Ultimate Beverage Challenge 90 points - Somewhat chunky on the nose with assertive earthy notes alongside creamy custard. Incredibly clean in the mouth, flavors favoring the sweeter side of things with citrus spiked custard, vanilla and young green grass. Light, airy and refreshing. (Mar 2015)
Corralejo Blanco is bottled directly off the distillery217;s copper pots. Don Leonardo, the founder of Corralejo Tequila, refers to it as ”The Truth” because it magnificently captures the authentic character of the Blue Weber Agave, the plant which all our tequilas are made from.
|Tequila Corralejo exemplifies Central Mexico’s rich culture, heritage and vibrant lifestyle. Produced in Guanajuato, Mexico since 1775, Corralejo’s deep roots and unique production methods are renowned in the Tequila industry. Made from only the finest handpicked agave, Tequila Corralejo is truly authentic, full of flavor and unsurpassed in quality and personality.
All of our tequilas are made with 100% Blue Weber agave, and then slow cooked the old-fashioned way in stone clay ovens for 27 hours to capture the full flavor of the agave hearts.
Once the sweet juice of the Agave (mosto) has fermented we employ the 400 year old ”Charentais” method of distillation which has been perfected by the French in distilling cognac, which allows for our exceptional retention of the agave aroma and flavor found in every bottle of Corralejo.
