2020 June 3

CHICAGO, IL (June 3, 2020) – Corazón Tequila’s Expresiones Sazerac Rye Añejo was named Best Añejo at the 2020 World Tequila Awards. Three additional Corazón Tequilas were also awarded medals.

Corazón Extra Añejo and Corazón Reposado each received Gold medals, and Expresiones del Corazón Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Rye Añejo received a Silver medal.

“It’s a true honor for our tequilas to be recognized so highly, and to be deemed World’s Best añejo. We feel incredibly thankful,” Agave Marketing Director Megan Hurtuk said. “Our partners at Casa San Matías continually strive to produce the highest quality spirits, and these awards are a true testament to their craftsmanship and dedication.”

Tequilas and mezcals are submitted from around the world each year for the annual World Tequila Awards, which is judged by an international panel of industry experts. The taste competition, which is traditionally conducted in London, was judged remotely this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The judging process for this competition takes place in three rounds. First, each tequila is tasted by category and given a placement. In the second round, the “Best” tequila from each category is compared via taste. The third round repeats the second round, and finally the World’s Best Tequila is named.
