Siete Leguas Reposado Tequila
This 100% agave tequila is carefully aged in white oak barrels for eight months. The vegetal character of the blue agave is immediately apparent on both the nose and palate, with engagingly complex notes of savory spice and cedar.
From the beginning in 1952 at Fabrica El Centenario Siete Leguas has remained family owned and operated, and combines the tequila from their two distilleries, 'El Centenario' founded in 1952 and 'La Vencedora', considerd the 'modern' facility, founded in 1984. Siete Leguas- NOM 1120 is a family-run distillery owned by Juan Fernando Gonzalez. Both distilleries make complete tequila- cooking, macerating, fermenting and distilling, two hours east of Guadalajara in the town of Atotonilco in Jalisco, Mexico. Casa Siete Leguas operates these two separate distilleries, and they are about 150 yards apart down the road.
Siete Leguas grow their own agaves, and their fields are nearby. The agaves grow larger here, produce sweeter and fruitier tequila, and all the agaves used are from this region. Without getting sidetracked, most people know that Siete Leguas produced the original Patron tequila, from 1988 to 2002 at the time when Patron was building it's reputation for what they considered the best premium tequila in Arandas.
