"Produced in the highlands of Purisima del Rincon, DeLeon Tequila is a premium spirit created from natural, high quality ingredients. Although chemical coloring and synthetic flavor softeners are permitted in tequila production, DeLeon founder and CEO Brent Hocking refuses to use any of these artificial ingredients, making DeLeon the purest tequila on record, as documented by the Consejo Regulador Del Tequila (Tequila Regulatory Council). While most tequilas are distilled three to five times, DeLeon is only distilled twice to preserve the natural character of the agave.
"Matured for thirty four months in French Sauternes barrels, DeLeon "Leona" Tequila Reserva is the crown jewel of the DeLeon portfolio. On par with the finest cognacs and rare scotches, Leona is a powerful, intense spirit offering complex notes of dried fruit, caramel, honey, citrus, vanilla and oak, supported by rich flavors of mature agave. Leona is presented in a limited edition black box and accompanied by a striking python flask." —producer
