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
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.
The finish is long for a Silver Tequila with a warming, friendly bite of spice.
The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in PaQui Tequila Silvera 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.
