Fuenteseca Reserva Extra Añejo 15 Year

About Fuenteseca Tequila

Enrique Fonseca began experimenting with aging extra añejo tequilas back in the early 2000’s and not only varies the time the Tequila rests, but the types of barrels and altitudes in which they do so. From the traditional American and French oak barrels to used bourbon casks, or wine barrels, Enrique has created some of the most unique aged tequilas available.  The Fuenteseca line starts at a minimum of 7 years and reaches all the way up to 21 years. Given that blue weber agave takes 8-10 years to mature to be used to make tequila, these expressions can take nearly 30 years to produce.

Why we love Fuenteseca 15 Year Extra Añejo

  • Agaves for this expression were harvested in Atotonilco el Alto just before the arrival of the 1998 summer rains.  Due to the heavy rains of the El Niño storms in the previous years, the ratio of sugar to water in the plants was lower, resulting in a delicate sweetness. 
  • 3% of the harvested lot was laid into French oak while the remaining portion spent the 15 years of aging, in American white oak, in a dry, earthen room.
  • 100% agave, Verified Additive Free by Tequila Matchmaker
  • Each Fuenteseca release becomes a collector or treasure bottle 
  • 86 proof / 43% ABV
  • NOM 1146 / Tequileña / Tequila, Jalisco
  • Bottle Size: 750mL
