Tasting Notes

The brainchild of industry legends David Phinney and Rosendo Ramirez Senior has arrived! This tequila has incredible pedigree. The agave comes from fields in the highlands of Jalisco at 7000 ft elevation. The cool nights, warm days, and iron rich soils provide ideal growing conditions for the agaves and lead to a perfectly mature and ripe pina. Rosendo Ramirez Senior oversees the harvest and hand selects only the finest agave for the Ayate. The agave hearts are then cut into quarters and slowly steamed for an extended period to release all of the sweet juices from the ripe plant. Distillation happens in traditional copper pot stills and then the tequila is transferred into Dave Phinney's wheelhouse. The Reposado spends 4 months in new American oak barrels and then an additional 4 months in Chardonnay barrels from Dave's wine projects. This unique finish is perfect. It's just robust enough to add a great richness, making the tequila supremely sip-able and just delicate enough to preserve all of the hard work in the agave fields and careful distillation.

    True highland agave purity and complexity is bolstered by the added richness and weight from 4 months in Chardonnay barrels. This tequila is one of the absolute smoothest and most approachable tequilas we have on the shelf, second only to the Ayate Anejo. If you loved the Casamigos tequilas, take a huge step up and sink yourself into the Ayate. With less sweetness than Casamigos, but just as much richness, this is the best tequila to serve at your next party and really impress your guests.
