Super premium Mexican tequila brand Partida, has launched Elegante Extra Añejo, at Harvey Nichols . Each comes in a numbered, hand finished decanter with a crystal stopper. Its taste is so far removed from the burning sensation many associate with tequila that you may have difficulty recognising it.
This smooth, matured tequila is made using the very best hand harvested blue agave, which is then distilled and aged to perfection, in the finest American oak barrels. The flavour is almost bourbon like; the sweet honey, vanilla nose is followed with well integrated flavours of spice, apricots, caramel, raisins and a touch of agave tanginess. Partida achieves a rare and delicate balance between age old tradition and modern techniques, creating a sophisticated spirit with genuine heritage. £350 for 750ml
