DeLeon Tequila is a premium spirit created from natural, high quality ingredients. Although chemical coloring and synthetic flavor softeners are permitted in tequila production, DeLeon founder and CEO Brent Hocking refuses to use any of these artificial ingredients, making DeLeon the purest tequila on record, as documented by the Consejo Regulador Del Tequila (Tequila Regulatory Council). While most tequilas are distilled three to five times, DeLeon is only distilled twice to preserve the natural character of the agave.
DeLeon Tequila Anejo has been aged in 150 - 200 year old Haute Futaie French Oak for seventeen months, then finished in French Sauternes barrels from the most revered winemakers of our time. This maturation has created a round, balanced, full-flavored spirit with complex notes of butterscotch, oak, black cherry, vanilla and spice, supported by the unmistakable note of mature agave.
