      Don Pilar Extra Añejo is tequila distilled from 100% blue agave grown in the Los Altos (Highlands) region of Jalisco, on five ranches owned by the distillery near the town of San José de Gracia. This Extra Añejo ages for 3 years in American white oak before it finishes an additional 4 months in French Limousin oak. Each bottle is hand-signed by distiller Don José Pilar Contreras Marquez and packaged in wooden gift boxes.



      Don Pilar (yes, he’s a real person) worked his way backwards through tequila by making an añejo first. But he did it a little differently by using new American oak barrels instead of cheaper ex-bourbon barrels. The result is a rich tequila with more grip than other añejos due to the more intense barrel extraction. Ends up with some more bourbon like notes of tobacco, leather, and black pepper, mixed with tequila flavors of agave, vanilla, and banana. One for añejo drinkers and whiskey drinkers looking to dip their toe into tequila.
