In 1753, a tequila tradition began within the walls of Hacienda Corralejo in Guanajuato. Today, we are reviving these traditions within the very same walls by making tequila that celebrates Mexico. From hand harvesting our estate-grown agave to a unique double distillation process, we pride ourselves in crafting authentically Mexican tequila of exceptional quality. But tequila can only be true to Mexico if it imparts a little bit of our culture with every bottle. This is, after all, a culture of celebration, of confidence, of flavor. This isn’t tequila to be stored away on a dusty shelf. This is tequila to be passed around the dinner table, to share at a party, to order a round at the bar. This is tequila crafted to celebrate the flavor of Mexico.
Tequila Reposado refers to Tequilas that have been ‘rested’, or aged, in oak barrels for a minimum of two months but not more than one year. Depending on the specific flavors a tequilero wishes to impart on the spirit, a variety of different barrels may be used, from Brandy and Bourbon, to Wine and Sherry. The time spent on the wood allows Reposado Tequilas to mellow as they age, softening and rounding powerful flavor components brought by the agave and marrying them to subtle notes of caramel and vanilla brought by the barrel itself.
