I think I found a little gem. I have been addicted to the chase looking for rare bottles at any liquor store I can find.

The liquor store I worked at a few tears ago had cases and cases of this that somehow got sold to their warehouse at a mistake cost and they discovered that a few years after they bought it. So they blew these out at $35. I only bought 1 like a moron. Fantastic bottle! Cheers!

I would've bought literally every single bottle

El Tesoro 70th Anniversario extra anejo. Made the right way with the roller mill, stone brick ovens and copper pots. I just walked into a random liquor store and their it was staring at me from the top shelf. $150 bucks which I think is a deal considering it is such a hard bottle to find. Tequila hunting is taking up my time and money. Haha.

Nice grab, what state you in?


OneManMariachi

Out here in California

Did you grab the bottle in the picture from u/Diesel91six at his Honey Hole?


OneManMariachi

Haha. I was confused for a second. Nope found it out closer to San Mateo. They had a bunch of the olive bottles as well. Need to go back and spend my next paycheck there.

If I promise I will only buy one bottle, will you PM me where in San Mateo I can buy it? 🥺🙏


OneManMariachi

It was the only one they had unfortunately.

That’s what I am slowly getting at 😅


DodgeDuckDipDiveAnd

Not going to lie, I considered grabbing it. A little too far from SoCal even for a unicorn though.


[deleted]

Went to try and secure the one from my picture… they want 500.00!?!? too rich for my blood 😔


DodgeDuckDipDiveAnd

Ouch. No wonder it hasn’t sold yet. It’s very hard to find, but $500 is way overpriced. Did you ask about the old style bottle of Paradiso next to it?


[deleted]

Yea they want 500 for each of them. I was willing to spend maybe 250 max but was hoping it was under 200. Search continues

Cool I’m up in Sac. I hear the 70th was the best out of the anniversary editions. Now I want one…

what do you think of it?

Congrats on the nice find! Lately, I’ve been taking different routes home and doing liquor store stops. Yesterday was not a good stop. But if I stop at my big bottle store, I get distracted-I was looking to get a bottle of Ocho and walked out with a bottle of single barrel El Tesoro Reposado labeled hand selected by Mr. Camarena for TW and a single barrel Codigo Reposado. Good luck on your hunt!


OneManMariachi

Same here. Plenty of great bottles out there collecting dust just waiting to be found.

WOW! Congrats!!

El Tesoro 70th Anniversary Extra Añejo is my all time favorite tequila. Unfortunately I'm down to my last bottle and can't get myself to open it knowing it will be no more.


OneManMariachi

When I bought the 80th anniversary I popped it open right away. I regret not buying two. This bottle will stay closed and only be opened for a very special occasion.


DarkLeviathan

Luckily I do have a backup of the 80th the only void in my collection is the 75th

You mention rare bottles, perhaps you can help me! I guess I do t know if it is really rare or not but I cannot find any info on it anywhere! It is INSIGNIA REPOSADO TEQUILA RESERVA ESPECIAL. I would love to hear if you know of it. Thanks (I am sure you can tell I do t know a lot about tequila..sorry!


OneManMariachi

I have not heard much about that one. There are so many great tequilas out there that are not widely known. Usually you can use the NOM to find some decent info on the bottle and the distillery it comes from. Sorry couldn’t be of more help.


patumma

No problem at all thanks for trying. I’m thinking it must be from a small distillery and only sold in Mexico
