Bottle of Single Barrel tequila made by El Tesoro

EL TESORO SINGLE BARREL REPOSADO TEQUILA

Each cask of our Single Barrel Reposado is influenced by the unique combination of the season in which the agave is harvested and the cellar location where the tequila ages. A select number of barrels are handpicked by Carlos Camarena at peak maturity to become this special bottling from a single cask.
