40% ABV

This is an Extra Añejo for the agave heads, even those who may prefer Blanco Tequila. Unlike most XA's it retains its core element of agave flavor and aroma. Made from fully mature highland agaves that are roasted in El Pandillo's custom brick and stone ovens and then tahona crushed with their 19,000 pound custom tahona nicknamed "Felipenstein" after master distiller and designer Felipe Camarena. Fermented in stainless steel tanks with spring water and reclaimed rainwater and without agave fibers (aka "Bagasso"). Double distilled in copper pots and aged for 3 years in well used American oak barrels. Notes of cinnamon and old wood. On the palate it's smooth as silk with baking spices, agave sweetness, and a pleasantly mellow and lengthy finish. 

About Destileria El Pandillo - NOM 1579
El Pandillo is the domain of Master Distiller Felipe Camarena. Felipe is a 3rd generation distiller and a 6th generation agavero (agave farmer). His family founded and owns the La Alteña Distillery (Tequila Tapatio, El Tesoro de Don Felipe and others) and his brother Carlos owns Los Alambiques (Tequila Ocho).

Felipe is a mechanical engineer by trade and he has designed and built numerous unique pieces of equipment that he uses in the production process. Perhaps the most famous one is "Felipenstein", his 19,000 pound custom tahona that he uses to extract the juices from his roasted highland agave. It's also one of the most sustainable facilities in Jalisco with a rainwater capture system, biodiversity in his agave fields, and stillage treatment program. He is a force of nature and a true master of his craft. He's also one hell of a good hang.
