PaQui’s top-of-the-line Tequila aged a full fourteen months in American Whiskey casks.

Tequila Holdings was founded by John Chappell in 2006. The company got the trademark on PaQui in 2008 and began working on what would become their signature Tequila offering. Once they had developed their products, they started selling in a grass-roots effort with John and his sales manager selling bottles of finished Tequila literally door-to-door to restaurants and bars in New York City. Met with success and a solid reorder rate, they launched a successful fund-raising campaign on StartEngine to ramp up product and build distribution.

PaQuí Tequila Añejo is the bigger, beefier big-brother to the Reposado. It shares their pedigree and upbringing of its younger sibling. That means well-matured Weber blue agave plant and expert production by the folks at Distillery Autentica Tequilera in the town of Tequila. But this version has aged in American Whiskey casks for three and a half times longer — a full fourteen months. And that aging makes this an entirely new dram, and one that you should taste for yourself.

PaQui is said to be an Aztec word that translates as "to be happy." The logo is a stylized Aztec warrior who is dancing.

The palate is rich, balanced, and lightly sweet with butterscotch arriving first, followed by signature florals, vanilla bean, and a bit of roasted Hatch chili..

Finish
The finish is long, warm, and savory.

About the Flavor Spiral
What does PaQui Tequila Añejo taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in PaQui Tequila Añejo and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Tequila is made from one type of agave, Blue agave. Each of these plants takes at least 6 years, more likely a year or two longer to mature.
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.
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.
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 oxidation and evaporation diminish the quality of the Tequila and destroy the Agave flavor profile.
If the Tequila bottle label does not state that it’s manufactured from 100% Blue Agave, then, by default, that Tequila is a Mixto (manufactured from 51% Blue Agave).
In general, price of Tequila goes up with age, so añejos and extra añejos will be the most expensive and blancos the cheapest.
