Tequila Aficionado’s Mike Morales and Alex Perez taste and discuss Trianon Tequila Reposado and explain why they’ve nominated it as a 2014 Brand of Promise.

“If you’re looking for a tequila with personality and depth, look no further than Trianon Tequila.  This is an unabashedly unadulterated, old school tequila for true tequila lovers.” ~Lisa Pietsch, Tequila Aficionado 

 

 

Trianon Tequila Reposado

Our family takes great care to make each of our tequilas the same way we have for generations—by hand. We think that’s the only way to make tequila that captures the true taste of blue agave. So, that’s what you’ll find in every bottle of Trianon: True agave taste with a smooth and satisfying finish. Try all three expressions of Trianon and discover the true taste of tequila for yourself.

The remarkable success of our Reposado is owed to beginning with our uncompromising Blanco. The transformation occurs when we rest our Blanco in specially made American and French Oak barrels for six months—four months longer than Mexican law requires. The result is a true agave taste and smoothness combined with complex notes of aged oak.

Trianon Blanco

Trianon Blanco’s incomparably smooth taste is made possible only through the sacrifice of both the head and tail of the tequila. By bottling only the virgin distilled heart of Blue Weber Agave, our Blanco captures the truest tequila taste–untainted by any hint of the biting alcohols found in other tequilas. Its clarity and purity makes it the choice of connoisseurs and the foundation of our award-winning Reposado and Añejo.

About Calavera Tequila

Calavera Tequila distillery is located in the heart of Mexico’s premier agave growing and tequila producing region:  Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico.

Calavera Tequila combines the best of old traditions with the latest technology, producing next-generation artisan tequilas. The master distiller utilizes traditional slow bake brick ovens & autoclaves to cook the blue agave hearts, and traditional mills (molinos) to extract the juices from the Agave. Calavera Tequila ferments with natural occurring yeast, and distillation takes place in old-fashioned pot stills. All water is processed through an ultra-modern system of reverse osmosis, de-ionization, and ultra violet bacteria eliminating lights, followed by two types of filtration.

The History of Calavera Sugar Skulls

Sugar art was brought to the Americas in the 17th century by Italian missionaries.  Having renounced wealth, the friars turned to the local artisan community for help creating religious decorations for festivals.  Sugar, a staple of the region, was use to make these artifacts because of the look of glass it created.  Artists sculpted angels, the Virgin Mary and the famously known “Sugar Skulls”.  Sugar skulls represented a departed soul whose name was written on the forehead so it could be placed on their Ofrenda or gravestone to honor the return of their spirit.  Labor intensive, colorfully hand painted and beautifully adorned, very few of these are made by the skilled sugar skull makers.  For that reason we are privilege to present these works of art as the Calavera Tequila brand bottles.
