Don Julio Blanco Tequila
A deliciously fresh and luxury Tequila bursting with citrus flavours. Made by the much-awarded Don Julio, this Tequila is made using the finest agave plants from Los Alton de Jalisco, masterfully crafted at La Primavera distillery (founded in 1942) and bottled immediately after distillation to maintain as much of the fresh agave flavour as possible. It’s incredibly smooth with crisp agave notes and a long finish with a touch of black pepper. A great Tequila for sharing, neat on the rocks or in cocktails.
Patron Silver Tequila
A premium un-aged tequila from one of the most famous houses in Mexico. Patron has gained worldwide recognition for its quality blue agave spirits and distinctive handcrafted bottles and this silver tequila doesn’t disappoint. Made in the Jalisco mountains of central Mexico, it has a wonderful crystal-clear colour with a light, smooth and delicate taste with notes of citrus and subtle spices. Each bottle is individually signed and given a unique number due to its limited production. Makes a fantastic and authentic margarita.
Sierra Milenario Reposado
Sierra Milenario’s 100% Agave Reposado Tequila must be aged in oak barrels called ‘pipones’ for a minimum of two months and up to a maximum of 12 months – it’s better known as rested, and it more of a sipping tequila rather than for cocktails. Made with 100 percent premium agave and distilled in traditional copper pot stills with triple distillation process. This one is aged in sherry cask.
Olmeca Altos Plata Tequila
Olmeca Altos Tequila Plata, 70 cl
An aromatic and fruity Tequila. Sweet in the mouth, with citric notes like lime – lemon cooked agave.
£28.20 Now £23 on Amazon
Olmeca Altos Plata is a 100 per cent agave tequila produced exclusively in the Los Altos region in the Highlands of Central Mexico. It is a joint creation of two of the UK’s most prominent mixologists, Henry Besant and Dre Masso alongside Master Distiller Jesus Hernandez.
The blue agave gives this smooth-textured tequila herbal and fruity aromas on the nose and a sweet and citrusy palate. It’s already delicious when drinking neat or on the rocks, but it can also serve as a top ingredient for Margarita.
Our top discovery Tequilas
Here are our tequila picks that might not be on deal, but are very much worth seeking out for their unique qualities.
Casamigos Reposado Tequila
Casamigos was the brainchild of longtime friends Hollywood A-lister George Clooney, Rande Gerber (husband of Cindy Crawford) and Mike Meldman and their shared love of tequila. Initially created as a ‘house tequila’ for the three friends – its name translates to ‘house of friends’ – the small batch production soon became available internationally and launched in the UK in 2015. The reposado is 100% blue agave from the highlands of Jalisco, aged for seven months in American oak and has a soft and smooth taste with hints of caramel, vanilla and cocoa.
Calle 23 Anejo Tequila
Created by Sophie Decobecq, who originally worked as a chemist in the cognac industry but was drawn to Mexico due to her love of tequila. This aged tequila has a great depth of flavour with notes of chocolate and chillies and touches of vanilla and coffee. Smooth and vibrant with some smokiness too.
