Proof66 Notes

In pronouncing Alquimia, stress the second syllable: "al KEE mee-uh." The distillery uses "organic methods" and claims to be environmentally friendly using 100% natural processes and no additives. The brand is owned by optometrist Adolfo Murillo of Oxnard, California. In an interview with the Organic Wine Journal, Murillo describes his commitment to organic production on his Mexican ranch and his efforts to teach other farmers of produce similar methods. 

Alquimia Reposado is their "rested" (or "reposado") expression. It is aged for 6 months in white oak, imparting a light color and depth to the tequila. They call it "lightly edged" and recommend it for specialty cocktails.

For the second year running, Alquimia Reposado was named Best Reposado Tequila in the 2013 San Francisco World Spirits Competition (out of a field of ~60 reposado tequilas). 

Alquimia Reposado was named Best Reposado Tequila in the 2012 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Ironic for an organic tequila--and despite a good review--the 2011 Beverage Testing Institute noted a "faint latex edge" in the otherwise "subdued aromas of herbs, roasted coconut, and peppers." This was not echoed in 2012 where they mentioned flavors of sweet cream, praline, and Asian spice.
