A lovely entry into the burgeoning Tequila space in an unaged sipping Spirit with a well-balanced profile and great texture.

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 comes in the three primary categories of Tequila. All three are built on the foundation of PaQui Silvera Tequila. This is an unaged Spirit made from 100% Weber blue agave. Importantly, where a lot of lesser Tequilas harvest agave after only a few years, PaQui allows their agave to grow longer in the flied — seven to eight years. This means that they plants have a deeper, sweeter nectar. The plants are roasted in an autoclave, fermented for five days, and distilled at Distillery Autentica Tequilera in the town of Tequila in central Jalisco.

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
Brightly Clear

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is nicely balanced with notes of savory herbs, citrus zest, brine, and distant tropical fruit.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate opens with a very nice, viscous mouth-feel and develops tones of mineral water, flamed orange zest, more savory herbs, cracked black pepper, and a little something sweet.

Finish
The finish is long for a Silver Tequila with a warming, friendly bite of spice.

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.
In general, price of Tequila goes up with age, so añejos and extra añejos will be the most expensive and blancos the cheapest.
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 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 oxidation and evaporation diminish the quality of the Tequila 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.
