A distinctive tequila distilled by Melly Cardenas at her small distillery in the highlands of Jalisco. Made from mature agave cultivated at the height of its sugar production, it is baked within 24 hours of being cut, spends 24 hours in earthen ovens, and is rested for 24 hours before crushing. It is naturally fermented, twice distilled, and rested in reused American whiskey barrels for 8 months. Bottles are hand blown with recycled glass in Guadalajara.
La Gritona is not too sweet, no vanilla, chocolate, or pepper, just refreshing and vegetal agave. The finish is extremely round with no burn.
