Again here, you pays your money and you takes your choice: sumptuously powerful, oak-enriched Tequilas such as Jose Cuervo Reserva de la Familia, with (at least) five years of age; or the dangerously smooth and easy-drinking Ocho Extra Añejo – which spends exactly three years and a day in oak. For a different spin – and, for Tequila, a hefty price-tag – there’s Gran Patrón Piedra Extra Añejo from the pioneer of luxury Tequila. This Altos Tequila is made using the traditional tahona (a stone wheel) crushing process and matured for three years in a mix of new American and French oak.
