A perfectly crafted Reposado Tequila aged in Tennessee Whiskey casks and finish in Red Wine barrels for a wonderfully unique dram of Mexican love.

Subir Singh worked for Patron, Remy Cointreau, and at Moët Hennessy before joining with his father Ajendra "AJ" Singh — himself a long-time veteran of Patron — to co-found Mico Spirits in 2015. This father-son team is keeping the Spirit simple and clean and the process traditional with the help of agave farmer Juan Nuñez and Maestro Tequilera Karina Rojo. Currently, they have three traditional Tequila editions — Blanco, Reposado, and Añejo.

When it comes to aging, Mico approaches things a bit differently. For them the difference is not "just" how long a Spirit has been in the barrel. They use different cask types and finishing techniques to perfect the profile for each edition. Each is a dram unto itself.

Mico Tequila Reposado begins like all Mico Tequilas. That means 100% Weber Blue agave from the Jalisco Highlands, harvested by hand. They are slow-roasted the old-fashioned way — no autoclaves are used that might damaged the character of the Spirit. After mashing, they are slowly fermented for six to seven days and double-distilled. But then it is matured for an average of eight months in Tennessee Sour-Mash Whiskey barrels before being finished in Napa Valley Cabernet casks.

Tequila labeled Gold (Oro) is your indicator (i.e., red flag) that you’re dealing with a mixto Tequila - unaged silver Tequila that has been colored and flavored with caramel to give the appearance of aged Tequila.
Need a salt shaker and lime? Nah. The Mexicans take their Tequila neat and prefer to leave the lime and salt for their margaritas. Wouldn’t be a bad idea to follow suit.

Tequila goes bad with time. Once you open a bottle of Tequila, you better be in the mood to drink it. Generally, you have one to two months before oxidization and evaporation diminish the Tequila quality and destroy the Agave flavor profile.
The strongest Tequila available for sale clocks in at 75% ABV (150 proof). This shouldn’t come as a surprise, but drinking huge amounts of this spirit is likely te-quil-a.
There are over 136 species of Agave. For Tequila to be officially called “Tequila,” it must be comprised of at least 51% of the Blue Weber Agave species.
