Ayate Reposado Tequila
Appealing and inviting aromas of lime, grapefruit, agave and fresh cut grass. Satisfying array of flavors including stone fruit, meyer lemon, melon, ginger and vanilla bean. A balance of richness and freshness, this is a polished and pure Reposado best served on the rocks or in speciality cocktails.
Ayate is part of the Savage & Cooke family of spirits. The distillery, owned by Napa Valley winemaker Dave Phinney, is located on historic Mare Island and opened in 2018. The decision to locate the distillery on Mare Island was due to its fascinating history as a naval shipyard, the plethora of space, stunning brownstone buildings and its proximity to both the Napa Valley and San Francisco. Savage & Cooke distills, ages, finishes and bottles a range of brown spirits including Bourbon, Whiskey and Rye.
For Ayate, Rosendo Ramirez Senior oversees the harvest and hand selects only the most pristine, mature agaves. Jimadors skillfully remove all of the green leaves down to the heart of the piñas so that only the dense, succulent, sugar-rich core remains. The agaves range in age from six to eight years old.
