About Partida Reposado Tequila
Born from a marriage of traditional tequila making and modern technology, Partida Tequila
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.
The piñas are perfectly ripened with mature, robust sugars; the blue agave is harvested by hand after ten years and slowly baked 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. Partida Reposado Tequila is aged for six months in American oak barrels, yielding incredible nuances of flavor.
