GinQuila Añejo Single Barrel is Skeptic's GinQuila but aged for between 1-3 years and bottled at 92.6 proof. To create GinQuila, the distillery infuses fresh, hand selected ingredients into their corn base spirit for at least seven days. These ingredients include fresh papaya, lemon zest, orange zest, lime zest, grapefruit zest, arbol peppers, chipotle peppers, fresh thyme, cinnamon and juniper berries. This infusion is then cold distilled at 60 degrees Fahrenheit, proofed down to barrel strength, then rested in former tequila barrels for between 1 to 3 years before bottling from an individual barrel. ​ 

Tasting Notes: The aromas are reminiscent of gin, including subtle juniper, earthy botanicals and citrus with vanilla, cinnamon and oaky tequila. The taste is similar to GinQuila, but more intense and with more oak and agave character. Spice hits the tongue first, and then it shifts completely as it opens up with notes of lemon, butterscotch and creamy vanilla, all giving a distinct sense of oaky tequila. As these notes fade, the botanical gin notes come back into focus and then it leaps to a complex finish including dark cocoa and licorice elements. Quite different from what many have come to expect from barrel aged gins, GinQuila Añejo Single Barrel is as versatile and even more nuanced than GinQuila. The vacuum distillation treatment makes this spirit exceptionally smooth and bursting with complex citrus, spice and tequila flavor.

Cocktails: Ideally drank neat, or with fresh ruby red grapefruit juice, soda and citrus garnish. The resulting GinQuila is extremely versatile, lending a delicious and inspiring twist to any traditional gin or tequila cocktail, and providing a canvas for entirely new cocktails altogether!
