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

Sipping off the Cuff: Embajador Reposado

Tequila Aficionado’s Alex Perez and Mike Morales taste and discuss Embajador Reposado tequila.

Embajador Reposado

The Aztec legends tell of the origin of Earth, and of an evil Goddess in the heavens named Tzintzinmitl.

Tzintzinmitl blocked the light of the Sun and kept the Earth in darkness. Quetzalcoatl, supreme God of the Earth, grew weary of her abuse and rose into the sky to put an end to the injustice. On his way, he encountered the fertile diva Mayahuel, granddaughter of Tzintzinmitl. He fell instantly in love with Mayahuel and took her back to Earth to live with him.

When Tzintzinmitl realized what Quetzalcoatl and Mayahuel had done, she went mad with rage and set out to find them. They hid from Tzintzinmitl but she pursued relentlessly. Desperate, the two lovers turned themselves into trees, thinking that Tzintzinmitl would not be able to find them. They dreamt that when the wind blew they could lightly brush against each other and in some way remain together forever.

The evening stars saw what Quetzalcoatl and Mayahuel had done and revealed the plot to the wrathful Goddess. Tzintzinmitl wanted to destroy Quetzalcoatl. She cast a powerful bolt of lightning that struck Mayahuel dead. Grieving and furious, Quetzalcoatl buried the remains of his beloved and advanced to the sky. With help from the Gods, he slew Tzintzinmitl, and thus was the Earth freed from darkness.

The Gods witnessed Quetzalcoatl’s grief and sought to comfort him. They caused a marvelous plant to grow from the exact spot where his cherished Mayahuel was buried. This plant they called Agave. It is a plant thought to have special properties. Agave produced an elixir that would comfort Quetzalcoatl’s soul. He shared his drink with man, who would christen it “Tequila…”
