Wine Reviews

La Gritona Reposado is a subtle and distinctive 100% blue agave tequila distilled by Melly Cardenas at her small distillery (NOM 1533) in Valle de Guadalupe in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. The tequila begins with mature agave grown in the red soil of the Jalisco highlands that has been cultivated at the height of it’s sugar production and is put into our ovens within 24 hours of being cut. Our agave is baked in our thick-walled earthen ovens for 24 hours and then allowed to rest for another 24 hours before crushing. After allowing the collected liquid to naturally ferment a rate that is only dictated by the surrounding air temperature, we distill our fermented liquid twice. It is then rested in reused American whiskey barrels for 8 months before filtering and bottling. Every step of production takes place under one roof and our facility is overseen by a small staff of locals that work each process from start to finish. We currently bottle an average of 12,500 liters per batch. All of the agave remnants that are left over after production are given to local farmers to use as cattle feed. Our bottles are hand blown with recycled glass in the Guadalajara neighborhood of Tlaquepaque, an hour away from the distillery.

Tequila

Tequila, a distilled spirit with cultural roots deeply embedded in Mexico, is crafted from the fermented juice of the blue agave plant. The distinctive production process involves harvesting and roasting the agave hearts, extracting their sweet juice, and fermenting it to produce the alcoholic beverage. Tequila is characterized by a range of flavors, from earthy and herbal to fruity and spicy, influenced by factors like the region of production and the aging process. There are various types of tequila, including Blanco (unaged), Reposado (aged up to one year), Añejo (aged one to three years), and Extra Añejo (aged over three years). Widely enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or in cocktails like the classic Margarita, tequila has become a globally recognized and celebrated spirit.
