The Anejo tequila of this limited edition is inspired by?Calaveritas de Azucar, a colorful sweet traditionally made during D?a de Muertos.
In honor of this tradition, our Master Distiller chose to finish this tequila in casks of?rhum agricole, an artisanal rum from the island of Martinique. The essence of this rum distilled from fresh sugarcane juice remains in the wooden casks and helps give the tequila its unique profile.
Enjoy this Anejo tequila neat in a tulip-shaped spirits glass.
The bottle’s design is inspired by the?ofrenda, an often elaborate and colorful offering for the deceased. The base of the decanter is decorated with iconography emblematic of the marigold flowers and?papel picado?(paper with cut-out designs) placed on the altars dedicated to the deceased. The bottle’s white glaze is representative of?alfe?iques?(sugar confections). But arguably the most eye-catching design on the bottle is the depiction of a?calavera de az?car, or sugar skull. The vibrant bottles were handmade by the company’s Mexican artisans and each bottle took around 12 days to complete.
