    Distiller Notes

    Reposado Rare is the result of an innovative father and son with the ambition of creating something new and unique. Their vision was to age their tequila in a large format barrel, called a pipon, for an extensive period of time most commonly seen with anejo (aged) tequilas. This was unique since anejos, by law, must be aged in barrels of 600l or less and this barrel, pipon #7, was vastly greater in capacity. Originally, their plan was to age the tequila for 15 months.

    However, their creative vision soon became a forgotten treasure and it was left to age for 6 years. This extensive and undisturbed rest in wood created an amazing tequila with rich complexity and exceptional depth & character. Each bottle is individually numbered and signed.

    This reposado is rested six years in American oak (more than required for reposado), yet because it was aged in a vessel larger than the 600-liter maximum, it still gets to bear the reposado label. The liquid offers distinctly sweet aromas of vanilla, maple and dried fig. The palate echoes those tones, layering on clove, allspice and cayenne.

    El Tequileno Don Jorge, Founder Winery Image

    El Tequileno's founder descended from the most renowned of the Tequila families. Tequila had always been part of his name and part of his life. Having spent almost two decades producing tequila the time had come for him to pursue his dream and start his own tequila. That day was New Years 1959.

    On January 1st, 1959, Don Jorge Salles Cuervo pursues his dream and establishes his own tequila. He calls it El Tequileno to honor the birthplace of tequila. In 1970, Don Jorge invites his son Juan Antonio to join the family business. To carry on his father and grandfather's legacy, Jorge Antonion Salles "Tony" joins El Tequileno. When 2008 comes around, the management of the distillery and the title of Master Distiller is passed on to Tony.

    Recognized for his lifetime achievement, in 2018 Juan Antonio Salles is bestowed the title of Gran Tequilero by the National Chamber of the Tequila Industry. To date, only four people have been awarded this designation. In this same year the distillery also created the world's first reposado rare.

    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.
