Atanasio Artisanal Reposado Tequila
Tequila Atanasio comes from the small town of El Medineño, just 20 minutes north west of the town of Tequila. The name Atanasio comes from Spanish and Greek roots, and means “immortal,” tying closely to the brand as they pay homage to it’s creator, Tio Atanasio, who lived to be 103 years old. --You’ll see this number on the neck of the bottle in honor of him and his philosophy that “with a little bit of Tequila every day, one can live forever.” Now, generations later, with Maestro Tequilero Don Chico Jiminez at the helm, Atanasio produces some of our favorite expressions of Tequila coming from the Valley.
From a unique story comes a uniquely delicious tequila, this reposado is for the slightly adventurous tequila drinker. The nose briefly offers an intriguing cotija cheese note followed by intense caramelized agave character and a hint of orange blossom. Nice oily mouth feel with zingy cinnamon, fruit and sweet nuttiness. A vivacious profile that has creeping pepper heat with juxtaposing creamy toffee.
