Description/Tasting Notes:
1800® Cristalino is a crystal clear añejo tequila with deceptive depth, presented in a stunning crystalline bottle. 100% Weber blue agave is handpicked at its peak of maturity, aged in French and American oak barrels, married together, then finished in port wine casks. The result is an ultra-premium tequila that offers the complexity of an Añejo with the smoothness of a Blanco. Enjoy neat, on the rocks, or elevate any cocktail to celebrate life's special moments with taste.
