El Luchador Tequila Reposado
INSPIRED BY THE FAMED MASKED WRESTLERS OF MEXICO, tequilero David Ravandi has created El Luchador, a unique, artisanal portfolio of outstanding tequila expressions: Still Strength Blanco, Blanco, Reposado and Anejo.
Since his entrée into the artisanal tequila business in the mid-1990s, Ravandi has ushered several brands to international success. His El Luchador portfolio was inspired by the instantly recognizable-masks and the acrobatic showmanship of Mexico’s colorful lucha libre wrestlers. The connection between tequila and lucha libre - two of Mexico’s most treasured cultural institutions – represents a long-standing tradition, one that inspired El Luchador.
These extraordinary tequilas began their agave to glass-journey at 6,500 ft. in the highlands of Los Altos where blue agaves flourish in the iron-rich soils of our estates. Here, El Luchador is distilled using artisanal methods and produced and packaged with the utmost respect for the environment. Our Reposado and Anjeo aged expressions rest in French white oak barrels that once held the coveted white wines of Puligny Montrachet.
Roasted agave, bright citrus and vanilla are the hallmarks of El Luchador Reposado which is the second stage of El Luchador’s evolution and where it gains complexity and finesse from aging for four to six months in white oak barrels.
