Espanita Reposado Tequila Bottle Shot on White

Espanita Reposado Tequila

Using a base of Espanita Reposado, this stunning cocktail plays up vanilla and spiced notes with the inclusion of cinnamon and pears. The tequila is aged for six months in slightly charred ex-bourbon American white oak barrels to create subtle vanilla and caramel notes with undertones from the wood. The result is a creamy, succulent spirit with notes of spiced butter, crystallized ginger, jasmine tea, and hints of saline and peppery herbs. Sweet and creamy flavors of herbs and roasted agave on the palate make this tequila an exceptional option for sipping neat and in craft cocktails all year long.

Since it’s launch, Espanita Artisinal Tequila has been a breakout in the tequila industry with international superstar, Pitbull, joining on early as a Global Brand Ambassador and strategic partner. The brand crafts a line of three tequila expressions handcrafted from 100% Blue Agave. The line uses ancestral production methods to create a premium craft spirit that has won awards across its portfolio.
