The tequila he choose was double barrel and aged for 11 months in a white oak American barrel, then the tequila was removed from that barrel to a new white oak American barrel that was toasted inside and aged for an extra month. Photo by Jipsy
Then it’s removed and exclusively bottled, hand written for The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne and delivered to the property. There were 250 bottles created from Heriberto’s selected barrel. Photo by Jipsy
