"TASTES GREAT, LESS FILLING" TEQUILA FROM PARTIDA

By Albert Hayashi

It is fashionable for tequila enthusiasts and connoisseurs to spend years debating the intricacies of which distillery makes the best tequila.  The fact is the largest country which consumes tequila in a blended margarita form is the United States of America.  The irony is drinkers may spend hundreds of dollars on premium tequila brands only to mix it with a supermarket generic margarita mix. Comments such as “the margarita is too sugary” or “fruity” cannot be blamed on the tequila but on the mix used.  There needs to be a way of maintaining the blue agave purity of tequila in a margarita drink form.  Partida Tequila recognizes this “margarita paradox” and has developed a drink solution.  In addition to introducing four new distinctive tequilas from the village of Amatitan in the heart of the blue agave tequila region of Mexico,  Partida Tequila has developed a new organic agave nectar used in the making of margaritas. 

The agave nectar used in the drink is an organic, natural fructose sweetener extracted from the blue agave plant.  Sweeter than sugar with a lower glycemic rating than sugar, honey or maple syrup, the Partida agave nectar is water soluble and easily blends together with the other margarita ingredients.  Without losing the blue agave taste, bartenders all over the world will now be able to make a pure cool refreshing agave-based margaritas. These Partida margaritas will not only bring out the pure blue agave taste, but is lower in calories and healthier.  The suggested retail prices for the blanco, reposado and anejo is $50, $58 and $67 USD respectively. The Extra Anejo Elegante which has been aged for 36 months priced competitively with other super and ultra-premium tequilas.

With most tequila distillers us agave from different growers and farms, Partida is very particular in keeping the blue agave purity and only uses plants grown on the family plantation.  For more than 50 years, Don Enrique Partida and his descendents have been cultivating agave on the rich red soil surrounding the dormant volcano outside the town of Amatitan adjacent to the town of Tequila , Mexico.  More discussion of Partida Tequila can be found at www.talkdrinks.com. A sampling of some of the cocktail recipes using Partida Agave and Nectar is shown below (more can be found at www.partidatequila.com).
