La Gritona

La Gritona Tequila is a standout in the realm of artisanal tequila, distinguished by its unique character and the story it tells of craftsmanship and passion. Produced at NOM 1533 in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico, La Gritona is the brainchild of Melly Barajas and her all-female distillery team, setting a precedent in an industry traditionally dominated by men. This reposado tequila is a celebration of meticulous attention to detail and a commitment to quality, encapsulated in its strikingly distinctive hand-blown green glass bottles, which are recycled from Mexican Coke bottles, adding an eco-conscious touch to its presentation.

The spirit itself is crafted from 100% blue agave, harvested at the peak of its sugar content to ensure a rich and full-bodied flavor. La Gritona undergoes a careful distillation process, followed by aging in American Oak barrels previously used for bourbon, which imparts subtle complexities to the tequila without overwhelming the natural agave flavors. This aging process results in a reposado that is both smooth and nuanced, with a perfect balance of agave sweetness, hints of vanilla, and a light, peppery finish, making it an excellent choice for sipping neat or as the foundation of a refined cocktail.

La Gritona's dedication to traditional methods, combined with its innovative approach to sustainability and gender equality in the workplace, reflects a modern ethos that resonates with a growing audience of tequila enthusiasts. By embracing the rich heritage of tequila production while pioneering forward-thinking practices, La Gritona not only delivers a product of exceptional quality but also contributes to the evolution of the tequila industry, championing values of inclusivity and environmental responsibility.
