Ultimate Beverage Challenge 89 points - The nose is marked with wood, pepper and fragrant herbs. This tequila is whiskey like in character with a smooth, viscous texture and a peppery, seasoned finish. (Mar 2013)
Reposado means ”to rest.” We let our Familia Camarena 100% Blue Agave Reposado Tequila rest in American oak barrels for 60 days before bottling. The aging process lends a touch of soft spice to the natural sweetness of the agave in our Reposado Tequila. The result is a smooth, refined barrel aged Tequila with an elegant, robust finish.
|Our heritage in Tequila began more than 250 years ago. Our Spanish ancestors immigrated to Mexico in the early 18th Century and co-founded the town of Arandas in 1761. Long considered the epicenter of artisanal highlands Tequila production, Arandas is home to our family-owned Tequila distillery.
For six generations, we have taken great care in preserving the invaluable resources of this important region, practicing sustainable farming and taking a long-range approach to growing quality agave. As part of our family’s commitment to preserving the ecology of the Los Altos Highlands region, engineers at our distillery invented a system to recycle the vinazas – organic residue from careful distillation – generated through Tequila production . We reuse the vinazas to fertilize the agave fields with organic material , yeast and sugar. For 250 years, our commitment to the land has never wavered.
