About Corzo: The Blanco is an exceptionally elegant and flavorful tequila with notes of citrus and vanilla, best enjoyed as a sipping tequila or when prepared with the highest quality mixers. The Reposado and Anejo are the only tequilas to be mellowed prior to a third distillation, a unique method requiring twice the amount of premium agave as most brands. The result is a remarkable tequila with the perfect balance of flavor and smoothness. Demonstrating a commitment to excellence unprecedented in its category, Corzo Tequila symbolizes a progressive step into the new world of contemporary luxury spirits.
