PaQui’s brilliant Tequila Spirit aged for four months in ex-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 Reposado Tequila is the middle-child of the PaQui Tequila lineup. The same 100% Weber blue agave is allowed to fully mature for seven to eight years in the field — which is up to three times longer than some lesser brands. Trust us, it makes a difference. Then the Tequila wizards at Distillery Autentica Tequilera in the town of Tequila work their magic alchemy of fermentation and distillation. Only this time the Spirit is allowed to rest in ex-Whiskey barrels for four months to polish the signature flavors with a bit of wood.
PaQui is said to be an Aztec word that translates as "to be happy." The logo is a stylized Aztec warrior who is dancing.
Appearance / Color
Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma opens with floral notes — jasmine and cactus blossoms — proceeding to tea leaves, fresh grass, and a dash of vanilla.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The floral notes arrive on the palate as well, followed by savory and sweet herbs, fruit and zests, and a layered wood influence..
The finish is medium-length and warming with a kick of spice and herb-infused honey.
The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in PaQui Tequila Reposado 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.
