Lunazul Tequila Double Barrel Reposado Reserva Especial Rittenhouse
This is a unique blend of handcrafted 100 percent agave tequilas. Aged first in American white oak barrels, it is finished in 11-year-old wheated bourbon barrels hand-selected from Heaven Hill Distillery.
This limited edition Lunazul Double Barrel Reposado is released by Heaven Hill in partnership with Tierra de Agaves distillery (NOM 1513). Double-barreled, it ages first in American white oak, then finishes in Heaven Hill’s 11-year-old bourbon barrels. Master Distiller Francisco Quijano then blends the spirit with select extra añejo tequila.
Nose: A fairly smooth nose with notes of smoke and a slight oakiness.
Palate: An initially hot mouthfeel that cools quickly.
Bright, golden color with subtle oak and vanilla notes. The nose is delicate and fruity offering aromatics reminiscent of baked or grilled pineapple but is best identified as pure, baked agave. Lush caramel with layers of semi-sweet vanilla, fruit and spice evolving to subtle oak and vanilla notes. Long and creamy finish with lingering smoky and spicy notes.
Lunazul Tequila is distilled and bottled with 100% Blue Weber Agave at the Tierra de Agaves Distillery in Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico. Tierra de Agaves was founded in 2002 by Francisco Beckmann, former co-owner of Jose Cuervo, to pursue his personal goal of producing the best tequila in the world. Each of the Lunazul varieties, Blanco, Reposado, Añejo and Primero are hand-crafted and rooted in tradition. Lunazul is affordable luxury— 100% agave, hand-labeled and hand- crafted. Lunazul is Spanish for Blue Moon. It is the \”Blue Moon\” of Lunazul that beckons the spirit and independence of the majestic wolf that lives inside every tequila consumer. A single taste reveals why Lunazul is a fitting tribute to Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico, where tequila is made.
