Using 100% Weber blue agave, picked at their peak — anywhere from 8-12 years old — Anejo is aged in French Oak barrels for a minimum of 14 months. Its finish is described as spicy and well rounded with flavors of toasted oak, vanilla and butterscotch. This deep, luxurious tequila is ideal for sipping.
1800 is the year the world’s first premium tequila, real tequila, was born. For more than two hundred years, 1800 has never wavered from its original formula and distillation process — producing a 100% agave, quality liquid each and every time.
The bottles that end up on the shelves contain the same quality tequila as every bottle that has left the distillery for centuries.
Because of their great complexity, Anejo Tequilas are most often used as a substitute for Brandy or Whiskey in cocktails like the Manhattan or Old Fashioned. Anejo Tequilas must be aged in oak barrels for between one and three years, while Extra Anejo refers to any Tequila aged longer than three years. The prolonged contact with the oak barrel allows the wood to make a much stronger impression on the Tequila by adding toffee, caramel and vanilla to the sweet, spicy agave flavor profile.
