Sino Tequila Reposado

Sino 100% Blue Agave Tequilas are born from the red earth of the highlands in Jalisco, Mexico but live and breath on the streets of your neighborhood. Sino passionately produces artesanal tequilas of unparalleled quality, proudly steeped in the tradition of Mexico. Please enjoy responsibly.

The distillery and it's 100% Latina staff are focused around creating premium quality, artesanal tequilas. This passion for making the best quality tequila permeates all aspects of the creation of Sino. After harvesting the pinas, or "pineapple", of the agave plant from the fields, they are cut in halves or quarters and cooked in ovens for 24 hours which turns the starches to sugar. The pinas are then left to sit in the oven for another 24 hours and finally pulled from the oven to settle for a last 24 hours before being crushed to extract the juice from the pinas. This artesanal process differs from many other distilleries that use autoclaves instead of traditional ovens and move the pinas directly from oven to crusher, not allowing the pinas to settle prior to being crushed.

Sino Tequila Reposado from the Los Altos region of Jalisco, Mexico is aged for 4 months in new and once used American Oak whiskey barrels resulting in a tequila of rich flavor and a warm, smooth finish.

Wow. Nice stuff. I bought this bottle at Hitimewine for $27. The nose was a bit of barrel without being woody. Initial taste was very pleasant and very very smooth. Then a burst of honey and vanilla and a slightly, sweet agave finish. Delicious. Nothing overbearing just a perfect blend of tequila and oak. Almost silver like in subtlety. Just the right amount of barrel to make a great Reposado. Good job mujeres at Vinos Y Licores Azteca. I give Sino a 93.5
