About Espolòn Reposado TequilaMade exclusively from blue agave harvested from the Highlands region of Mexico, Espolòn Tequila Blanco is crafted at the San Nicolas Distillery by Master Distiller Cirilo Oropeza. The distillery is located among the agave plantations of Jalisco's rolling hillsides, and has been the site of tequila production for over two centuries.
The process begins when expert jimadors harvest the agave after they have spent nearly a decade maturing. Then, the heart of the agave — the piña — is removed and cooked for approximately 22 hours (versus the industry average of 12 hours). Once the piña has been cooked, it is shredded and the remaining agave pulp is fermented using a proprietary strain of yeast. During fermentation, Oropeza plays rock music within the distillery to inspire the agave. Then, he twice distills the wash through copper pot stills for approximately 5.5 hours (versus the industry standard of 3.5 hours).
The Reposado tequila expression is made from 100% blue Weber agaves. It started as Blanco, before being aged for 3 to 5 months in lightly-charred new American oak barrels. The aging process contributes another layer of complexity, making it perfect for any kind of cocktail that demands a serious tequila backbone.
