Ultra-Premium Santo Tequila Anejo Debuts

Santo Spirits announces the fifth expression in its award-winning portfolio of ultra-premium agave spirits with the rollout of Santo Tequila Añejo.

Produced by third-generation distiller Juan Eduardo Nuñez and tequilera Karina Rojo at El Viejito Distillery (NOM 1107) in Atotonilco el Alto, Jalisco, Santo Tequila Añejo is crafted using time-honored methods focused on preserving the heritage of bold agave flavor from when tequila was first made in Mexico centuries ago.

Handcrafted in small batches, Santo Tequila Añejo is distilled from 100% Blue Weber Agave – both estate-grown and sourced from the highest-quality suppliers in the Highlands region. The agaves are cooked using traditional stone ovens – employing a low pressure and slow cooking method that optimizes the deep, earthy flavor of sweet agave.

To meet the team’s exacting standards, Santo Tequila Añejo is aged for an average of 24 months in former American Whiskey oak casks. That additional maturation allowed the liquid to reach a perfect flavor profile – with that copper hue renowned among aged spirits.

Santo Spirits was founded by Sammy Hagar and Guy Fien.

Available as a 750 ml, Santo Tequila Añejo retails for $74.98. Santo Tequila Añejo is available to pre-order online.  All Santo Spirits products are available nationwide in the United States. Santo Spirits is represented by Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits in 44 markets across the U.S.
