Tequila

Welcome to our captivating collection of tequilas, a remarkable journey through the rich history, diverse flavours, and unparalleled craftsmanship of Mexico's most iconic spirit. This collection pays homage to the fascinating world of tequila, showcasing its versatility and allure that has captured the hearts and taste buds of enthusiasts worldwide.

Tequila, a distilled spirit originating from Mexico, is made from the blue agave plant, primarily in the region surrounding the city of Tequila. The production process is a labor of love, as the blue agave plant takes between 8-12 years to mature, and skilled jimadores harvest the plants by hand, separating the heart or "piña" from the leaves. The piñas are then cooked, crushed, and fermented, resulting in the creation of tequila's unique and exceptional flavours.

Our collection celebrates the vast range of tequilas, featuring the four main types: Blanco, Reposado, Añejo, and Extra Añejo. Each type showcases distinct characteristics, derived from the aging process and maturation period:

Blanco (Silver or Plata) - Unaged or aged for less than two months, Blanco tequila presents the purest expression of agave, with a crisp, clean, and vibrant profile.

Reposado (Rested) - Aged for a minimum of two months and up to a year, Reposado tequila acquires a more refined and complex profile, with the influence of oak barrels imparting subtle flavours of vanilla, caramel, and spice.

Añejo (Aged) - Aged between one to three years, Añejo tequila boasts a rich, smooth, and sophisticated character, with deep notes of chocolate, dried fruit, and toasted oak.

Extra Añejo (Ultra Aged) - Aged for a minimum of three years, Extra Añejo tequila is an indulgent and luxurious experience, revealing layers of velvety, decadent flavours reminiscent of fine cognac or whiskey.

Tequila's meteoric rise in popularity can be attributed to its versatility and cultural significance. Whether sipped neat to appreciate its nuances, used in craft cocktails, or enjoyed in traditional Mexican celebrations, tequila remains a beloved spirit that transcends borders and unites people in the shared pleasure of its flavours.
