Partida // Tequila Valley, Jalisco, Mexico

Stainless ovens, also known as autoclaves, are used to cook the agave at a lower temperature than has become the industry standard. Their fermentation tanks are open vats which allow wild yeasts to be utilized. A combination of stainless and copper alembic stills are used in the distillation process.

"The nose is pretty clean with some unsweetened tropical fruit like papaya and pineapple though the intensity isn't strong. The palate is quite slick and the fruit found on the palate is more about lime than the tropical notes found on the nose. Some roasted peppers show up upon further nosings and the finish expresses dried herbs and bitterness."
