Charbay Tequila

Miles has released 120 bottles from his personal library - when they're gone, they're gone!

Only 1,700 cases of this elegant spirit were released in 2009. We've been begging Marko and Miles to make more ever since!

100% Blue Agave from the Highlands of Jalisco, in Arandas, MX. 
GPS Plantation Coordinates™ 20° 37" 47.37'N  102° 09" 20.25'W. To see the plantation site where Charbay Tequila is grown, go to http://earth.google.com 

Personally double distilled by Miles & Marko Karakasevic at La Alteña Distillery.

Distillers' Notes: "This is a fragrant, true to the source, clean tequila. From all of the world's distilled spirit classes, Tequila is by far one of the most challenging. We combined traditional methods of classic tequila distillation with our proprietary Charbay distilling techniques that have been developing for 13 generations."  - Miles Karakasevic

Marko writes: "During the final distillation at 142 proof, our tequila tasted as if you were chewing on fresh chamomile buds. Later, at 140 proof, it started to taste like cinnamon. At 138 proof, the flavors were of herbaceous, rich agave, with a pepper spice finish. We captured all these flavors."

95 Points, Kara Newman, Wine Enthusiast
"... The flavor is sweet and smooth, with light citrus notes and a faintly spicy, warming finish.

"FOUR STARS/HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, Paul Pacult's Spirit Journal

"Perfectly clean and pure... delicately herbal; midpalate continues the elegance found on the nose and at entry as the flavor profile features impeccably clean distillate, gentle spiciness, and a soft, almost plump, sap-like sweetness as the midpalate advances into the aftertaste. One of the most graceful and understated blancos to come my way..."

 

BarMedia Reviews by Robert Plotkin
"...Charbay — Having already conquered vodka and rum, Charbay and the indomitable Karakasevic family ventured to Arandas and created an Olympic caliber 100% agave tequila. Their Blanco is lush, vital and sensational."
