El Mayor Extra Añejo Bourbon Barrel Aged Tequila is now available at retail locations across the U.S., parent company Luxco announced.

The ultra-premium tequila, which celebrates El Mayor’s 25th anniversary, is distilled from Blue Weber agave and aged for 39 months in American Oak bourbon barrels. Distilled and produced at Destiladora Gonzalez Lux in Arandas, Mexico, this ultra-premium tequila has a limited allocation of 6,000 bottles and is offered at a suggested retail price of $129.99 per 750-ml. bottle.

“We wanted to do something special for this year’s limited-edition offering to showcase the craft of great tequila making, while paying homage to the brand’s 25th anniversary,”  Graciela Gonzalez, fourth-generation distiller and daughter of Rodolfo Gonzalez, master distiller at Destiladora Gonzalez Lux, said in a news release. “My father carefully hand-selected 25 barrels of some of El Mayor’s oldest stock to create our 25th Anniversary Extra Añejo Tequila. The result is a smooth and well-balanced tequila with hints of oak, dried fruit and baking spices on the nose and palate. It’s a spectacular expression that is sure to entice and impress bourbon and tequila drinkers alike.”

As with every bottle of El Mayor, this limited-edition tequila is made with 100% estate-grown, hand-cut Blue Weber agave from the valley area of Jalisco, Mexico.

“This product is ideal for consumers who value quality over quantity and continue to seek out delicious, ultra-premium tequilas,” said Chelsi Hofmeister, brand manager for El Mayor. “El Mayor Extra Añejo Bourbon Barrel Aged won’t be around for long as tequila and bourbon aficionados discover the rich complexity of this special extra Añejo tequila.”

The El Mayor 25th Anniversary Extra Añejo Bourbon Barrel Aged bottle features a silver label and embossed detail around the neck. It is packaged in an attractive black box with silver markings that complement the label.
