Espanita has unveiled the first tequila in its newly announced Barrel Reserve Collection, the Double Barrel Reposado. This will be the first line extension for the brand, which currently offers blanco, reposado and añejo bottlings.
Made from 100% Blue Weber agave, Espanita Double Barrel Reposado Tequila initially matured in American white oak casks before being finished in Bourbon barrels from Kentucky. On the nose, it offers aromas of orange zest, apricot chutney, toasted honey oak, Cherry Heering, and vanilla bean. The palate finds roasted agave, cherry cola, spiced nuts, and candied ginger. The palate delivers toasted coconut, apple wood, and hazelnut spread.
“We believe that it is innovation that is one of the main driving forces behind an incredible growth of Tequila popularity in the last years that made this iconic spirit a beverage of choice for American consumers,” said Marina Wilson, president and founder of Espanita Tequila. “We shall continue our experimentation with creative barrelling and maturation approaches in hopes to bring more exciting flavour expressions to blue agave fans soon.”
Espanita plans on rolling out the second edition of the Barrel Reserve Collection in the second half of 2023. It’s expected to be a bourbon barrel-finished Double Barrel Espanita Añejo Tequila.
Bottled at 40% ABV the tequila is priced at $42.99 per 750ml bottle. For more information, head over to the brand’s official website.
