Luxury Spirits: The 1800 Colección is perhaps the most tediously prepared tequila ever produced. It is not released annually as a commemorative or as a tributary gesture to celebrate the anniversary of the manufacturer, and it is neither a marketing machination nor a promotional ploy. The singular purpose of 1800 Tequila's release of this extraordinary drink is to celebrate a batch worthy of
presenting to connoisseurs who savor tequila. The company unabashedly proclaims that the 1800 Colección is the finest of the best tequila available on Earth without exception.
It is meticulously made from agaves that are minimally aged for 10 years. The final product is drawn from the
best blends of aged tequila over the years, resulting in a mellow tasting, smooth blend with an underlying hint of almond and vanilla that teasingly tantalizes the palate. The unique qualities that accompany each 1800 Colección are enhanced by an original label design for each release. The renowned Alejandro Colunga was selected to do the honors for the most recent pewter-and-glass decanter. The price of the stupendous and limited 1800 Colección is $1,800.
Silver, Reposado, and Añejo are the trio of fine tequilas offered by the company. This prestigious distiller also makes the Ultimate Margarita mix. All three tequila brands received the 2006 Hot Brand Award Impact issued by the San Francisco World Spirits Competition along with two silvers and a bronze award for the same year. Spirits remain distinctively high with the presence of 1800 Tequila.
