Alquimia Reserva de Don Adolfo Extra Añejo Tequila

This extra anejo (“extra aged”) tequila is aged for longer than three years in small oak barrels to create a spicy, herbal flavor and a golden color.  Some have described the flavor of this tequila as “cognac-like,” making it a perfect sipping tequila at $125 per bottle.

Because this tequila is aged for not quite three years, it doesn’t technically count as extra anejo.  The light amber color and fiery spiciness balances an almost creamy finish.  You can find this tequila from $160 per bottle.

Gran Patrón Platinum

This triple-distilled tequila is made from Weber blue agave and aged in oak barrels for at least a year.  The fresh, smooth flavored tequila is in a crystal bottle that matches its luxury flavor.  Expect to pay about $210 per bottle.

Because this tequila is aged for such an extremely long time — 60 months in French oak casks — the tequila has a sweet caramel flavor.  This extra anejo tequila is also distinctive for its singular bottle shape and has a price tag of $240 per bottle.

Casa Dragones Tequila Joven

The most expensive tequila on our list features traditionally-produced, extra anejo tequila that has been distilled multiple times.  The high quality tequila is in hand blown glass bottles with hand-numbered, signed labels.  This is a collector’s tequila that you should savor and sells for $302 per bottle.
