Teremana tequila recently announced the launch of Teremana Añejo, which is available in limited quantities. Founded by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson together with co-owners and business partners Ken Austin, Jenna Fagnan, Dany Garcia and the Lopez family from Jalisco, Mexico; Teremana Añejo joins Teremana’s blanco and reposado tequilas.
Teremana Añejo is made using only fully mature blue weber agave from the Jalisco Highlands, slow roasted in small traditional brick ovens, and distilled in handmade copper pot stills. Following this process, Teremana Añejo is placed into American Whiskey barrels to age. Each bottle of Teremana Añejo is dipped by hand in black wax before being hand packaged at the brand’s distillery, Destileria Teremana De Agave, in the small highland town of Jesus Maria in Jalisco. The exclusive distillery was built together with the Lopez family, who are experts in the tradition of agave growing and tequila making.
For Founder Dwayne Johnson, Teremana Añejo marks a milestone in his tequila journey, which was over ten years in the making. “It is with enormous pride that we reveal Teremana Añejo, a spirit that we’ve been waiting patiently for since well before we announced the launch of Teremana last year. Teremana Añejo is made the right way – with respect and mana. My master distilling team and I finally feel that our añejo is aged to perfection and is ready to be bottled up and delivered. I’m so excited for you all to finally taste it and continue to enjoy the Tequila of The People!”
GSN’s Remarks: A dark character, that is full of self assurance and vigor. We really enjoyed the effect that the ex-whiskey cask aging had on this spirit. Lending a sweetness, and familiar chewiness, this tequila has a lot going on. First a lot of wood, creating a tight and dry entry, then switching to a patina of sweet, yet oaky intensity. There are some notes of butterscotch, caramel and vanilla, but mostly a plethora of wood stave, lending a spicy and toasty sensation on the palate. Definitely designed for sipping, we recommend serving over single large rock of ice. GSN Rating: B+
