Hornitos® Black Barrel® The Most Highly Awarded Tequila of 2014
Triple aged to create a uniquely complex tequila with whiskey characteristics, the newest premium offering from Hornitos® is aged first for 12 months in American Oak barrels before transitioning into deep charred American Oak barrels for four months. In the final aging process, the liquid is transferred to specially-toasted American Oak barrels for two additional months to further enhance the whiskey- like notes of this one-of-a-kind premium tequila. Prior to hitting shelves, Hornitos® Black Barrel® quickly became an award- winning tequila with accolades at international spirits competitions. Hornitos® Black Barrel® won the 2014 Best of Show Award and received Double Gold honors at the 2014 International Denver Spirit Awards. The spirit also won a Double Gold award at the San Francisco Wine & Spirits Competition.
