El Tesoro de Don Felipe Tequila, the award-winning Tequila producer from La Alteña Distillery in the Jalisco highlands of Mexico, and the third-generation Camarena distilling family, are proud to introduce the second installment of "The Mundial Collection" Limited Edition Cask Finishing Series: El Tesoro® Mundial: Knob Creek® Rye Edition.
El Tesoro® Mundial: Knob Creek Rye is a unique expression of El Tesoro® Añejo, aged for twelve months in genuine charred-oak Knob Creek Rye Whiskey barrels that previously held Knob Creek Rye Whiskey for seven years, resulting in a delicious sipping tequila that is perfectly balanced with subtle sweetness and spice. As a special one-time release, this is the first and only time El Tesoro® has been rested in Knob Creek Rye Barrels.
"We are thrilled to introduce this exceptional new tequila, produced at our home in La Alteña with barrels so generously provided in the spirit of innovation by our friends at Knob Creek," says Jenny Camarena, third generation family proprietor and master of operations for El Tesoro. "My brother Carlos and I are the students of our father and grandfather before us, who were both proud tequila traditionalists, yet pioneers of their time who were always experimenting.
"The Mundial series allows us to pursue these creative paths in tequila, and the Knob Creek Rye edition is no different. The way that our delicate Añejo marries with the amazing full bodied, bread pudding and spice flavors of the bourbon casks makes this fascinating tequila a delicious treat that we are incredibly proud to share."
