La Gritona Reposado Tequila

$ 25

La Gritona is the brain child of prolific hardcore guitarist Andy Coronado. It's a big leap from hardcore punk to old school tequila, but what Andy did right was focus on authenticity at a reasonable price. Then he put it in one of the most distinctive bottles you'll ever see and began hawking it out of the back of his van. He searched for the perfect partner and eventually settled on the small Vinos y Licoreras Azteca to produce this special reposado. They start with mature highland agave and slow roast in traditional clay and brick ovens. After crushing, the agave is naturally fermented and double distilled in copper pots. It's then aged for 8 months in second and third use American whisky barrels before being bottled without any additives whatsoever. It's a simple recipe that many modern tequila producers fail to replicate and the result is delicious tequila that tastes of agave.
