From the Suavecito website:

Mountain Grown

Our Blue Agave is grown in the red soil of the mountains of Jalisco, Mexico. These Highlands are particularly well suited to growing the Suavecito Blue Agaves. Our plants are slightly smaller, contain less water and produce a higher quality sugar.

Distilled Only Once

We start with quality ingredients. We staff a team of growers that regularly test the soil to ensure only the best of growing conditions. Suavecito needs to be distilled only once to produce a smooth and 100% authentic taste.

Rested in American Oak Barrels

Different barrels contribute unique flavors and distinct characteristics. Suavecito is rested in specially selected American Oak barrels to ensure that it’s 100% smooth.

Lisa Pietsch Spices it Up with Peligroso Cinnamon Tequila

I sat down the other evening to taste Peligroso Cinnamon.  I knew Peligroso was good to begin with so I aerated it with the Vinturi Spirit Aerator to allow it to show me what it had.  As it happens, Peligroso Cinnamon has all the right stuff.  This isn’t some girly bottle of silliness with all sorts of additives. This is 84 proof Peligroso 100% Blue Weber Agave Silver Tequila with 100% natural cinnamon extract.

From its rich golden color to its sweet nose of natural cinnamon, we were pleased with the pour.  I found the nose somewhat reminiscent of the Big Red gum I remember chewing as a child.  Like De La Tierre Maple Tequila, I was pleasantly surprised by the very natural flavor.  It wasn’t an overpowering, over-the-top syrupy infusion but a bright spicy beverage with a warm, medium finish.

This is something I’d drink by the fire at the lodge after a day of downhill skiing.  If you want something for a liquid dessert that hits the spot without being overly sweet or heavy, this is it.  This is a sipper, a mixer, and a great juice to cook with.  In fact, it felt so much like dessert to me that I was inspired to use it in an apple crisp.

The Peligroso Cinnamon Apple Crisp made for a deliciously light dessert, not your grandmother’s apple crisp.  If you’re looking for a little something sugar free and diet friendly after your holiday ham, give this recipe a try:

Peligroso Cinnamon Apple Crisp

Ingredients:

2 Cans Light Apple Pie Filling

1/2 C Cranberries (dried or fresh)

1/4 C Peligroso Cinnamon Tequila

1T + 1t Saigon Cinnamon

1 C Oats

1 C Whole Wheat Flour

1/2 C Butter

1t Baking Soda

1 C Splenda

tequila, apple crisp, peligroso, cinnamon, apple crisp

Empty 2 Cans Light Apple Pie Filling (made with Splenda) into a crock pot.  Mix in 1/2 cup cranberries (I used Low Sugar Craisins, but you could easily use fresh), 1/4 cup Peligroso Cinnamon Tequila and 1 teaspoon Saigon Cinnamon.

Top with a mixture of 1 cup oats, 1 cup whole wheat flour,1/2 cup butter, 1 Tablespoon Saigon Cinnamon, 1 teaspoon baking soda and 1 cup Splenda.

Cover and cook on high until the syrup bubbles up from below, then leave on warm for about an hour.  Serves eight.

Whether you have it for dessert or breakfast, this is a guilt free recipe made extra tasty with Peligroso Cinnamon Tequila.

Sipping off the Cuff: El Arco Anejo

Tequila Aficionado’s Mike Morales and Alex Perez taste and discuss El Arco Anejo.

According to Gregory Meyer of El Arco Tequila Company:

The double oxygenation process is done post distillation by running the tequila over a stone like waterfall at 3 Mujeres (twice) right before bottling the blanco… This allows the tequila to oxygenate naturally and (open up) if you will…which we found produces a smoother tequila… There is no mechanical injection or force of Oxygen in the juice… We should probably explain that process better on our POS..everything we do at 3 Mujeres is “old process” “craft”..

This is done post distillation for all levels of tequila including all of the reposed class..

As you know we currently sell the Blanco and Anejo now in the US and will soon be bringing in our Rep and an Extra Anejo that is taking on a full 4 yr white oak barrel age and is to die for… 

It’s funny you say that it would be a great mixing tequila…you couldn’t be anymore right!… We have become a huge hit with mixologist as they love crafting cocktails with el Arco…we are very quickly becoming known as Mexico’s unofficial craft tequila and as such have been branding ourselves as such…

We have spread our wings to 7 states as of now and looking to turn on 3-5 more by spring of ’14
