Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with El Cristiano Tequila
El Cristiano Tequila is dedicated to producing the purest tequila with no additives – (85% of tequila today has added sugars, flavors, and thickeners added) – with a high focus on harvesting only mature agave aged at least five years and certain sizing through sustainable agriculture practices. By establishing this process, they have eliminated the need for additives which would change the true essence of 100% Highlands Blue Weber Agave.
“The Tequila.” El Cristiano takes pride in their unique, unmatched collection offerings and tasting notes.
The Foundation varietals collection includes their signature SILVER, REPOSADO, and ANEJO offerings.
Clase Silver Tequila – El Cristiano Silver, its foundation, boasts unrivaled complexity and depth with coil copper stills imparting a pure, clean taste and full mouth roundness. A full body with bright, silver hues and defined legs. Subtly sweet cooked agave aromas with hints of butter, notes of mature fruit, and spicy hints of Bay Leaf and Rosemary.
Clase Reposado Tequila – El Cristiano Reposado, 6 months barrel aged. By aging their Silver batches in American Oak casks for 6 months, their Reposado develops a subtle layer of whiskey-like oaky flavors, aromas, and complexities.
Clase Anejo Tequila – El Cristiano Anejo is 18 months barrel aged in American Oak casks, to add to the flavor of dark chocolate roast coffee beans and exotic savory spices, combining with its flavors and aromas, resulting in a complex sipping tequila.
The Premium Aged varietals. Their premium-aged offerings initially include EXTRA REPOSADO 11 months barrel-aged (El Cristiano XR), EXTRA ANEJO 3 years barrel-aged (El Cristiano Black).
El Cristiano XR: Clase Extra Reposado Tequila – El Cristiano extra-aged reposado, 11 months barrel aged, creates an entirely new category. Their XR blends 11-month Reposado with their 8-year Extra Anejo, to appeal to those that love the flavor profile of Reposado but want a little more complexity and sweetness.
El Cristiano Black: Clase Extra Anejo Tequila – El Cristiano extra aged Anejo, 3 years barrel aged in American Oak barrels to create a luxurious sipping tequila of unrivaled complexity.
