Tres Rios Tequila Reposado
Tres Rios Reposado Tequila - Alluring sweet nectar, slightly layered with smoke and vanilla makes this Reposado unique. The aroma is softened after spending four months in oak, yet the flavor still displays much of the original qualities of this highly nurtured Blue Agave. Tres Rios is careful to preserve the natural flavors of their premium late Harvest Blue Agave, resulting in a soft, authentic taste that is filled with character.
The yeast in Tres Rios is allowed to ferment for 24 to 28 hours, no more, no less, to achieve the perfect balance that is observed in this fine and smooth tequila. The Ojeda family uses artesian well water from a depth of 90 meters below the surface to compliment the quality of the distillation process. After the Agave is cut, it is stacked to bake in a brick oven for 36 hours, compared to the average of 12 to 24 hours, to impart the particular nuances of Tres Rios.
