Aged in one-pass Jack Daniel’s American oak barrels for 18 months, this Tequila picks up fruity aromas and flavors that hint of banana, chocolate and sweet pear as well as the fresh flavor of agave. Interesting, complex and meant to be savored slowly, it scored 88 points from Wine Enthusiast in 2011.

"Partida’s Reposado’s has a smoky character that I find addictive. The nose is full of caramel, but the sip is almost peaty, like a Scotch. It’s an incredibly smooth, rich drink over ice or even neat—one that you could knock back slowly over an entire evening."

Product Details

In the glass, this aged Tequila has an Intense golden color with tones of bronze. The palate is clean and full bodied, with refined aromas of oak, chocolate, dry fruits and butter, while the finish show a pleasant spice at the tongue, and flavors of black and green pepper, white oak, vanilla, and maple honey. The spirit was created by a producer who claims to have made a marriage between age-old traditions and modern technologies, and reveals an intense flavor yet a retained freshness from its advanced aging. Matured eighteen months in one-pass Jack Daniel’s American oak barrels, it was awarded a Gold medal at the 2008 Agave Spirits Challenge. The Tequila is meant to be savored slowly to enjoy its interesting, complex and multi-layered character.

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.
