Espolòn® Tequila, one of the fastest-growing super-premium tequilas, announces the release of Espolòn Añejo X, a limited release extra añejo aged six years under the watchful eye of Master Distiller Cirilo Oropeza. Evoking the storied culture of real Mexico, Espolòn Añejo X comes to market in a dark, dramatic package worthy of this remarkable tequila.
Espolòn Añejo X’s distinctive handmade jet black matte glass bottle pays tribute to the Barro Negro, a centuries-old traditional Mexican art form that was resurrected and made popular in the 1950s. Inspired by the work of Jose Guadalupe Posada, the bottle’s label features the story of “The Day of the Dead”—the celebration of the traditional Mexican belief that death is also the beginning of new life. In this scene, Ramón the Rooster faithfully stands in vigil, honoring the memory of the past, while the calavera serenade in anticipation of the triumphant renewal of the spirit.
Espolòn Tequilas, made from 100% Weber Blue Agave, are known for their bold, round palate; medium to full bodied velvety mouth feel with rich roasted agave, sweet tropical fruit, vanilla and brown spices; and long spicy finish. Espolòn Añejo X retains its classic agave character with added layers of depth and complexity that comes with careful aging. It has a rich flavor profile of prominent vanilla with notes of nutmeg and white peppercorn, which are joined by hints of cocoa nibs, bitter chocolate, rich roasted fruits, and agave.
