Corralejo 1821 Extra Añejo
Corralejo 1821 Extra Añejo Tequila is named after the year Mexico’s independence was finally won, thanks to the tireless efforts of great men. 100% blue agave tequila is produced from double distillation in copper pot stills and aged for 36 months in oak barrels with a maximum capacity of 200 liters. A fine selection of barrels brings out its excellent flavor.
- Colour: Amber tones with copper flashes and a full body result from a high-quality production process.
- Aromas: Sweet notes of cooked agave accented by spicy ones such as cinnamon, pepper, and clove. Also noteworthy are the smoky notes brought out by fine toasting, where woody and herbal notes are combined with the fruity aromas of coffee, walnut, apple, and green pineapple.
- Finish: A perfect smoked and woody flavor with initial notes of walnut, almond, vanilla, and cooked agave. These give way to an aftertaste that denotes fine citrus and herbal strands, smooth floral, chocolate, and spicy notes, including cinnamon and pepper. A 36-month aging regime yields a tequila with an impeccable, smooth flavor.

What is the difference between Tequila & Mezcal?
Tequila is a type of mezcal, much like how scotch and bourbon are types of whiskey.
Tequila and mezcal are both types of agave-based spirits that are popular in Mexico, but there are some key differences between the two. Tequila is made exclusively from the blue agave plant, which is primarily grown in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, about 40 miles northwest of Guadalajara. Mezcal, on the other hand, can be made from any type of agave plant, and is often made using traditional, labor-intensive methods.
One of the most noticeable differences between tequila and mezcal is their flavor. Tequila is typically smooth and subtle, with hints of fruit and spices, while mezcal has a more complex, smoky flavor that comes from the roasting of the agave hearts before they are fermented and distilled.
Another difference between the two spirits is their production process. Tequila is typically made using modern industrial methods, while mezcal is often produced using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. This can give mezcal a more authentic, artisanal character.
In general, tequila is considered to be a more refined and sophisticated spirit, while mezcal is often viewed as a more rustic and traditional drink. Both are popular in Mexico and are enjoyed around the world, so the best way to decide which one you like is to try them both and see which one suits your tastes.
