Color is a crystal clear tequila. With smells of light almond, citrus. Enters with very soft-mouth feel some citrus and pineapple with a silky and approachable agave and hints of black pepper mid-palate. Clean finish of vanilla bean with notes of white chocolate and marzipan.Handcrafted with 100% pure blue agave, Espolón premium tequila celebrates real Mexico and its storied culture through classic 19th century artistry and the iconic rooster, a symbol of national pride. Super premium 100% pure Blue Agave tequila crafted at the acclaimed San Nicolas distillery. Our state-of-the-art facility, located in the Los Altos (Highlands) region of Jalisco, is recognized as the "Best Factory in Mexico." Master Distiller, Cirilo Oropeza, has a passion for perfecting this spirit and brings decades of expertise to Espolón. We favor craftsmanship over mass production—to extract more rich, intense flavors, we cook our piñas for 18 to 20 hours (versus the industry average of 12) and our distilling process lasts 5½ hours (versus the industry average of 3½).
