Los Angeles-based Nosotros has released a limited edition añejo expression, said to be the first Tequila aged in wet cider barrels.
The Tequila has been launched in collaboration with American craft brewery 2 Towns Ciderhouse.
“It is so cool to be working with Nosotros on the cutting edge of innovation” said David Takush, head cider maker for 2 Towns Ciderhouse in Oregon.
“Their creativity and dedication to excellence really shines through in this collaboration. I was truly amazed at my first taste of this añejo out of the barrel.”
The bottling was created using ex-Woodford Reserve whiskey barrels to craft the brewery’s Bad Apple cider batch.
These barrels were then moved to Mexico by Nosotros Tequila for the first step in ageing the liquid.
The brand’s Nosotros Blanco Tequila was aged for 20 months using a single barrel ageing process.
Nosotros describe the liquid as being ‘rich and smooth’, with a ‘candied complexion’.
Notes include cooked agave and warm apple, along with spicy sandalwood and nutty almond scents. Only 1,500 individually numbered bottles are available to pre-order on the brand’s website, priced at US$325 per 750ml.
In 2020, Nosotros partnered with automotive and energy firm Tesla to create a namesake Tequila priced at US$250.
