Don Pilar Extra Añejo is a most extraordinary tequila. Intense, with velvet richness, sweet oak aroma, and a deep, amber-crimson color.

The label pays homage to the terroir and craft that molded the tequila—region, ranch, vintage, cask, distiller. Every bottle is approvingly signed by Don Pilar.
40 MONTHS OF DOUBLE-CASK AGING
Don Pilar’s Extra Añejo is aged in new American White Oak barrels for 36 months. Leopoldo and Gabriel—our master distillers—add a final, masterly stroke and finish aging it for an additonal four months in French Limousin Oak casks to impart a luscious fruity finish.
HAND-SIGNED, LIMITED-EDITION BOTTLING
To commemorate the uniqueness of this Extra Añejo, every bottle was individually numbered and hand-signed by Don Pilar. This first lot was limited to 10,000 bottles.
AN ODE TO TRADITION
Every bottle comes in a wooden gift box that tells the story of La Cabalgata, a Mexican tradition of horsemanship, faith and camraderie.
SHOOTING IT WOULD BE A CRIME
To experience fully, we recommend you pour this Extra Añejo in a wide-bowled snifter and sip slowly and luxuriously.
A deep, amber-crimson hue.
Complex notes of intense oak, fruit and caramel.
Layers of apricot, chocolate and baked agave.
A decadently slow finish and lingering sweet oak.
