One part tradition, one part innovation, this Tequila has spent 6 months in Wine barrels.

Petro Kostiv is a seasoned entrepreneur with several global projects under his belt. Saul Perez Ocampo is a Master Distiller and Kostiv's long-time buddy. When the former gave Kostiv a bottle of Tequila as a gift, a new passion blossomed. We can't blame him, the Mexican Spirit is an intoxicating one! One thing led to another and several visits to Jalisco later the pair decided to form a partnership. The goal? Bringing proper Artisanal Tequila ― and with it, Mexican culture ― to the world, working with several charity organizations along the way.

It's all done the traditional way in Amatitan, Jalisco, using agave from the lowlands. The harvested agave hearts or "piñas" are roasted in brick ovens, crushed in roller mills, and open-air fermented in wooden vats, before being double distilled. That's all well and good, and a great start to any Tequila story. But it's at this point that the foursome of expressions that they currently offer goes to do its own thing. You see, all the rested and aged expressions get matured in Wine barrels. The Reposado has spent 6 months in hand-charred cabernet Sauvignon casks, resulting in a truly unique drink.

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 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.

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).
Tequila is like Champagne or Cognac. It has a Denomination of Origin, meaning it can only be produced in the Jalisco State, Mexico.
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.
