DeLeon Tequila is exclusive and premium tequila that was produced only by a wealthy Mexican family in Purisima del Rincon for decades. Their distribution network was also exclusive as the quantities produced were limited. It was only in 2008 that limited quantities of DeLeon Anejo became available in both New York and Los Angeles. It was their first foray in the US markets and the spirit was very well received by the discerning consumers.
DeLeon Anejo is double-distilled and aged in French barrels for 17 months to achieve its distinct “cognac-like” taste. It is the special touch and the differentiator for the exclusive spirit. Its packaging also highlights its exclusivity. From its skulls and snakes decorative gold-cap to the thick French glass decanter, this tequila rocks royally with attitude that is supported by its superior quality.
The quality of DeLeon Anejo has been well appreciated by the experts in the field. In a review Examiner.com’s spirits columnist Robert Haynes-Peterson has stated that DeLeon Anejo is well-balanced with hints of soft butter and white butter on the approach, and a mild, sweet jalapeno finish that leaves you craving the next sip. The 750 ml bottle of DeLeon Anejo has been priced at $175.
