Founded in 2007 by entrepreneur Efrain Lopez, Tequila Semental is named after Spain's premier breed of fighting bulls. Prized
for their pedigree, ferocity and competitive spirit, Mexican landowners historically used them to guard their agave fields.
Merging traditional methods and modern technology Semental crafts ultra-premium Tequila for a new generation of
Master Distiller and blender Valente Arellano L.C.Q brings four decades of experience to the task. He hand-selects 7-8 year
old, mature Blue Agave from the rich volcanic soils of the Semental estate holdings in the lowlands of the Amatitan and Tequila
Valleys – long known for producing rich, spicy, forceful tequila. The agave is cooked carefully in a high precision stainless steel
oven called an autoclave. After fermenting naturally with 100% purified and filtered water, Arellano tames the fiery nature of the
spirit through triple distillation, discarding the unwanted head and tail portions of the liquid and selecting only the heart, which
contains the most concentrated flavors. Each tequila is then individually blended to provide the perfect balance of smoothness
and unique, exotic character. Aging is done exclusively in new American and French oak Barricas Tequileras.
|(80º) Aged for a minimum of four months in new, medium toast, American oak barrels, the Reposado is the color of light, golden
honey. Featuring aromas of vanilla and pineapple with subtle hints of peppercorn, it is creamy upon entry. Earthy agave notes
meet flavors of apricot, mango, caramel, vanilla, dried fruit, and peppercorns. The oak imparts a slight nutty sweetness
resulting in a round, sophisticated, lightly spicy finish, making this is an ideal "sipping” tequila which can be enjoyed over ice.
