Origen Extra Añejo Tequila
“An enchanting and exclusive Extra Añejo Tequila.” – Robb Report
There are Tequilas, then there’s the mesmerising beauty of Código 1530. For many years this was a nameless private label Tequila; a secret whispered about by those-in-the-know and shared only amongst Mexico’s elite and the country’s finest tequilieras and jimadors. This mythical bottling was not something you could buy. Until now.
Código 1530 Origen is made in Amatitán using seven-year-old agave hearts, cooked in stainless steel and fermented using organic baker’s yeast. Each bottle requires a phenomenal 7.5kg of agave hearts to produce. The fermented juice is then distilled twice in stills built by the distilling family themselves. It’s then aged for a staggering six years – that’s longer than many whiskies – in the finest uncharred red wine barrels from Napa Valley. And when we say ‘finest’, we really mean it. Although sworn to secrecy, all we can say is that they are without doubt one of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon producers on the planet – a bottle of their Grand Vin would set you back around £3,000.
Unlike any other Tequila on Earth; although it has the tell-tale pepper and earthy agave notes, the flavour profile has more in common with Scotch or Cognac. Roses, caramel, ancho chillies, warm leather, vanilla, cinnamon, bonfire smoke and an abundance of dried fruits like figs, prunes and raisins. Although this simply has to be sipped neat, can you imagine just how good an Old Fashioned it would make?
