Cutwater Spirits launched Cutwater Tequila Añejo, the latest addition to its spirits portfolio. Although Cutwater Spirits is predominantly known for its line of canned cocktails, Cutwater also produces 20 bottled spirits. Cutwater’s bottled tequilas are additive-free and crafted from 100 percent blue agave that is slow cooked in traditional brick ovens, open fermented then double distilled on a custom-designed “alambique” still made of stainless steel and copper, it says. For Cutwater’s aged tequilas, the liquid is then rested in Cutwater whiskey barrels that are shipped from its San Diego distillery to Jalisco. The Añejo emerges with a rich amber hue and complex notes of oak, caramel and bourbon vanilla, it says. Cutwater Tequila Añejo is available for a suggested retail price of $49.99.
