Have you tasted the ALL WOMEN MADE AND RUN @lagritonatequila ⁉️
This exciting new tequila is made by one of the few but rising tide of female distillers, Melly Cardenas, in tequila country at the tiny NOM 1533 in the Valle de Guadalupe.
Cárdenas uses fully mature agave, slow roasts them in traditional clay and brick ovens and produces and bottles La Gritona without the use of any additives.
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.
It’s aged for 8 months in old American oak barrels, then bottled in one of the most distinctive bottles on the market, hand blown from recycled Mexican Coke bottles.
Complex and brooding in character, the spirit gives off notes of caramelized fruit, ginger and pepper.
