A superlative sipping tequila that astonished me the first time I tried it. After a two year quest, we were able to locate a source for The Wine Country. This rich, aged tequila was originally created by Ravandi for his personal collection. In 2014 he released 1,000 bottles and, since then, it has become a limited, annual release of just 2,500 bottles. Diablito begins its journey in the iron-rich Tierra Roja soils of a pristine estate that we’ve designated solely for the allocated production of 123 Organic Extra Añejo. Like intensely expressive wines that are grown at high elevations, the extreme growing conditions found on our estate in Jalisco’s Amatitan region produce complex, exceptionally-flavored tequila that is ideally suited to lengthy aging. In the pursuit of perfection it’s often said “the devil is in the details,” a sentiment that captures the singular spirit of 123 Organic Extra Añejo (Diablito).
