Tapatio is the partnership between Marko Karakasevic of Charbay Distillery in northern California with Master Distiller Carlos Camarena at La Alteña distillery in Jalisco. Excelencia was distilled in 1996 and aged in Char no. 4 new American oak for four years. Here’s where it gets crazy – then it was rested in 5 liter glass vessels before bottling in 2013. Spirits can’t evolve in glass, you say? Well, agave breaks all the rules. Note: pricing is for liter sized bottle.
