This tequila is distilled and bottled on the Beckman Estate
in just outside the town of Tequila (yes, there is a town called that) in the
state of Jalisco, the heart of tequila country. This family has a tradition of
over 200 years of making tequila, making them easily the oldest tequila makers
anywhere. The agaves grown on this estate have a pedigree equally long dating
from 1758 – longer than those strains of yeast certain bourbon makers go on
Double distilled – all tequilas are – the difference here is they use traditional alembics (somewhat generically and less romantically known as type of pot still) cognac stills and aged in used Bourbon and French oak barrels. This practice of using barrels is in contrast to some of the more commercial companies who use wood vats big enough to live in – giving the tequila a good bit more flavor and aging characteristics than the later. This is the latest release – an Anejo (Old) expression of this particular line. The others being Lunazul Silver and Lunazul Reposado.
