Maracame Tequila Reposado
In Arandas, the epicenter of Highland tequila production, the Camarena family (Augustin Camarena), has been growing, harvesting and distilling the prized Blue Weber Agave, since 1938. But the history runs even deeper, as the Camarena family co-founded the town of Arandas in 1761. Only the biggest, sweetest, agaves are used in Maracame. Sugar, acid and water levels are carefully checked in the field and the distillery. A 100 year old volcanic oven is used only for Maracame, and the care taken for each expression shows.
Aged 9 months in American oak barrels with a pale golden yellow color, the rich aromas of citrus marmalade and baked fruit are accentuated by the peppery mid-palate notes and nougat sandalwood finish.
