La Gritona Tequila Reposado 750ml
This exciting new tequila is made by one of the few but rising tide of female distillers in tequila country at the tiny NOM 1533 in the Valle de Guadalupe. Gritona is made according to traditional methods and because the team begins with perfectly ripened select highland agave plants, they ensure no shortcuts are necessary on their way to great tequila. The harvested plants are slow cooked in brick ovens and then left to naturally ferment with ambient yeasts before being double distilled in small pot stills. The new make spirit is then aged for 8 months in old American oak barrels. Complex and brooding in character the spirit gives off notes of caramelized fruit, ginger and pepper.
