La Gritona comes from a small distillery located in Valle de Guadalupe in the highlands of Jalisco, where Melly Barajas is one of the few female tequilernos. Based on 8-year-old agave plants, it rests 8 months in used American whiskey barrels. It has one of the most distinctive bottles on the market, hand blown from recycled Mexican Coke bottles.
La Gritona is light on sweetness and retains the aroma and true essence of the plant from which it was distilled. Though La Gritona reposado has rested for 8 months in oak, the taste is herbaceous, with agave notes that have not been “whiskified” by the barreling process. It offers tastes of caramelized fruit, ginger and pepper. It can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, as a shot, or in a cocktail.
