Our favorite tequila of all-time is back with a new vintage featuring a new terroir. Produced from from over-ripe highland agave grown at 5,019 feet elevation in mineral-laden caliche soil of Vista Hermosa, Micohoacán. This chalky, calcium-carbonate rich terroir is evident in the 2018 vintage's heightened minerality. Rested for 2 years prior to release, the aromatics are complex and wondrous. You'll find pure roasted agave and sweet, cooked yams laced with warm baking spices and tropical fruit. On the palate the roasted agave and spice notes frame accenting flavors of fresh papaya, black pepper, a touch of coriander, and a wisp of citrus. Don’t miss this tequila revolución! It's the best bottle you'll buy this year

Enrique Fonseca crafts some of the finest aged Tequila ever produced. From an elevation of 3800 feet above Jalisco he stores large stocks of Tequila in a combination of French and American oak. Some aged up to 25 years. The incredible thing about Fonseca's mastery of his craft is that the spirit never loses its roots. While it takes on soft spices and vanilla and other characteristics, rather than losing all notes of Agave he manages to keep the fresh, green sweetness in balance. Masterful bottlings from a true artisan.
