Xicaru Reposado Mezcal

— Respect for tradition —
xicaru reposado bottle

Inspiration
Fernando Santibañez saw the opportunity to create a mezcal with a nuanced and balanced profile while retaining the distinct identity of traditional mezcal. Xicaru Reposado is aged naturally and gently in small batches, reflecting Fernando’s great respect for both the agave and tradition.

Production
As with Xicaru Silver, Xicaru Reposado is made with 100% Agave espadin cooked in a conical stone oven with mesquite and ocote woods. After tahona-mashing, natural fermenting and double-distilling, the mezcal is ready for aging. For two to four months, Xicaru Reposado is allowed to rest in medium-toasted American oak barrels.

Tasting Notes
Barrel aging naturally imparts both the straw color and subtle sweet notes that complement the unique characteristics of a traditional mezcal. The herbal, smoky taste of the cooked agave is softened on the palate by the delicate tinge of vanilla and caramel. This beautifully rounded flavor finishes smoothly and cleanly.

Jaguar At Rest
We have chosen the jaguar to represent and pay respect to the history and tradition found in both Xicaru Silver – where the jaguar is alert and active, and in Xicaru Reposado – where he is resting. Even at rest this mythical creature represents a grace and power to be revered.
