The Oak Barrel is pleased to present our first Tequila tasting of the year and we're getting the ball rolling with one of Mexico's best kept secrets; El Tequileño. The distillery was founded in 1959 by the legendary Don Jorge Salles Cuervo, who named it in honour of the birthplace of Tequila. 

El Tequileño became renowned throughout Mexico for their superior quality Tequila that was produced with no additives and lack of chill or coal filtration. More than 60 years later, it is still made in the same place, with the same recipe, by the same family. In 2018 Don Jorge's son, Juan Antonio Salles was awarded the title of Gran Tequilero by Mexico's National Chamber of Tequila; one of only four people to ever have this title bestowed unto them. 



One of the highlights of the tasting is the incredible, 6-year-old El Tequileño Reposado Rare, the first "Reposado Rare" in the world. With an age which dwarfs most Extra Añejos, the Reposado Rare was matured for 6 years 4 months in a large pipon American oak barrel. This extensive and undisturbed rest in wood, created an amazing tequila with rich complexity and exceptional depth & character.

The evening will be hosted by CNV Liquor Managing Director, Nick Chappell, who will educate us about Tequila, regale us with stories and of course walk us through this incredible line-up of El Tequileño Tequila.
