It’s not a liqueur, or flavored tequila, or a coffee-infused spirit, it’s a highly innovative 100% agave reposado tequila that is aged in oak barrels that were conditioned with artisan-roasted organic coffee from Chiapas, Mexico, to impart a distinctively bold taste and aroma naturally from the barrels.
