Winners, look for your official seals and QR codes coming later today.

Reposado may be rested in oak barrels or casks as large as 20,000 litres (5,280 gallons), allowing for richer and more complex flavors. The preferred oak comes from the US, France, or Canada, and is usually white oak. Some companies char the wood to impart a smoky flavor, or use barrels previously used with different kinds of alcohol (e.g. whiskey or wine). Some reposados can also be aged in new wood barrels to achieve the same woody flavor and smoothness, but in less time.

Mike Morales and Alex Perez taste and discuss the complete line of Suerte tequilas in this episode of Sipping off the Cuff:

 

Suerte Tequilas have been carefully handcrafted to appeal to today’s modern Tequila drinker while maintaining a high level of authenticity. During production, our Master Distiller uses traditional methods such as low temperature, slow cooking and use of a Tahona to create a truly unique Tequila. Of equal importance is the pure spring water that infuses every sip of our value premium brand. At Suerte Tequila we believe in providing a true artisanal Tequila experience while pushing the boundaries of this traditional Mexican spirit.
