CORAZON Single Estate Añejo Tequila
Corazón is Tequila so beautiful it makes the heart skip a beat.
The Añejo picked up a Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2020 a Gold Medal at the International Spirits Challenge 2020 and an ‘Extraordinary’ 95 points at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge. Aged in American oak for 16-18 months it tastes like moist tobacco freshly brewed coffee roasted pineapple campfires mint and baking spices in a mossy forest. Sip this super-smooth Tequila neat preferably alongside a sangrita or one of the seven moles of Oaxaca.
Corazón Tequilas are crafted at Casa San Matias a family-owned distillery in Jalisco with a 130-year-long history. Each one is a single estate Tequila created by hand using 100% Blue Weber agave and an old family recipe. Corazón means ‘heart’ in Spanish and refers to the piña of the agave plant but also the passion and enthusiasm that Carmen Villarreal and her team put into every bottle. One thing that really sets Casa San Matias apart in a such a male-dominated industry is its inclusive culture – it has been granted Gender Equity Model certification by Mexico’s National Women’s Institute. Another is that after the second distillation oxygen is infused into the Tequila which creates a softer spirit and lifts the delicate nuances that are often lost in their competitors’ versions. Corazón would make a heartfelt gift for any Tequila aficionado.
