Siembra Azul, or “Blue Harvest” is a small-batch, artisanal, tequila crafted from only the finest blue agave in the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico, harvested from deep red, mineral-rich soil. The enriched agave elevates the flavor profile of the tequila, yielding a fresh spirit bursting with agave notes.
Being grown at such high elevations produces agave with longer lifespans and richly complex starches that yield higher sugar contents. Some Blue Weber Agave can weigh up to 200 lbs and take nearly a decade to mature.
Every step of production of Siembra Azul tequila is meticulously monitored, led by David Suro-Piñera, the goal of Sienbre Azul is to promote transparency and awareness about this incredibly complex desert agave. The Siembra Azul portfolio consists of their Blanco Lot 5 Anejo, Reposado 10 yr Anniversary, Extra Añejo Suro, and Single Barrel Extra Añejo Elisa, as well as their collector’s Extra Anejo Pinera.
This single release, limited edition Siembra Azul Suro Extra Añejo is rested for five years in proprietary 75-year-old American Ozark white oak barrels. Crafted from 7-12-year-old Blue Agave, you can expect subtle notes of herbs and spices, floral accents and fruits like apricot and citrus.
