Hi! Today I want to invite you to a tour through Hacienda with a tasting of our Premium tequilas, I will not tell you about the process, that will be on another occasion.
Welcome and join me!
Built around the 18th century and open to the public on May 8, 1996, Hacienda Corralejo is a place where the present respects the past, but we are hopeful about the future.
We know that we are in the present time because we can take a picture with our latest generation phones, but it seems that the capriciously Hacienda wanted you to forget about your social networks and let yourself be trapped by it as in a journey through time, since the mobile signal disappears once you go through the door.
First, I will invite you to visit the original part of the Hacienda, that dating from the 18th century, this part is almost intact, some improvements were made to floors and ceilings, due to the ravages of time, but they were necessary.
This part of the Hacienda is ideal for tasting a Tequila Reposado 1810, this Tequila represents the beginning of the Mexican War for Independence, precisely in the year of 1810, its color is amber, its notes and flavors are: cooked agave, grapefruit, chocolate and vanilla, and the old part of Hacienda Corralejo is the special location for enjoying this tequila.
Now let’s walk through the process, and as we arrive at the copper stills, I’m going to invite you a Tequila Corralejo Blanco 1753, which was the year when the Mexican liberator Don Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla was born. The slow distillation in copper still grants herbal and citrus aromatic notes to this White Tequila, such as grapefruit, mint, peppermint and lemon. The true essence of a brand can be known through its White Tequilas, and what better than being next to the copper stills to know the spirit of a tequila.
Let us go unto the beautiful and impressive cava that protects the old tequilas, but before entering with me, leave your sorrows and sins in a confessional, so that you do not leave them to the Tequila. You can admire our domes and get lost in the fragrances where Tequila ends and the oak begins.
I want to thank you for this tour with a Tequila Corralejo Extra Añejo 1821. Thanks to the effort of great men, the independence of Mexico was signed in the year 1821.
The 36 months of maturation in these oak barrels give this magnificent tequila amber and copper tones, sweet notes of cooked agave accented in the spicy notes like cinnamon, pepper, clove, as well as smoked notes for its fine roasting process that provides woody, herbal notes, as well as soft notes of flowers, chocolate and spicy flavors, like cinnamon and pepper.
People come and go, new constructions are made, but the Hacienda still has its special touch.
