Hornitos® Black Barrel® Tequila is a super smooth, triple aged, 100% agave tequila uniquely aged to embark distinct and complex whiskey notes. The tequila starts with 100% agave Hornitos® Tequila, which is aged in traditional American Oak barrels for 12 months. Once the soft, smooth, complex flavor of the Añejo tequila has been achieved, the liquid is placed in deeply charred American Oak barrels for four months to ensure that the tequila breathes through the caramelized layer of sugar, imparting the rich character, golden amber color and smoky notes traditionally found in whiskey. Lastly, the tequila is aged in specially-toasted American Oak barrels for two months to impart a creamier, vanilla character to add depth and complexity to the final spirit. Easy to drink and unforgettably smooth, Hornitos® Black Barrel® Tequila was the most highly awarded tequila of 2016*.

*Based on collective awards won in 16 major spirits competitions in 2016
