When people ask us to describe La Gritona, we find that it is difficult to categorize and to compare to other reposados. It is light on the sweetness, and it doesn’t have the notes that characterize many highland reposados out there…. no vanilla, no chocolate, no pepper, no dulce de leche… just agave. The finish is extremely round with no burn. Our friend Dmitri at the Starlite in San Diego calls it “the session tequila.” People also call it “refreshing” and “vegetal”, unusual adjectives to describe spirits, but we think they are appropriate. 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.
