El Tesoro "K&L Exclusive" Single Barrel #158 Reposado Tequila (750ml)

SKU #1343582

No single distillery visit is more eye opening than the trip to La Alteña distillery in Arandas, Mexico. The beautiful estate is surrounded by agave fields and the rich red soils create an incredible site in contrast to the old brick and vibrant surrounding greenery. La Alteña is a place stuck in time. Built in 1937, the techniques used now are nearly identical to those implemented by the founder Don Felipe Camarena 80 years ago. His grandson Carlos is a legend in the industry. Senor Camarena is the face of La Alteña, but he seems most comfortable in the fields talking about the incredible plant that his family has relied on for decades. He walks through the fields examining his crop with meticulous detail. The fields stretch in every direction, but the first thing you notice about La Alteña is the smell, a pungent mix of earthy roasting cucurbits and sweet tilled soil. It's not clean and sparkling like so many modern distilleries. Carlos insists that every little bit of grime and grit is essential to creating the ultimate flavor of this special spirit. The decade of energy stored in these magical plants and the methods used at La Alteña are without a doubt the best way to capture the soul of this revered plant with true authenticity. Despite trends in modern tequila, controlling the powerful magic store in the rich fibers of the agave plant is not science, but equal parts art and ritual. This single cask represents the most honest and authentic expression of agave anywhere.
