This unique aging combination imparts unparalleled depth and complexity to the tequila. The re- charred American oak contributes a robust and smoky character, while the brief embrace of the French wine casks adds a nuanced layer of refinement, infusing hints of delicate sweetness and oak. Remarkably, Tequila Cayéya's aging duration totals 11.5 months, with this expression coming just two weeks shy of reaching the esteemed status of an añejo. This stands as a testament to the meticulous artistry that goes into creating this exceptional spirit.
Each bottle bears the distinction of a designated barrel and batch number, and the signature of our esteemed Female Master Destiladora, Zandra Gomez.
As you bring the glass to your nose, a captivating aroma wafts from the distillate. The initial impression is one of toasted vanilla and caramel, a testament to its time spent in re-charred American oak. The familiar scent of oak intertwines with notes of toffee and butterscotch, creating a luscious and inviting bouquet. As the aromas evolve, a subtle floral character emerges, reminiscent of dried flowers and spice, a result of the final aging phase in French oak.
The first sip reveals a harmonious interplay between the oak-driven flavors and the spirit's inherent character. A wave of creamy vanilla and rich caramel coats the palate, showcasing the influence of the re-charred American oak. The oak imparts notes of toasted coconut and a hint of smokiness, further enhancing the complexity. As the flavors develop, a gentle spice emerges, carrying hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove, adding depth and warmth to the taste profile.
The mid-palate showcases the distinct influence of the French oak. Delicate floral notes mingle with subtle undertones of dried fruits, such as figs and raisins. This secondary aging in French oak lends an elegant touch, providing a refined and nuanced layer of flavor. The interplay between the American and French oak creates a captivating symphony of tastes.
The finish is long and satisfying, with the oak's presence gracefully receding, allowing the distillate's essence to shine through.

A gentle spice returns, leaving a warming sensation that encourages contemplation and another sip.
