Do you love cocktails with Tequila? How about a margarita? Have you heard of Partida Tequila? I have never heard of it until this review. For this review I received a gift box of three Partida Tequila Bottles. You can make a lot of interesting drinks with tequila. I decided to make the Caliente Partida, it was really good. I tried it with all three of the different tequilas. They were delicious! All three of the tequilas would make an excellent gift or even a stocking stuffer.
About the Partida TequilaPartida Tequila is the product of an outstanding marriage between traditional Tequila making and cutting edge technology. It's this extraordinary combination that gives each and every sip of Partida Tequila something special.the pure natural essence of blue agave.
Their blue agave is like no other. It's cultivated for 7-10 years until the piñas are perfectly ripened with concentrated sugars, harvested by hand and then slowly baked in state-of-the-art stainless steel autoclaves. The reason: To preserve the freshness of each sacred agave.
Partida Blanco TequilaWith its distinctive scents of blue agave, Partida Blanco Tequila is as brilliant as the Mexican sunshine. Boasting a soft floral aroma and blended perfectly with hints of citrus, fresh herbs and tropical fruit, this crisp tasting premium Tequila lingers on your palate, leaving it feeling clean and fresh. This invigorating, high-quality Blanco is an original and nothing short of remarkable.
Partida Reposado TequilaLooking for the richest and smoothest tequila? Experience Partida's signature touch of sweetness in Partida Reposado. This aged Tequila delivers subtle flavors that Tequila drinkers may have not thought possible. Free of the overbearing smoky flavor common to most Reposados, this Tequila is in a class by itself.
Its enticing light amber color with splashes of golden tones gives this premium Tequila its brilliant appearance. A rich finish topped off with scents of vanilla, hazelnut and almond, F. Paul Pacult called Partida Reposado "The Bentley of Reposado's".
Partida Añejo TequilaPartida Añejo, aged in American oak one-pass Jack Daniels barrels, reveals an intense flavor that can only come from advanced aging.
With its rich golden color - a mix of ochre and copper tones - the Partida Anejo is packed with zest. Its fruity aroma comes from a light blend of cherry, almond, dried fruit and spices. As for its captivating taste, soft honey fruited tones blended with flavors of banana, chocolate and sweet pear. The result: A spectacular finish. To taste this Tequila's true flavor, it's got to be savored.
