About Partida Tequila Blanco
Born from a marriage of traditional tequila making and modern technology, Partida
Familia Tequila Blanco is made from blue agave nectar sourced near El Cerro, a dormant volcano, in Santiago de Tequila, Mexico. From afar, the rolling hills of agave fields could be mistaken for vineyards in the south of France or Sonoma Valley. Up close, however, you can see the rich, red soil, which creates the perfect terrain for maturing the agave plant. With years of experience, jimadors determine exactly when each agave is ready for harvest.
Jose Valdez, Tequila Partida's master distiller, holds a Tequila Expert degree from Cultura y Capacitación del Tequila A.C. (Tequila Culture and Training Association), and is also a certified Tequila Technician from the Consejo Regulador del Tequila (Tequila Regulatory Council). He carefully monitors the entire production process, including the quality of the blue agave.
Cultivated for nearly 10 years until the piñas are perfectly ripened with mature, robust sugars, the blue agave is harvested by hand and slowly baked within 24 hours in state-of-the-art autoclaves to preserve freshness and flavor. After the agave has been baked and shredded, Valdez lets the agave juices ferment for nearly two days before twice distilling the tequila and bottling it by hand.
Boasting a soft aroma and with hints of citrus, herbs and fruit, Partida Familia Tequila Blanco is smooth, clean and refreshing. Expect crisp, rich natural flavors and clean, smooth taste with bright notes of tropical fruits and vanilla, with hints of cooked agave, white pepper spice and succulent grapefruit. Enjoy this superb unaged tequila sipping or in crisp cocktails.
Partida Familia Tequila Blanco was awarded 95 points, Finalist, Tried & True Award at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2019, Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2019 as well as 95 points by Wine Enthusiast
