Cutwater’s Award-Winning Spirits Now Include A Whiskey-Aged Añejo Tequila

Nov 24, 2020

First founded in 2007 as an offshoot from Ballast Point Brewing, Cutwater Spirits has since made a name for itself through a diverse alcohol portfolio that includes over 20 different spirits and a line of premium canned cocktails. With its Tequila Reposado having recently taken awards such as Tequila of the Year and Best of Class and Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, Cutwater is keen to keep the momentum going, announcing the third installment in its tequila lineup.

Cutwater’s new release is a take on the Añejo variety, a type of aged tequila with a complex flavor perfect for sipping. Made from 100% blue agave, Cutwater’s Añejo is first slow-cooked in traditional brick ovens before it’s open fermented and then double distilled in “alambique” stills. Afterward, it’s aged in Cutwater’s own whiskey barrels for over a year, where it takes on notes of caramel and bourbon vanilla. The result is a rich amber Tequila that comes in at 40% ABV, full of oak flavors but still retaining plenty of floral agave presence. Bottled at the Orendain family distillery in Jalisco Mexico, the label features a Rayador skull inspired by Mexican folklore. On sale now for $50.
