One of the oldest reposado tequilas on the market, Hornitos Reposado has been the center of the party since 1950. It was originally made to celebrate the anniversary of Mexican independence, before reposado was even a thing. The rest is history, and more than six decades later, Hornitos Reposado is beloved by shot takers and margarita lovers around the globe. What goes into a bottle of Hornitos Reposado? This tequila is made from 100 percent blue agave, which is baked in small ovens, mashed, fermented and double-distilled. This pale straw-colored tequila ages for anywhere from two months to a year, typically in former bourbon barrels, before being bottled. Hornitos Reposado is 80-proof, so this tequila definitely packs a punch.
