It’s no secret that we’re always on the hunt for some of the hottest new brands in aged spirits. Today’s featured tequila hits the mark, coming from one of the category’s must-have trendsetters. Named by Forbes as one of the top newcomers for ultra-premium tequila, Adictivo is capturing the attention of both industry experts as well as consumers. It’s easy to see why. Adictivo was started in 2016 by Gildardo Partida, whose family has over 100 years of tequila-making experience, and focuses on a profile that leans towards sweeter, more mature flavors—appealing to whiskey and dark-spirit connoisseurs. Since the depletion of its first batch (which lasted just two months), demand has continued to skyrocket and Adictivo has quickly become a go-to in the premium tequila category. Today we’re featuring Adictivo’s ultra-aged expression, the limited edition ‘Black’ Extra Añejo that should be a staple on your bar for years to come.

Adictivo’s meticulous yet innovative process explains a lot of the hype. Guided by founder Partida, a certified maestro tequilero, the tequila comes from El Arenal, a town known as “The Gate to the Tequila Route” in the lowlands of Jalisco. Here Partida selects agave plants from several plots with a minimum maturity of seven years. After extracting the liquid, Partida uses Champagne yeast for fermentation then distills twice through stainless steel stills. An additional process of cold filtration is implemented to remove any unwanted fats, an extra step that is not normally seen tequila-making. For the Extra Añejo, the tequila rests in French barriques for seven years, making this an ultra-aged rarity. Packaged in limited edition ceramic black bottles, the tequila is dark amber in color, with fruity aromas and flavors of cherries, honey and maple syrup. The oak imparts richness and complexity that makes this the perfect sipping tequila. For one week only, take advantage of Concierge pricing and see what is shaking up the world of tequila.
