Production notes

AGED 18 MONTHS IN VIRGIN AMERICAN WHITE OAK

The distinctive golden color and buttery, oak aroma of Don Pilar's Añejo comes as a result of aging his tequila in virgin American White Oak barrels.

the mozart method of fermentation

Our master distillers insist on serenading the must with Baroque music during the 200 hours of fermentation to coax the conversion from sugar-to-alcohol.

Estate-grown Agave

Don Pilar grows his agave on five private ranches in the Highlands of Jalisco near the town of San José de Gracia.

A Sipping Tequila

Don Pilar Añejo goes great in a margarita, but to truly enjoy, try it neat in a Reidel tequila glass or similarly shaped flute.
