Hornitos® Black Barrel® Tequila takes a premium aged Añejo tequila and then ages it two more times in traditional whiskey ways to deliver a superior tequila with complex whiskey notes. We start with 100% pure agave tequila and age it for 12 months in specially toasted oak barrels to create a premium Añejo tequila. It is then moved into deep charred barrels for 4 months, where it starts to pick up whiskey notes. The third aging takes place when the liquid is transferred to toasted oak barrels for 2 additional months to instill a smooth whiskey finish. Award winning Hornitos® Black Barrel® is redefining the tequila experience.
