Our Story... In Mexico there is a drink named Charro Negro, or Black Charro, made with tequila, lemon, salt, and a splash of cola to color it dark. For many years our Master Distiller envisioned creating tequila modeled on his favorite drink, the Charro. His idea was to bring the special dark color naturally and directly to the tequila itself and with it a dynamic new flavor.
Working for decades in a tequila factory in the heart of Mexican agave country, Jalisco, had given our Master Distiller a nose for what makes tequila special. The key, he found, lies in the aging process. He set about testing a new procurement and maturation progression, laboring to find the perfect combination of taste and unique color. Perfectionism comes with the price of time. After years of trial and error, the Master’s vision was finally born out in the ultra premium purity of Moda Tequila.
Our Process... Moda Tequila Black Reposado is aged in triple charred high-grade French white oak barrels where it absorbs the rich amber/black from the cured barrel lining naturally. But more than just coloring the alcohol, the charred aging imbues a warm, rustic savor into the agave notes, with a medium intensity that evokes the essence of wood, vanilla, and herb.
Our Master Distiller’s goal is to bring a fresh perspective and excitement to the tequila market, respecting the agave’s deep history in Mexico while instilling a modern look and flavor to the traditional and best-loved qualities of tequila.
Moda Tequila has already generated great excitement and recognition for its refined character yet bold taste, and unique look and style. Anticipation is high for our forth-coming Blonde and Aged premium tequilas.
Moda is the world’s only Ultra Premium tequila with a deep black color. Its soft amber hues foreshadow the woody savor to follow.
Our methodology: first we cure our Reposado 100% Blue Agave in a charred white oak barrel, eliciting the unique color and flavor. We then further age it for nine months. Finally we amalgamate the refined three-year aged Extra Aῆejo, adding our signature triple internal roasting process.
The result is our proprietary blend of these two tequila classes. The short-term aged zest of Reposado and the seasoned, complex flavor of Extra-Aῆejo yields the best of both worlds of the maturation process. This all-natural crafting method, unique to the world of tequila, has made it possible to achieve a singular color and taste without artificial coloration.
Moda Tequila Black Reposado first animates the senses with an aroma that ascribes to caramel and cocoa. Once bathing the palate, it releases delicate herb, timber and rustic woody flavors with a touch of brine, concluding with an even finish that is the epitome of smooth.
Moda Tequila Black Reposado is the first and finest natural black tequila in the world, with an exquisite flavor, taste, and appearance. An emerging secret, fully formed.
