La Gritona Reposado Tequila

When people ask us to describe La Gritona, we find that it is difficult to categorize and to compare to other reposados. It is light on the sweetness, and it doesn’t have the notes that characterize many highland reposados out there…. no vanilla, no chocolate, no pepper, no dulce de leche… just agave. The finish is extremely round with no burn.

La Gritona Reposado is a subtle and distinctive 100% blue agave tequila distilled by Melly Cárdenas at her small distillery (NOM 1533) in Valle de Guadalupe in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. LG begins with 9-10 year old mature agave grown in the iron-rich red soil of the Jalisco highlands that has been cultivated at the height of it’s sugar production and is put into ovens within 24 hours of being cut. Our agave is steam cooked in one thick-walled earthen oven for 24 hours and then allowed to rest for another 24 hours before crushing. The collected liquid is naturally fermented in open steel vats at a rate that is dictated by the local air temperature. Once it starts to swim, we distill our nascent silver twice. We rest the distilled silver in reused American whiskey barrels for 8 months before filtering and bottling. We char our barrels very lightly and we allow the barrels to be used for other rested tequilas prior to our resting period so that the residual oak, the residual whiskey, and the leached color from both can be as stunted as possible while our reposado ages. We do not use copper stills or a tahona, and we do not diffuse or use an autoclave. Our agave is crushed with steel shredders after cooking and we distill our liquid in steel stills. Every step of production takes place under one roof and our facility is overseen by a small staff of local women that work each process from start to finish. We currently bottle an average of 12,500 liters per batch. All of the agave remnants that are left over after production are given to local farmers to use as cattle feed. Our bottles are hand blown with recycled Mexican glass in the Guadalajara municipality of Tonolá, an hour away from the distillery.

    Very nice tequila!

    The plain bottle and flip top cap belie the quality of the beverage inside. My friends and I only drink our tequila neat. This one was very smooth, with a good flavor and no after burn. It sticks in my mind because my brother-in-law and I polished off more thab half a bottle during an afternoon barbecue by the pool. I will definitely be adding another of these to my collection!
