I hope you've learned your lesson about tequila.
No, not the one about pounding them back while singing "Pour Some Sugar on Me" when you were 19, or having too much on that week away in Mexico/Cuba/St. Maarten.
I mean the one that:
1. Tequilas can be a fine liquor that actually taste good
2. Many tequilas are meant to be sipped on, like scotch, whiskey and brandy
3. Not all tequilas are created equal
One of my recent discoveries and favourite finds is Riazul Premium 100% Blue Agave Tequila.
Take away all your preconceptions about tequila because this brand is oh-so different. You'll enjoy a smooth feel and taste and even a little sweetness.
You have to try all three - Silver, Reposado and Anejo, which scored 94 out of a 100 on Tequila.net. They will surprise and delight your palate.
Like many cocktails and spirits today, this artisan alcohol is made with great care. Riazul harvests and processes its agave in the highlands of Mexico, where the elevation is high, the climate is cool and the soil is red, rich in mineral content.
I love that their 250 acres of agave fields is tradition that has been passed down through the generations and that this artisan way of making such a rich and enjoyable spirit has continued on.
My fella and I enjoy sipping on these with just a little ice, but you can certainly make fine cocktails with them as well.
The important thing is that you embrace Riazul 100% Blue Agave Premium Tequilas. Because it might just be one of the best things you've ever tasted.
