According to Trianon:
OUR BLANCO IS THE SECRET TO OUR AÑEJO.

Our family takes great care to make each of our tequilas the same way we have for generations—by hand. We think that’s the only way to make tequila that captures the true taste of blue agave. So, that’s what you’ll find in every bottle of Trianon: True agave taste with a smooth and satisfying finish. Try all three expressions of Trianon and discover the true taste of tequila for yourself.

We age our Blanco a full eighteen months in specially made American and French oak barrels to make Trianon Añejo. Because that’s how long it takes to strike the perfect balance between the taste of oak and agave. We could stop at 12 months like other makers—but by now you know that’s not the Trianon way. Aging longer allows the oak’s rich flavor to reach its full expression, perfectly complimenting the true agave taste of our tequila. With its warm, amber color and sweet aroma, our Añejo is best savored neat.

“If you’re looking for a tequila with personality and depth, look no further than Trianon Tequila.  This is an unabashedly unadulterated, old school tequila for true tequila lovers.” ~Lisa Pietsch, Tequila Aficionado 

Trianon Tequila Anejo

Trianon tequila prides itself on using no automated equipment instead choosing traditional, batch distillation methods to produce their tequila. Theirs is an estate tequila in that they grown their own agave in the volcanic soil of Amatitan in Jalisco.

Sipping Off The Cuff: Trianon Reposado Tequila

So, that’s what you’ll find in every bottle of Trianon: True agave taste with a smooth and satisfying finish. Try all three expressions of Trianon and discover the true taste of tequila for yourself.

The remarkable success of our Reposado is owed to beginning with our uncompromising Blanco. The transformation occurs when we rest our Blanco in specially made American and French Oak barrels for six months—four months longer than Mexican law requires. The result is a true agave taste and smoothness combined with complex notes of aged oak.
