Sauza Tres Anejo Tequila

Sauza Tres
100% Puro de Agave
Añejo Tequila


By Robert Plotkin

Crafting 100% agave tequila is a labor-and-time-intensive process. Ounce for ounce, it's comparable in quality to vintage malts and well-aged cognac. Yet it only takes a moment to appreciate why these rich and vibrant spirits are so tremendously popular and why one of the most enduring of these brands is Sauza Tres Generaciones 100% Puro de Agave Añejo Tequila.

Produced at La Perseverancia, the Sauza distillery, in the historic town of Tequila; this super-premium añejo is double-distilled in copper alembic stills and then aged for a minimum of 3-years in 180-liter, white oak barrels. The craftsmanship necessary to make this tequila alone places it with an elite few.

For all of its accolades, Tres Generaciones Añejo is an understated tequila. Its easy-to-enjoy character is accessible to nearly any palate. The tequila has a pale golden color and a seamlessly smooth texture. Its floral bouquet has notes of earthy agave, caramel and spice. Tres Generaciones fills the mouth slowly but surely, delivering a palate amply endowed with the flavors of citrus, pepper and toasted oak. The tequila finishes warm and satisfying.

The newest member of the successful "3 G's" franchise is Sauza Tres Generaciones® 100% Agave Reposado Tequila, a highly sophisticated spirit with a lightweight body and an alluring floral, citrus and spice bouquet. Its palate is brimming with warm, bakery fresh flavors, such as cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. The finish is long, peppery and seductive.
