Siete Leguas Reposado Tequila
Los Altos, Jalisco, Mexico
Siete Leguas, named after the horse belonging to Pancho Villa, is a Highlands tequila from Atotonilco El Alto. Agave piñas are harvested, cooked in ovens, and then pressed by either a mule-driven tahona or shredded by more contemporary techniques. The aguamiel (honey-water) is then fermented and distilled. The reposado expression is aged for eight months in white oak barrels.
Tequila ReposadoDistilled from 100% blue Weber agave, it is aged from 2 months up to a year in barrels no larger than 20,000 L. Any type of wood is acceptable, although ex-bourbon barrels are most common. Reposado translates to "rested".
"Eight months of resting on oak imparts a tinge of color to this spicy reposado. On the nose it presents a hint of lemon peel and vanilla. On the palate it's all agave kick with a peppery bite, minerality, a touch of oak, and a long finish. This is an agave lover's reposado, great for sipping and versatile enough to find a home in cocktails."
