About Cincoro Tequila, @CincoroTequila
In July 2016, five friendly rivals met for dinner and bonded over their shared passion for tequila. After many more adventures together, this group of five founding partners set out with one mission: to create the finest tequila anyone has ever tasted. Cincoro Tequila is uniquely made with 100% Weber Blue agave from both the highland and lowland regions of Jalisco, Mexico. The agave is hand-selected and slow-cooked in a small batch process, distilling the highland and lowland tequilas separately, before blending them together to create the Cincoro signature taste profile. This is the heart of Cincoro: a naturally rich and delicious family of tequilas that are smooth on the palate with a complex, long finish. Cincoro Tequila is a taste experience unlike any other. The Cincoro family portfolio offers four award-winning tequila expressions, Blanco (unaged), Reposado (aged 8 to 10 months), Anejo (aged 24 to 28 months) and Extra Anejo (aged 40 to 44 months).
