Padre Azul Tequila was founded by HP Eder and Adriana Alvarez Maxemin in 2016. While attending university in Heidelberg, Germany, the pair met, fell in love and began to build a life together. Eder, from the Austrian Alps and Maxemin, from Jalisco, Mexico each experienced a culture shock which catapulted them into a blend of their backgrounds with a mexican-crafted tequila inspired by Austria. Eder held a passion for distillation prior to this meeting of two worlds, and had inherited this passion from his father and his production of high-quality Vogelbeerschnaps, a traditional Austrian spirit made out of rowan berries. Just as he experienced the crafting of spirits with a recipe that had been passed down for generations, he witnessed the same passion and time-honored tradition in authentic Mexican tequila. Wanting to bring a true representation of this spirit to Europe, Eder, aided by his wife Adriana and her father/his father-in-law set out to craft their own premium tequila, thus beginning Padre Azul. Padre Azul Anejo is crafted with agaves aged from eight to ten years old which are then cooked, fermented and aged in hand-selected ex-bourbon oak barrels for at least eighteen months. Each bottle is handcrafted and topped with a skull casted from solid metal, honoring the symbol of la cavalera, a motif of Dia de Muertos. Padre Azul Anejo is a deep amber yellow and has aromas of coffee, vanilla, caramelized sugar and toasted nuts with hints of dried cherries and apricots and sweet agave. The palate is bold and balanced with flavors of vanilla, cocoa, dried fruits, caramel and cinnamon spice. The finish is velvety soft and lingering. Enjoy this luminous spirit with friends and family and sip neat to enjoy the time-developed complexities.
