Apocalypto Tequila Reposado is 100% pure agave and aged for more than six months in American white oak barrels (only three months is necessary to be labeled as Reposado). Masterfully created to deliver a smooth spirit that delights the senses
Apocalypto Tequila Reposado is carefully aged to a perfect copper golden hue. The liquid warms the glass with flavourful aromas of floral accents and sweet agave. Initial Taste starts with hints of vanilla and oak then this full bodied spirit delivers a hint of coffee and chocolate. Finishes with a warming sensation, characterised by short mint and lingering pleasant oak taste.
The agave is grown in the lowlands of Tequila, Jalisco. The harvest is hand picked to have an optimal raw sugar content and is required to be cut very close to the heart. This helps refine the taste and produces a cleaner final flavour.
The Agave is then cooked in the slow traditional method of steam roasting, using centuries old thick stone walled brick ovens. The extracted juice is then fermented in open tanks for 48-60 hours, which is 5 times longer than most mass produced tequilas. This gradual process results in a more full bodied tequila.
