Don Saul Reposado

 

This tequila is for the true tequila connoisseur who appreciates the distinctive flavor of pure agave married to the soft and balanced texture of smoked white oak barrels. The taste is spicy, elegant, and rich with hints of vanilla and chocolate.

Don Saul tequila is produced in the lowlands of the state of Jalisco, in the town of Tequila (yes, there is a town called that). Our tequila is made in a state-of-the-art, but family-owned tequilera which dates to 1924 (while the family and a distillery can be traced back to the area for almost 300 years).The master distiller is the third generation descendant of the original owner.

La Purisima Distillery, the makers of Don Saul Tequila, uses the traditional Hornitos clay ovens unlike most of their modern rivals, who use live steam or huge steel ovens that look more like lumber drying kilns to quickly mass produce their idea of a tequila. The steel ovens and other shortcuts don’t yield the same flavor or results.
