A distinctive tequila distilled by Melly Cardenas at her small distillery in the highlands of Jalisco. Made from mature agave cultivated at the height of it’s sugar production, it is baked within 24 hours of being cut, spends 24 hours in earthen ovens, and is rested for 24 hours before crushing. It is naturally fermented, twice distilled, and rested in reused American whiskey barrels for 8 months. Bottles are hand blown with recycled glass in Guadalajara.
La Gritona is not too sweet, no vanilla, chocolate, or pepper, just refreshing and vegetal agave. The finish is extremely round with no burn.
This is an interesting bottle of tequila beginning with the unconventional bottle which is an eye catching Green Flask like raised lettered bottle. The tequila is very tasty and a great representation of tequila that is made with traditional methodology. It is Agave forward with hints of spice and white pepper in the back of the throat. Great price for a very well made Reposado. Take one to a party and it will be the main attraction. Salud!
I love the presentation of the bottle. I got this as a gift so I didn't taste it myself.
This is such a fun one to give and share. The bottle looks great, the quality is so high for the price, and it is a perfect bottle to reuse.
