared to other Añejos. The American oak barrels add a unique and distinct flavor profile, bringing notes of spice and a hint of sweetness to the tequila.

VINEYARD


Agave plantation : Mature agaves grow shoots on their sides. Those shoots are taken from the ground and planted again in a spot where they can reach their maximum size.

Harvest : After five years, the agaves are finally mature and ready to be “jimados”, a traditional harvesting method where their stalks are cut one by one leaving only the “piña”.

Cooking : The “piñas” are cut in half and placed in the oven. Cooked with steam, this process permits to extract the fermentable sugars.

Grinding : When the “pinãs” are cooked, they are crushed and pressed in order to extract the sweet juice.

The Tequila


Fermentation : The juice extracted from the grinding is combined with yeast and water in fermentation tanks.

Distillation and Rectification : Now rich in alcohol, the juice is heated up to 92 °C where the alcohol and part of the water evaporate. This mixture is then cooled down and condensed; the resulting liquid is called “ordinario”, which will be heated up again to obtain the silver tequila.

Aging : The tequila is then transferred into oak barrels to age, which will reinforce its flavor notes.
