Tequila - Anejo
Maestro Tequilero Añejo 100% Puro de Agave Tequila
This is a Tier 1 score in the Tequila category. It means the spirit has won the highest recommendation at least once and probably many times.
Maestro Tequilero tequilas are made in traditional pot stills and they claim every aspect of production is done by hand. The "tequila maestros" are Marco Anguiano and Luis Yerenas. They take pride in using "ancient stone ovens" for roasting the agave, which they say results in concentrated of sugars and a more intense flavor.
Maestro Blanco anejo is the aged expression of their tequila spending at least 12 months in oak.
The label was first launched in 2009 and is owned by Proximo Spirits.
