This is the first introduction to Cutwater’s tequila with a Reposado coming out some time in November. This San Diego Distillery (now owned by Anheuser Busch) took 10 years to introduce their first product, a Blanco). This is all done in Tequila Mexico in the traditional way. It is very similar to one called Fortaleza with rich smell of cooked agave, black pepper and a rich complexity.. They will be launching a Reposado at the end of this year. Apparently, they don’t put in any additives like any others. As many of you know, those who make Tequila in Mexico, can add up to 1% by volume of additives and those include coloring, sweetener, oak flavoring, vanilla and other things. They triple distil it and have it resting in both steel and copper containers. Apparently the copper will get rid of some of the peculiarities found in tequila that some of the flavorings would mask. I enjoyed it while visiting the distillery in San Diego earlier this week.
