Analysis

Two American friends love Tequila and dream of starting their own brand... (stop me if you've heard this before). While the story is far from unique the Tequila is unique and delicious. The Tequila is made at Tequilera Simbolo in the Highlands of Jalisco. Master Distiller Pedro Hernandez Barba crafts his Tequila from traditional methods using brick ovens for the cooking and a tahona (large stone wheel) to crush the agave that is then double distilled. The Suerte Reposado is aged in ex-American Whiskey casks for seven months. The best feature of this Repo is its subtle use of oak allowing the very appealing agave fruit to shine.

How to Enjoy

The Suerte Reposado is ideal for sipping neat while pairing great with ginger beer and ice or in the classic El Diablo cocktail.
