Fraternity Spirits,Corralejo Tequila

Founded in 1775, Hacienda Corralejo was the first estate in Mexico to produce tequila commercially, and for nearly 250 years their methods have remained the same. 100% Agave, copper-pot stills, aged inFrench Limousin oak. Layers of complex flavors satisfy even the most discerning tequila connoisseur.

The Master distillers atFraternity Spiritsselect the precise time to end the distillation and move the tequila to “rest” in French Limousin oak barrels – the same barrels renowned for developing the world’s finest wines and Cognacs. The result is a harmonious tequila with exceptional strength, balance and an ultra-smooth finish.This fine tequila is then poured into a unique hand-blown glass bottle and hand-signed by eachMaster distiller.

Corralejo Tequila Blanco | Blanco is a new tequila taken straight from the still. Made entirely from carefully selected agaves, many purists and tequila aficionados claim that Blanco Tequila is the best. It’s true, there is no barrel ageing to soften or disguise the rich, powerful Agave flavor.

Corralejo Tequila Reposado | The most popular tequila has been awarded three Gold Medals in international competition in the past five years! Under Mexican law, Reposado (“reposed”) tequila has to age in wood barrels for a minimum of two months.

Corralejo Tequila Triple Distilled | All fine tequilas are produced by using a double distillation method. In the year 2000, Fraternity Spiritsintroduced a new type :Triple Distilled, and gradually offered it to discerning consumers in the Mexican market. Sales have been no less then phenomenal! Theunique Corralejo “Triple” is distilled first through a copper pot still, then a column still method and finally through the copper pot one more time. Simply put, Triple Distilled is superb tequila!

Corralejo Tequila Añejo | Añejo means aged. The minimum ageing period for this highly distinctive tequila is one year. Usingonly French Oak barrels to produce the softest Añejo tequila possible, it is offered in its distinctive red bottle Corralejo Añejo is the finest example of the tequila distiller’s art and skills.
