AsomBroso 11-Year Añejo. Its purebred quality is the pinnacle of century-old manufacturing traditions virtually unheard of outside of the Tequila Elite of Mexico. This is the first and only 11-year añejo tequila to be sold in the world. While there is no Vintage nomenclature for tequila as regulated by the Mexican CRT (the official Tequila Regulatory Council), for all intents and purposes, this is a Classic Vintage tequila from Ricardo Gamarra, Founder and President of California Tequila, LLC. This Vintage 11-year añejo tequila was rested in 220 liter French Oak casks, is certified by the CRT, and its offering will be the first of its kind outside of a select "inner circle" in Mexico.
Over two decades ago, Enrique Fonseca Sr., a renown agave grower and tequila maker, had an idea... to take his best organically grown agave and use it to make a special longer aged, extra special tequila for his friends.” After a ten-year growth period, he hand selected the 100% Blue Agave plants to become this special tequila. He then took his freshly distilled premium silver tequila and sealed a cache of it into a few small French oak casks as part of his experiment in making a longer aged Añejo.
This 11-year añejo tequila is a true competitor to the world’s finest aged spirits that represents the inextricable ties between Mexican Culture and tequila.
And, it fits well with Enrique Fonseca Sr.’s dream of creating a Superb sipping tequila for his close friends to enjoy.
The new AsomBroso “Vintage” 11-Year aged Tequila is available in limited quantity and in limited distribution. It is bottled in a special Limited Edition "Bella Age", hand-blown bottle that retains the now familiar trademarked AsomBroso decanter bottle shape. Estimated retail price is between $900 and $1000 per bottle.
