Los Azulejos | Masterpiece Extra Añejo Heroes

$198.00

The Heroes Masterpiece Collection began as a series of limited edition collectors for the fall of 2009. The first collection presents 6 different paintings on the bottle, which are inspired by the work of Pablo Picasso. Picasso is possibly the most recognizable painter of the 20th century. Each bottle has the same design and paint on both sides and is hand painted by Mexican artisans in Puebla, Mexico, home to Talavera ceramics.

This is produced in Jalisco, the heart of tequila country. This is the three year aged expression of this particular line. The others being Blaco, and Reposado and Anejo. Distilled in stainless steel stills, a bright taste Lowland tequila. Los Azulejos Picasso Masterpiece Series Extra Añejo Tequila is the most complex and refined. With butterscotch and caramel undertones it’s ideal for sipping. Try it in a snifter glass like you’d use for Cognac or brandy.
