Tequila Corrido Añejo
Tequila Corrido Añejo is a single-barrel añejo made from what we call a triple-barrel process. The Triple-Barreling process is identical to our Reposado "Double-Barrel" except we complete the aging process with a special proprietary third finishing barrel. We start to sample the final finishing barrel at 12 months and when it has met its desired taste profile and complexity, we bottle immediately. We age our Añejo to the "Taste Not Time" method, which is to say our Añejo tells us when it is ready. This is more costly, as CRT must be notified each time we open a barrel, but that's one of the extra steps we're willing to take to make our Anejo unique.
Similar to a Ballad, the Corrido is a musical form developed in Mexico, and specifically rose from a "Border Culture" along the Lower Rio Grande region, primarily between the mid 1800s and the 1930s. The Corrido became known as "musica de la frontera" (border music) because it was especially popular along the U.S.-Mexico border regions.
