Olmeca Altos Reposado Tequila (750ml)
Olmeca Altos is produced at Destileria Colonial de Jalisco. Operation at the distillery is overseen by Maestro Tequilero Jesús Hernández and his team of workers. In November 1994 Jesús Hernandez travelled back to his native Mexico with a team of engineers from Kentucky to apply his architectural schooling and practical knowledge of bottling and production logistics on the new Destilería Colonial de Jalisco. When the site was finished in October 1997 Jesús stayed on to help with the start of production before being appointed Maestro Tequilero. All the agave used at Destileria Colonial de Jalisco come from the Highlands with 60% coming from Olmeca Altos' own estates and 40% from third party sources. The barrel aging mellows out some of the funky agave notes present in the blanco and adds a flutter of baking spice to the mix. If you want something utterly sippable, yet priced at a point where mixing isn't a problem, this is definitely the value-priced reposado of your dreams.
