Batanga Tequila 100% Agave Reposado 700ml
An award-winning premium 100% agave reposado tequila from one of the four founding families of Tequila.
In the western Mexico town of Tequila, there’s a small nondescript cantina called La Capilla - home of the Batanga, a simple drink created in the 1950’s by Don Javier Degado Corona, the bar’s owner.
The Batanga is simple: nothing more than tequila, coke and fresh lime juice, served in a tall glass with a salted rim. But as Don Javier will tell you, it’s flavour isn’t only in the ingredients - it’s the big knife, which he uses to stir the cocktail, that’s the secret to the perfect Batanga.
Batanga Tequila is traditionally distilled using 100% agave grown on one estate in the heart of Jalisco in Mexico. Only the best agave is used, the piñas are traditionally backed using brick ovens to guarantee the taste and flavour profile followed by fermentation. The yeast is produced locally at the distillery using the original formula from over 80 years ago. Only pot stills with an internal coverage of copper in the coil are used in the process. For maturation only ex-Bourbon barrels are used. Rested for a minimum of 4 - 6 months which is double the minimum time required (2 months).
A fresh and vibrant nose of grass and pepper. Subtle oak plays complementary role on a palate which shows great refinement and integration, with a crisp and flavoursome finish.
Store in a cool, dry place.
