Casa San Matias
With over 120 years of experience and tradition, Casa San Matías produces some of the world’s finest tequilas. These expressions are made from only the best blue agave, harvested from the rich soil of the Los Altos de Jalisco region, and distilled with the purest spring water. The outcomes are unique tequilas that preserve the legacy of flavor and quality at Casa San Matías.
Casa San Matías was founded in 1886 by Don Delfino González in Magdalena, a small town located west of Tequila, Jalisco. In the 1950s a new distillery was opened in Ojo de Agua, at altitudes above 6,000 feet. The fruitful grounds of Los Altos de Jalisco provide some of the purest spring water in the region. This allows the distillery to produce a wide variety of superior tasting tequilas, all from 100% blue agave. Today, the leadership of Casa San Matías is bestowed in Ms. Carmen Villarreal, the world’s only female distillery head, who leads her team in creating the best tequilas in the region which satisfy the most demanding consumers.
San Matías Gran Reserva Extra Añejo is aged for three years in French white oak barrels. The results are an exquisite flavor of toasted seeds and a bright amber color. This tequila is for a grand occasion, and is a great aperitif. To get the full flavor try it with plain chocolate.
Tasting note: Aged three years, this extra añejo features flavors of burnt orange peel, apple pie, pears and spiced warm cotton candy.
