Product Details

The soft floral aroma of this unaged Tequila from the Lowlands region of Mexico is blended perfectly with hints of citrus, fresh herbs and tropical fruit. The premium spirit lingers on the palate, leaving it clean and fresh. It's crisp, yet rich and peppering, and it's perfect for sipping alone or mixing in cocktails like a Bloody Maria, and it was awarded the Silver medal at the 2008 Agave Spirits Challenge.

About the Producer

The story of Partida Tequila began in the fields of the late Enrique Partida, a well-respected blue agave farmer, and his passion, heritage and pride continue to inspire the team handcrafting Partida Tequila. The company was founded in 2001 by Gary Shansby, who also successfully launched several brands of food, including Famous Amos Cookies. Partida is only made from blue agave grown in the Tequila Valley, near a dormant volcano, and the area’s rich, red volcanic soil is perfect for the plant. After seven to ten years in the fields, the agave reaches close to one hundred pounds, and is hand harvested by the jimadors; the larger the piña, the more mature the sugars: fuller, riper, more flavorful, and Partida Tequila only uses fully mature blue agave. Within twenty four hours of harvest, the agave is cooked fresh, slowly, in a stainless steel autoclave, to retain its crisp, rich, natural flavors. After a slow fermentation of the agave juice during thirty six to forty hours, it is distilled twice in small traditional pot stills, producing a clear spirit that retains the fresh, natural characters of the agave. Partida Reposado, Añejo and Elegante are aged in American whiskey barrels to develop aromas of vanilla, almond and dried fruits, and a long-lasting finish. Partida Tequila’s Maestro Tequilero Jose Valdez oversees every step of the production process, from agave harvesting in the field till the final blending prior to bottling.
