About 512 Tequila Reposado
While the brand owners of Tequila 512 are based in Austin, Texas – hence the 512 area code in the name – Tequila 512 is crafted at La Cofradia distillery in the famous Jalisco region, Mexico. Tequila 512 is made from local volcanic spring water and 100% estate-grown blue agave that are harvested in the central lowlands regions just outside the village of Tequila. The agave hearts are roasted in horno stone ovens before shredder maceration and natural open air fermentation in stainless steel tanks take place. Triple distilled in copper lined stainless steel pot stills, Tequila 512 undergoes charcoal filtration for 24 hours and oxygenation, which enhances texture to achieve an exceptionally velvety feel.
Reposado, meaning rested, tequila must be distilled from 100% blue Weber agave. It's aged for a minimum of two months and no more than one year in oak barrels of any size, imparting it with its signature color.
Tequila 512 Reposado begins with Tequila 512 Blanco, which was awarded Double Gold and 'Best in Show' at the San Franciscno International Spirits Competition, that is then rested for 6 months in oak barrels. Full-bodied and mellow, the palate is packed with notes of oak and vanilla complementing the agave sweetness. Bottled at 80 proof, enjoy it neat or in a tequila-forward cocktail on a warm summer day.
