Tequila Corrido Reposado
Tequila Corrido Reposado is a single-barrel reposado, made from what we call the "Double-Barrel process." First, the tequila is aged to "Taste Not Time" in once used Jack Daniel's barrels. Then, instead of blending in other aged tequilas, as is the typical practice, we transfer or "rack" the liquid into a once used Maker's Mark barrel to absorb the different flavor profiles. This "Double-Barrel" process is more costly and time consuming, as a CRT inspector must be present to reseal and stamp the barrel each time we open a barrel for sampling. That's one of the extra steps we're willing to take to make our product unique. This method is unique to Corrido and no one else does this in the industry.
Similar to a Ballad, the Corrido is a musical form developed in Mexico, and specifically rose from a "Border Culture" along the Lower Rio Grande region, primarily between the mid 1800s and the 1930s. The Corrido became known as "musica de la frontera" (border music) because it was especially popular along the U.S.-Mexico border regions.
