La Gritona is light on sweetness and retains the aroma and true essence of the plant from which it was distilled. Though LG has rested for 8 months in oak, the taste is herbaceous, with agave notes that have not been “whiskified” by the barreling process. It is a very vegetal tequila, without any oak, pepper, vanilla or dulce de leche that can be associated with a highland reposado. It retains the crisp qualities reminiscent of an excellent silver tequila while still expressing subtle signs of Melly’s deliberate aging. The finish is extremely round with no burn. We recommend it straight with no ice, lime, salt, or mixer. It’s best when paired it with a nice cold Mexican lager or pilsner. Melly distills La Gritona with agave that has a maturation age of between 9-10 years, and all of her piñas must originate in the iron-rich red soil of the local Jalisco highlands.
They currently bottle an average of 12,500 liters per batch. All of the agave remnants that are left over after production are given to local farmers to use as cattle feed. Their bottles are hand blown with recycled Mexican glass in Zapopan, an hour away from the distillery.
