    Distiller Notes

    Aromatically intense with notes of caramel, butterscotch, dried fruits and toasty oak. Impressive complexity with flavors of dark chocolate, toffee, butter and sweet spices. This distinctive Anejo has a velvety soft and silky texture, full body, extraordinary finish and is best enjoyed neat in a snifter.

    Proof: 80

    Brought in by a Napa-based importer, this Tequila has another wine country connection: After 12 months in new American oak and four months in used French oak, this Tequila is finished for six months in Chardonnay barrels from winemaker Dave Phinney. The end result is a deep burnished gold hue and complex, faintly fruity aroma. The rich, bold palate opens with vanilla and allspice, fading to honey and brown butter and a spicy finish laced with cinnamon and clove sizzle. The heavy, square doorstopper of a bottle is a little awkward to handle and pour.

    Ayate is part of the Savage & Cooke family of spirits. The distillery, owned by Napa Valley winemaker Dave Phinney, is located on historic Mare Island and opened in 2018. The decision to locate the distillery on Mare Island was due to its fascinating history as a naval shipyard, the plethora of space, stunning brownstone buildings and its proximity to both the Napa Valley and San Francisco. Savage & Cooke distills, ages, finishes and bottles a range of brown spirits including Bourbon, Whiskey and Rye.

    For Ayate, Rosendo Ramirez Senior oversees the harvest and hand selects only the most pristine, mature agaves. Jimadors skillfully remove all of the green leaves down to the heart of the piñas so that only the dense, succulent, sugar-rich core remains. The agaves range in age from six to eight years old.

    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.
