El Mayor Tequila has launched El Mayor Cristalino, a clear añejo tequila.
“To achieve the crystal-clear brilliance, we filtered our añejo tequila using ultra-fine charcoal,” explains Graciela González, fourth-generation distiller and daughter of Master Distiller Rodolfo González at Destiladora González González. “This process creates a Cristalino tequila that has the complexity and character of an añejo, with the crisp, bright notes and color of a blanco expression.”
As with every bottle of El Mayor, Cristalino is made with estate-grown, 100% blue agave from the lowlands of Jalisco. Aged a minimum of 12 months, El Mayor Cristalino has flavors of cooked agave with oak notes, hints of vanilla, fruity undertones and a finish of herbal and citrus notes, the company reports.
El Mayor Cristalino is 40% ABV. It is available nationally for the suggested retail price of $39.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
