Pasote Tequila Blanco
Pasote // Los Altos, Jalisco, Mexico
A 100% blue agave tequila owned & imported by 3 Badge Mixology, Pasote Tequila Blanco is made by Felipe Camarena at El Pandillo Tequila Distillery in the Los Altos (Highlands) region of Jalisco, Mexico. Camarena maintains the traditional process of tequila making, using stone ovens with built-in steam jets to cook the piñas and a hand-built steel shredder and tahona wheel to shred and extract the agave. Fermented in stainless steel vats and double-distilled in copper stills, 40% collected rainwater and 60% stream water is added and the final bottled product is bottled at 40% ABV.
Tequila BlancoDistilled from 100% blue Weber agave, it is typically unaged , clear, and bottled straight after distillation. Sometimes rested in stainless steel up to 60 days and can also be aged in wood for no more than 30 days.
"This tequila is loaded with cooked agave from aroma to finish. The aromas display rich cooked agave, citrus, and the fruit aromas are rich with a minerality that is difficult to separate until you taste it. The flavors begin with a soft, clean sweetness that shows the agave and highlights bright minerality, creamy stone fruit, cracked pepper, and briny complexity. The rich mouthfeel is a revelation to intricate balance that continues all the way through the excellent finish. This is fantastic traditional tequila."
