35: Sierra Milenario Fumado Tequila

German spirits producer Borco has expanded its Sierra Milenario Tequila range with a new smoky expression, made using a “unique” ahumado process with mesquite wood.

After slowly cooking the agave in stainless steel ovens for 24 hours, the cooked agave is placed in a lidded stainless steel container with a double base containing perforations.

A fire of mesquite logs and Mexican oak is lit under the container and the perforations allow the interaction and infusion of the smoke onto the agaves for eight hours.
