This just might be the “template” show by which all others are judged! Th’ Lip took on the entire Partida line from the amazingly refreshing blanco all the way to the super-exclusive “Elegante” extra anejo! It was a rollicking affair that actually featured Lippy creating his own NEW MARGARITA! (“The GINGER LIP”)
This show has it all; a H U G E live audience that knew their Partida, along with the good folks from the Partida brand who were on hand to answer questions and relay “insider tips”! Some viewers even negotiated FREE T-Shirts from the lovely Sofia Partida herself. Just one more reason to make sure you come to the LIVE show whenever you can. Those premiums don’t happen here in the archives, people!
MUSICAL Guest: Los Lobos (with a bit of Zeppelin thrown in at a key moment — Tip O’ th’ Lip to SHTT !)
AGAVE SOURCE: Estate – Grown Partida agaves.
GENERAL TASTING NOTES:
Partida is a shining example of a “Modern-Method” tequila that brings old-world classic taste and detail to all of their products. Look for sweet spice throughout the product line with massive amounts of freshly roasted agave on the blanco in particular. If this brand were to cease production tomorrow, they’d be an instant “TREASURE-BOTTLE” top 10. But hey, Partida, please DON’T stop production!
