You may have mixed feelings about identifying as a black sheep. But if your goal is to be who you were uniquely created to be, then you are almost there now."

The newly launched book and all natural tequila collection combines various styles of tequilas that have distinct tastes, aromatic profiles, and barrel expressions. The tequila options range from the purest Blanco tequila on record, to flavorful, vanilla with butterscotch charred flavour, and all natural Añejos and Extra Añejos that are well aged in whiskey barrels up to fifteen years. All produced with no additives and no chemicals. While the book provides information that is accepting and powerful, written to transform your life, thoughts and beliefs.
In 2021, Black Sheep was awarded two gold and two silver medals at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition for its craftsmanship and world-class quality. While disrupting the industry with the over aged and higher agave concentrations of ultra pure tequilas.
Black Sheep Single Estate all Natural Tequilas features the exclusive 7-year TN whiskey barrel aged Extra Añejo with complex, full-bodied flavors and notes of caramel, warm oak, and roasted agave. The Añejo is actually aged 4-years, and then blended back to be classified in the appropriate category, results in an elegant bourbonesk flavour, evolving over time warm oak, natural sweet baked agave, and rich caramel. The Reposado, aged two years in whiskey barrels and blended back to the category, delivers a sophisticated “bourbonesk” rye counterpoint with smoothness and sweetness with lasting notes of butterscotch and honey. The all natural handcrafted Blanco contains a double concentration of Single Estate Los Altos Blue Weber Agave, resulting in incredibly smooth and complex flavours of light peppermint with a white pepper finish.
The Black Sheep ultra premium tequila brand utilizes traditional techniques like higher agave concentrations, slow-cooking and fermenting agave in wooden vats for three days and a fourth day using small, hand-made copper pots for distillation. These Black Sheep small handcrafted batches of tequila use high-quality ingredients and time-tested old-world methods. The idea is to honor the past, while providing a unique bottle. Living up to the name of Black Sheep.
Spirits by Black Sheep cultivate its own 100 percent pure Blue Weber highland agave, in Los Altos de Jalisco, Mexico. as it follows the single-estate model and controls the entire production process from ‘farm to bottle’, ensuring consistent quality, traceability and no allotment concerns.
Since 2000, Black Sheep produces single-origin agave from the Los Altos region. Black Sheep promotes a vast supply of ready to sell premium aged tequila that utilize responsible and sustainable harvesting practices, while further generating employment and direct personal ties with the community of farmers.
Typical pure highland agave of Los Altos bring out a mild sweetness and floral aroma, but as Black Sheep tequilas have some of the highest concentrations of Agave, the resulting Blanco flavouring is more herbaceous. Additionally, because of the extended age for each expression, beginners and connoisseurs alike find suitable options that satisfy their diverse sophisticated palate. As the flavors are clean and well-balanced, the tequilas are created to enjoy neat, on ice, or in a specialty cocktail. As a beverage is consumed, the body should react with pleasure.
With the latest announcement, Black Sheep continues its commitment to strengthen the craft tequila industry and make premium, pure handcrafted tequilas easily available online and currently available in six states for direct purchase.
