The slender, blue bottle of Tequila Corralejo Reposado has been an iconic favorite for ages, thanks to its double distillation and aging process in American oak barrels. But no bar is complete without the flavors of Corralejo’s Tequila Blanco (clear with citrus and herbal notes) and Tequila Anejo (golden, aged 12 months).
For a different kind of tequila tasting, try cocktails like The Wrangler and Blood Orange Margarita, switching out the recommended tequila with each in the Tequila Corralejo trio -- Silver, Anejo, and Reposado in the red, white, and blue bottles. We were surprised to discover the variety of aromas and mouth-finishes that best suited our palette.
