From the heart of the Tequila Valley, Partida Blanco is the freshest expression of agave. Unaged, its color is crystal clear with aromas of agave, earth and citrus. On the nose are agave aromas, roasted yams, and sweet potato. It is smooth and clean with flavors of agave, mint, black pepper, and grapefruit. If you enjoy this great Blanco, you will love Partida's aged expressions that add even more complexity and depth.

Every ounce of Partida Tequila begins with a carefully cultivated supply of blue agave. Ours is grown near a dormant volcano in the Tequila Valley. Under the agave’s spiky tips lies “la piña,” tequila’s soul.
Even with tequila, patience is a virtue. You cannot rush the growth of la piña – the bigger it gets, the more mature the sugars, and the more full, ripe, and flavorful it becomes. We wait 7-10 years.
Most agave is cooked “the old fashioned way” in stone ovens that are rarely cleaned. The soot that develops adds bitterness to the tequila – not something we want to share with you.
At Partida we use only state-of-the-art stainless steel ovens to bake our agave, creating a smoother, cleaner agave taste.
Our tequila is aged in one-pass Jack Daniel’s American Oak barrels. That’s right, we age our tequila in barrels once used to age excellent whiskey.
Partida’s Reposado and Anejo are aged 50% more than required, and like ripe sweet apples, this aging makes for a better taste. Partida Tequila is completely natural with no additives and no coloration.
