Partida Tequila is only made from blue agave grown in the Tequila Valley, near a dormant volcano. The rich, red volcanic soil is perfect for the plant. After 7 to 10 years in the fields, it reaches close to 100 pounds and is hand-harvested by the jimadors. Underneath the spiky tips of the agave lies the piña. If fine tequila has a soul, this is where it lives. Its growth can never be rushed. The larger the piña, the more mature the sugars: fuller, riper, more flavorful. Partida Tequila only uses fully mature blue agave.
Within 24 hrs of harvest, the agave is cooked fresh, slowly, in a stainless steel autoclave, to retain its crisp, rich, natural flavors. After a slow fermentation of the agave juice during 36-40 hours, comes the distillation, performed twice in small traditional pot stills, producing a clear tequila retaining the fresh, natural characters of the agave.
