Proof66 Notes

In pronouncing Alquimia, stress the second syllable: "al KEE mee-uh." The distillery uses "organic methods" and claims to be environmentally friendly using 100% natural processes and no additives. The brand is owned by optometrist Adolfo Murillo of Oxnard, California. In an interview with the Organic Wine Journal, Murillo describes his commitment to organic production on his Mexican ranch and his efforts to teach other farmers of produce similar methods. 

Alquimia Reserva de Don Adolfo extra-anejo was first launched in 2010. It is aged for 6 years, which is quite a bit longer than the normal 3 year aging process customary for the "extra-anejo" label. The aging gives it what they call a "beautiful golden color" and they suggest enjoying as you would a fine cognac: sipping neat in a snifter.

Alquimia was named "Best Extra-Anejo Tequila" in the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

In their 2010 write-up, the Beverage Testing Institute said it was "A complex Cognac styled anejo that will go great with cigars." They followed that up in 2012 by suggesting it had a "nice bourbon barrel finish."
