Free Tequila Partida Tasting
THE HISTORY OF PARTIDA The story of Tequila Partida began in the fields of the late Enrique Partida, a well-respected blue agave farmer. Enrique‘s passion, heritage and pride continues to inspire the team handcrafting Tequila Partida today. Tequila Partida is made only from blue agave grown in the rich, red volcanic soil of the Tequila Valley. After 8 to 10 years, jimadors hand select and harvest the agave. Underneath the spiky tips of the agave lies the piña (heart). If fine tequila has a soul, this is where it lives. Within 24 hours of harvesting, the fresh agave is cooked slowly in a stainless steel autoclave, to retain its crisp, rich, natural flavors. After a slow fermentation that lasts 36-40 hours, the distillation process begins. This is performed twice in small traditional pot stills, producing a clear tequila that retains the fresh, natural characters of the agave. Tequila Partida Reposado, Añejo and Elegante are aged in American whiskey barrels to develop natural color, rich aromas and a long-lasting finish. Tequila Partida’s Maestro Tequilero, José Valdez, oversees every step of the production process from harvesting the agave to bottling. We invite you to discover our tequilas and celebrate the vibrant colors and flavors of Mexico!
