Sipping off the Cuff: Santera Tequila Anejo


 

Santera Tequila

Santera_Tequila_LogoSantera Tequila is produced and bottled by Destilladora de Valle de Tequila, Casa Maestri in Tequila, Jalisco, the heart of Mexico’s blue agave growing and tequila producing region. The creation of Santera Tequila begins with the perfectly matured blue weber Agave. The agave plant is grown in the red volcanic soil of the dormant Volcán de Tequila in the northern highlands of Jalisco. The 10,000-foot Volcano last erupted 22,000 years ago, forming the only environment in the world where agave grows in perfect harmony with the climate. This is the lifeblood of Santera Tequila.

Tequila Aficionado’s Tequila & Mezcal Road Show, Part 3

[From October 14 to October 28, 2015, Tequila Aficionado Media, accompanied by 33 expressions representing 19 brands, embarked on an epic RV road show christened, The Dia de los Muertos Tequila & Mezcal Tour.  In these next passages, we recount the historic–and hysteric–highlights.] 

TacoGuild

Church, Tacos, and Tequila With Roger Clyne

Phoenix, Arizona

One of the highlights of Tequila Aficionado Media’s breakthrough Dia de los Muertos Tequila & Mezcal Tour was lunch with indy rock legend Roger Clyne of Roger Clyne and The Peacemakers.

2015-10-21 10.44.42

After graciously posing for a quick photo outside our Cruise America RV with Lisa’s boys, we anxiously followed Roger and his lovely and elusive wife, Alisa, inside the historic Taco Guild gastropub, a deconsecrated Methodist church where he had recently conducted an exclusive tasting for fans of his Mexican Moonshine Tequila.

2015-10-21 11.03.53

Having spent most of my young life inside churches, my first inclination was to

2015-10-21 10.49.41

speak reverently in whispers.  Like most places of worship, the Taco Guild had its original stained glass windows and acoustically high ceilings that amplified the din of the lunch time crowd.

It didn’t take long before whispering was futile and more tequila and cocktails were needed.

Next On Deck

After ordering and savoring some delicious taco plates, Alisa and Roger clued us in on what was ahead for Mexican Moonshine tequila.

2015-10-21 12.17.17

Not only were they planning an extensive 2015 fall tour, but they were also gearing up for 2016’s annual Circus Mexicus.  But, there was another surprise–

The exclusive Mexican Moonshine extra añejo in a ceramic, commemorative 20th anniversary collector’s bottle depicting the “Fizzy Fuzzy, Big & Buzzy” album by Roger’s then group, The Refreshments.

2015-10-21 11.04.00

The band financed the effort so successfully via an Indiegogo campaign that the extra funds enabled them to parlay Mexican Moonshine as a featured tequila in twenty locations–including their own branded cantinas– throughout Chase Field, the home of the Arizona Diamondbacks baseball club for the 2016 and 2017 seasons.

Tequila Tasting With Roger Clyne

A staunch reposado enthusiast, Roger was making it his personal journey to research extra añejos in order to help him define his preferred flavor profile

Known for their varied and extensive tequila menu,

naturally, an impromptu tequila tasting ensued courtesy of the Taco Guild’s gracious bar manager.

After selecting and sampling a variety of tequilas from other producers with varying production methods,

2015-10-21 10.51.14

including some exclusive ultra añejos from behind the Taco Guild’s sacred bar for over an hour, it was time to say goodbye to Roger and Alisa.

2015-10-21 10.49.15

After supplying the Clynes with a bottle of blanco tequila and an añejo mezcal (for educational purposes, of course!), we hefted our bulging bag of leftovers onto the Cruise America RV.

Playing Catch Up

On the way back to our RV park, we stopped at the local supermarket to stock up on supplies for the what we expected would be the crown jewel of our tour–

The Grand Canyon.

After catching up on our required social media chores, a light dinner was in order along with sips of Mestizo Mezcal to chase away the creeping chill of the Arizona evening.

Tequila Aficionado | Open Bar 14 | De La Tierre Maple Tequila Liqueur

Tequila Aficionado’s Open Bar

maple liqueurEach Monday evening at 7pm Central, we have one new guest on our live show, Open Bar.  This week’s guest was Wayne Rezunyk of award winning De La Tierre Maple Tequila Liqueur.

We use the Blab.im platform for these Open Bar shows. Blab is easy to use, more interactive than a phone call, but just as easy to participate in.

De La Tierre Maple Tequila Liqueur

De La Tierre TequilaMaple Cinnamon Truffles, maple tequilaThe story is simple, It all started out with an epiphany that hit Troy Bilodeau January 31st 2010.

A then long time friend Wayne Rezunyk and Troy put their heads together and started testing that day, this was followed with a little research (tasting) okay okay a lot of research, then they agreed that they maybe on to something. Countless hours of, testing and researching and the duo came up with what is now “De la Tierre” Canadian Maple Tequila. With a lot of effort, belief, luck and unquenchable desire to make this spirit a true blend of Canadian and Mexican taste at their finest, “De la Tierre” Canadian Maple Tequila was born !

maple tequila scones recipeExtensive “testing and researching” later and partnering with Ralph Berezan who had the same desire and vision, we are now able to offer a unique flavored Tequila, the only Canadian Maple flavored Reposado currently on the world market. The name De la Tierre is slang in Spanish for “from the Earth or of the Earth” as both the Canadian Maple tree and the Mexican Agave plant are grown in the Earth.

No longer just for our friends and family, you are invited to enjoy this very special blend of spices, 100% pure Canadian maple syrup, mixed with a gold medal winning 100% Blue agave Reposado Tequila from Mexico. “De la Tierre” Canadian Maple Tequila will be available for the enjoyment of all.

We hope you enjoy the plethora of tastes that this flavored Tequila has to offer!

El Viejito

El Viejito is a classic Mexicano tequila company, claiming roots back to 1937.

The distillery is located in the town of Atotonilco, approximately 98 km (60 miles) from Guadalajara, in the “Highlands” of the State of Jalisco in Mexico. This region is recognized, among other things, for having the best soil, climate, water and altitude to grow Agave plants and of course for the quality of the tequilas produced in this region.

All of El Viejito’s 100% blue agave tequilas show moderate to macho agave intensity and flavor, with pepper and citrus as secondary notes. High quality water, ripe agave and lots of experience combine to produce the premium tequila they have been making since 1937.

“El Viejito” was one of the founders of the Tequila Regulatory Council in 1994.

Cleo in Pool with AquaRIva, Aqua RivaMeet Cleo Rocos, Co-star of BBC TV Kenny Everett Show, author of the “Gourmand Prize” winning book “The Power of Positive Drinking”, West End Producer and is the creator of award winning AquaRiva® Tequila.

In 2009 Cleo was honoured with a prestigious award by the tequila industry in Mexico. She decided to create AquaRiva® Tequila as she could not find a premium, smooth 100% agave tequila at an affordable price. Cleo’s 100% Agave AquaRiva® Tequila range is made from hand-selected eight-year-old Blue Weber agave plants and volcanic spring water from the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico.

CleoBarrels, Aqua RivaCleo spent over 11 months working with a master blender in Mexico, to create the 3 profiles of AquaRiva® Premium Tequila. She gives master classes in tequila and is a spirits judge. Cleo wanted to minimise the burn often found in tequila and leave the warmth and agave flavours. It’s a very long process to get right, reducing the burn and also reducing the methanol to a very, very low level, so really reducing the hangover people experience.
The label is an image of a couple dancing on the wing of an airplane. Cleo commissioned a 17-year-old art student who she met on the subway to paint the original.
AquaRiva® Tequila can be sipped and savoured as a short drink. It is perfectly balanced for cocktail enthusiasts and bartenders. Cleo has developed AquaRiva® Organic Agave Syrup, already in use in bars, restaurants and clubs Nationwide, enabling drinkers to enjoy sugar-free, reduced calorie versions of all cocktails such as Margaritas, Cosmopolitans and Mojitos etc.
