  • Details

    Founded in 1959 and now in the 3rd generation of family management, El Tequileno is named in homage to the people of Mexico itself. Blue Weber Agave sourced from Jalisco County is steam cooked before fermentation - supposedly the nearby mango trees influence the fermentation but I'm not convinced they have THAT much effect - before distillation in copper pot stills. Aging takes place in ex-Bourbon barrels - although that's not the case with this unaged Blanco edition.

    Steam cooking as opposed to roasting in overs/pits tends to offer a cleaner, less smoky flavour profile, and that's certainly the case here. You get more of the earthy notes from the agave, but what's great here is the delicious rich mouthfeel that accentuates the complexity within. Yes it will make a cracking Margarita, but this is genuinely an excellent sipping Blanco Tequila too.
