Tequila and Mescal brand Nosotros has announced the release of the first-ever tequila aged in wet cider barrels, a collaboration the brand has created with 2 Towns Ciderhouse.
2 Towns Ciderhouse used former Woodford Reserve Whiskey barrels to create their “Bad Apple” cider batch. These barrels were then moved to Mexico by Nosotros for the first step in ageing this cider añejo. Nosotros Blanco was aged for 20 months using a single-barrel ageing process to create the first-ever tequila aged in wet cider barrels.
Nosotros describes this añejo as “Rich and smooth, with a candied complexion, featuring a one-of-a-kind tasting profile and production process. The experience of this añejo is a unique blend of cooked agave and warm apple, along with spicy sandalwood and nutty almond scents.”
“My cousin is the Head Cidermaker at 2 Towns Ciderhouse, which sparked this idea,” shared Michael Arbanas, Nosotros Co-Founder. “When developing our Madera Collection, it is important for us to maintain Nosotros’ additive-free process while creating unique products, and this was the perfect way to do something that has never been done in our category,” continued Carlos Soto, Nosotros Founder and CEO. “We are excited that we now get to share this perfect Autumn spirit,” finished Arbanas.
“It is so cool to be working with Nosotros on the cutting edge of innovation,” said David Takush, Head Cidermaker for 2 Towns Ciderhouse in Oregon. “Their creativity and dedication to excellence really shine through in this collaboration. I was truly amazed at my first taste of this añejo out of the barrel”.
The expression is available as a limited release, with only 1,500 individually numbered bottles available.
