Tequila Partida has announced the release of their first nationally available Single Barrel Reserve bottling.
The spirit is available on the market this month, and is made with 100% Blue Weber Agave.
“The Single Barrel is a unique expression of our Reposado and meets the high standards of Tequila Partida our consumers expect,” says Maestro Tequilero José Valdez. “We sampled 108 barrels twice — at three months and again at five months — and the results were 30 exceptionally unique barrels, separated into three agave-forward and delicious tasting profiles.” Valdez then numbers and signs each bottle for the final touch.
Aged a minimum of six months in white American oak with medium char, Valdez created three separate tasting profiles for each barrel: Ligero, Medio and Intenso. Each profile offers different levels of color intensity, flavors and aromas.
All three flavor profiles explore the versatility of reposado, the company says. Ligero offers notes of fresh agave, maple syrup, toasted oak and caramel; Medio provides flavors of cooked agave, vanilla and butter; and Intenso, dried fruit, nuts and coffee.
The Single Barrel Reserve will have a limited nationwide availability at a suggested retail price of $54.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
