Stocking the best 100% agave tequilas is not easy in Australia but we are thrilled to present Pasote Reposado, the brainchild of the legendary Felipe Camarena. Felipe has long been regarded as the mad scientist of sustainable tequila and wow he has excelled himself. Everything at his El Pandillo distillery serves an earth friendly purpose with the results being near perfect tequila every time.
The stand out feature of his Los Altos based distillery is its ability to capture and use rain water. Pasote tequila uses 40% rainwater and 60% spring water. The effect on taste is evident and contributes significantly to the uniqueness and success of this range. The agaves are also sourced from one of Felipes fields in the highlands of Jesus Maria.
The Camarena family are renown for their amazing bottles of tequila which include some of the best brands in the world like G4, Ocho, Tapatio and El Tesoro.
TASTE: Lusciously supple and warming, this agave tequila is rich with softly mellowed flavours, thanks to six months of barrel aging in American oak. The fruit-forward taste of roasted agave melds with fresh floral notes and subtle hints of sweet vanilla. The finish is very smooth and very long, lingering on sweet and clean–a taste to savor and anticipate in the next delectable sip.
BARREL: Usend bourbon barrels
ENJOY: Serve with a variety of artisinal cheeses. For heavier fare, pair this rich agave tequila with a variety of grilled meats including carnitas.
