Kirkland Signature™ Añejo Tequila 100% Blue Agave
This ultra-premium Kirkland Signature Añejo Tequila is blended by Master Distiller Arturo Fuentes. The finely aged tequila is dark amber in color, and features smooth pepper and smoky wood flavors with hints of sweet spice, vanilla, honey maple and caramel. The savory, spicy finish is long and complex.
- 100% Blue Agave
Kirkland Signature Añejo Tequila is made from 100% blue agave, some of the finest available. The 50 to 70 pound, hand-selected, hand-picked agaves are an average of eight years old when harvested in Jalisco, Mexico. The agave leaves are cut away to form piñas, the ripe core of the plant. The piñas are then cut into quarters and baked in a steam oven, where the natural starches are converted to sugar. The baked piñas are shredded, pressed for juice and placed in fermentation tanks.
After fermentation, the juices are distilled twice in stainless steel pot stills, resulting in a superior spirit that is transferred to American oak barrels for aging. The blending barrels are between one and six years old. An “extra aged” tequila has an average age of three years in oak barrels.
