Reposado

Reposado

This sign has a slightly macabre edge, but it also doesn’t take itself too seriously. I like the way the name and the graphic are composed of the same casual strokes.

It hangs above a tequila bar on Ossington, and that skeletal bat must leave many wondering. As it turns out, there’s a connection: the long-nosed bat is responsible for pollinating agaves, whose juices are the source of tequila.

Reposado means “rested”, referring to the amount of time tequila is aged in oak casks. This bat looks like it’s resting for good—and at the same time it’s airborne, inviting us in.
