About Verdadero: This ultra-premium tequila is made from 100% Blue Agave from both the highlands and lowlands of Jalisco, Mexico to encapsulate master distilling and harvesting at its truest and best. By combining agave from two distinct altitudes, the Tequilas are smooth with clear complexity and finish with light vanilla and citrus undertones. The spirit is further refined from the thorough small-batch production process while aged in American Oak barrels. https://verdaderotequila.com/
