El Tesoro 70th Aniversario Extra Añejo Tequila

Aged for seven years in white oak American bourbon barrels,
this limited-edition "Extra Añejo" offers a rare tequila experience.

On Saturday, July 7, 2007, we’ll reach an important milestone in the history of El Tesoro — 70 years of making tequila the authentic way at La Alteña Distillery.

I’m proud to carry on the traditions started by my grandfather, Don Felipe Camarena, seven decades ago. To celebrate his legacy, I’ll be hosting nearly 500 friends and tequila aficionados from around the world at La Alteña on July 7. On that date, I hope you’ll celebrate with us by raising a glass of El Tesoro to the pleasures of handcrafted tequila.

You've Never Tasted a Tequila Like this Before
Carlos Camarena is proud to celebrate the 70th anniversary of La Alteña with a remarkable new tequila — El Tesoro Aniversario. Aged for seven years in white oak American bourbon barrels, this limited-edition "Extra Añejo" offers a rare tequila experience.

Carlos says that El Tesoro Aniversario is "soft and sweet, with scents of chocolate and vanilla and a hint of spice. There are stronger tastes of oak with a nutty, almost almond-like flavor, and a rich agave finish."

Only 2007 cases will be handcrafted at La Alteña. This rare, once-in-a-lifetime tequila can’t be widely distributed. Only about 20,000 bottles will be available in the U.S.
