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 Reposado 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 eight 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 Reposado is a bright golden yellow and has aromas of cooked agave, pear, citrus and tropical fruits with hints of vanilla, caramel, coconut and white chocolate. The palate is incredibly smooth and bold with the cooked agave, fruits and vanilla aromas carrying over onto the velvety palate. The finish is velvety soft with a touch of sweetness. Enjoy this luminous spirit with friends and family and sip by itself or in your favorite tequila cocktails!
