Partida Añejo Cristalino Tequila is made using 100% blue weber agave from the Tequila Valley. After distillation, the tequila is aged for at least 18 months in American oak ex-bourbon barrels with a medium toast.

Then the tequila is filtered through a proprietary process to remove most of the color. It's diluted with demineralized volcanic spring water to bring it to 40% ABV.

Tasting Notes

"Unlike many Cristalinos, particularly añejo or extra añejo bottles, this expression highlights the spices from the barrel without much of the sweetness from the bourbon which it once held. The vegetal agave aromas and flavors are still here along with a little butterscotch. The tequila feels full on the palate with a bit of an oily feeling. Further nosings bring out lots more fruit, particularly pineapple and pear."
