Tradicional Añejo is a premium tequila matured for more than 12 months in new American oak barrels. The añejo spirit is then finished for up to four months in Irish single malt whiskey barrels to create a unique and complex añejo tequila.
The Irish Aitall is a delicious fusion of these Mexican and Irish influences.
