Don Fulano tequila comes from five generations of agave farmers and distillers. Over 140 years ago, in the town of Atotonilco in the Highlands of Jalisco, the Fonseca family became well known for their agave agriculture, even supplying the top tequila makers. It was only in the 1970s did the descendants consider creating a distillery of their own and after facing agave shortages, they established their own in the mid 1980s, known as La Tequileña Distillery. Don Fulano had learned from his travels throughout Europe, of the different methods and deep care put into spirit making all throughout the continent. He imbued his knowledge into his tequila-making and love for natural simplicity. Each tequila starts with just three ingredients; Handpicked agave, proprietary yeast and unfiltered natural volcanic water. Don fulano Reposado is a rich and delicate expression of the Don Fulano craftsmanship. Aged for 8 to 11 months in French Limousin casks, the aroma is filled with notes of oak, vanilla bean, cocoa and spices. The palate is round and enticing, with notes of sweet prune, coconut, macadamia and cooked agave. The finish is creamy with a touch of ashy minerality. The rich and buttery reposado is delicious when paired with food, on its own or in a great cocktail.
