Familia Camarena Reposado Tequila
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Every Camarena bottle tells a story, originating in 1761 in Arandas, Jalisco Mexico, the heart of the highlands of artisanal tequila production. Here, the centuries-old bell tolls to this day, signaling celebration and drawing in the community from miles around. The bell, and what is symbolizes to the people, inspired the shape of the Camarena bottle. And in the center of our bottles, the wolves of Jalisco are hiding in plain sight, just as they did in the most sough-after agave fields. Feared and revered for their cunning and fierceness, these wolves are guardians of the agave and of the people of Arandas. Their loyalty demands unwavering respect, and an understanding that when you are good to the wolves, the wolves will be good to you. This spirit is contained within every bottle of the most award-winning tequila, dedicated to the lands where agave is grown, the bell rings and wild wolves roam. Their story is etched in every bottle of Camarena tequila and within every bottle, there is a story waiting to be told.
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.
