Agave Loco Pepper Cured Reposado Tequila has been crafted from 100% Agave Reposado sourced from the Jalisco Highlands of Mexico. It has been aged in used bourbon barrels for 3-6 months and then cured in a proprietary formula of 6 pepper varieties, including Jalapeno, Habanero, and four other types.
Each pepper variety was chosen for unique characteristics, some for heat, some for sweetness, and some for flavor. The peppers are then steeped in the aged Tequila anywhere from 3 days to 2 weeks, which extracts the most flavorful essential oils from the peppers, yielding a "cured" tequila, with the powerful flavors of pepper, creating a "Sweet Heat." This Agave Loco Pepper Cured Mexican Tequila has bottled at 71 proof (35.5% alcohol by volume). Enjoy!
