1800 Tequila debuts 1800 GuachiMonton

The first añejo finished in orange tequila liqueur casks honours the shared terroir of the Tequila Valley and the UNESCO World Heritage site Los Guachimontones

1800 Tequila, the world’s most awarded tequila brand, cements its status as the world’s number one super-premium tequila with the release of 1800 GuachiMonton: the first luxury añejo tequila aged in American and French Oak barrels and finished in orange tequila liqueur casks. Honouring the legacy and agriculture of the Tequila Valley, 1800 GuachiMonton is presented in a red ceramic trapezoidal-shaped keepsake bottle with a distinctively made wooden circular cap, inspired by the pyramids and red clay found throughout the UNESCO World Heritage site of Los Guachimontones.

1800 GuachiMonton is crafted starting with 100 per cent Blue Weber agave, grown and matured between six to eight years and sourced from a single estate in the lowlands regions of the Tequila Valley. The harvested agave is cooked for 40 hours in masonry ovens, distilled twice and then matured in both American and French Oak barrels for a minimum of 12 months. The golden amber Añejo liquid is then married together and finished in casks that once held orange tequila liqueur, creating a well-structured and complex tequila with a fresh citrus finish.

Inspired by the jewel of Jalisco, Los Guachimontones, the red bottle and wooden cap take shape from the circular pyramids dating back to before the Hispanic era, where communities would gather for ceremonial rituals. To protect and preserve this shared heritage, 1800 Tequila will be providing long-term support to conserve the UNESCO site, its museum and the cultural, art and educational initiatives tied to the area.
