Sipping Off The Cuff: Gracias a Dios Mezcal Tobala Joven

About Gracias a Dios Mezcal

Gracias a Dios is a double distilled mezcal, 100% artisanal, handmade with “piñas” from espadín agave and other varieties, ground and fermented in our own palenque in Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca, honoring fair trade with the help of maestro mezcalero Oscar Hernández Santiago.With a strong, aromatic and balanced flavor, this spirit is the product of a 4-generation family of maestros mezcaleros, who have traditionally kept the artisan processes of making this drink.

Suerte Tequila Extra Anejo Limited Editions

Established in 2012, Suerte Tequila was created by co-founders Laurence Spiewak and Lance Sokol, along with Master Distiller Pedro Hernandez Barba of Tequilera Simbolo. Based in the highlands of Jalisco, the family-run distillery and agave plantation employs traditional methods to produce their high quality spirits. To preserve the flavor and color of the spirit, the Master Distiller opts for micron filtering, rather than charcoal filtering, and relies mostly on gravity, not pumps and motors, to move the tequila from the holding tanks, through filtration to the bottling line.

Suerte Tequila Extra Anejo is a limited edition, single barrel, five year old 100% Extra Anejo Tequila. Each bottle represents an individual cask selection and is labeled with a unique batch number. Silky golden in color, when poured, aromas of baked pear, fruit pastry, honey and pepper emerge from the glass. Rich, complex flavors of caramel, nougat, and toffee lead to a slightly sweet, buttery finish.

Sipping Off The Cuff: Tiny’s Tequila Orange Blossom

TINY’S TEQUILA—-The Official Tequila of “Ladies Night Out”

From the Tiny’s Tequila Website:

When the inspiration behind Tiny’s Tequila, Grammy award winning singer/songwriter and reality TV star, Tameka “Tiny” Harris wanted to develop a line of premium infused sipping tequila’s she wanted to make sure of two things; it had to taste GREAT and it had to have minimal burn! With the introduction of our first two infusions, Orange Blossom (Honey-Orange) and Lime Light (Lime) we think that we have achieved both of those goals.

When it comes to great tasting tequila with a subtle finish, Tiny’s Tequila definitely hits the right note for people looking for the perfect blend of strong but sweet. It proves that synergy can be found between traditional, all natural ingredients and modern, new age refinement. The result is a line of award winning premium artisanal tequila infusions at an unbeatable value.

Whether it is going out with your girlfriends for a night on the town or just hanging out at a friend’s enjoying cocktails, Tiny’s Tequila is the perfect compliment for unforgettable moments……. Tiny’s Tequila, What You Gon Do ……?

Open Bar Show #3 – 2015 Brands of Promise Preview

 

Tequila Aficionado’s Mike Morales and Lisa Pietsch reveal the full list of nominees for the 3rd Annual Tequila Aficionado Brands of Promise Awards.

About the Brands of Promise Awards

The Tequila Aficionado Brands of Promise Awards began in 2013 as our response to a secondary industry that has sprouted up around awards programs in the spirits industry. In a very much pay-to-play world where large sums of money are involved in entering today’s contests and even more is required of winners in licensing fees to use the award logos on marketing, online and point of sale materials, we felt it was time that something change.

What Makes The Brands of Promise Different

We do not charge an entry fee to be considered for these awards, nor do we charge licensing fees for the winners to use the awards seal. You take your award with you as soon as you’ve won it. Winners simply download the high resolution images for their awards by clicking on the thumbnails here at www.TequilaAficionado.com.

We encourage winners to use them on their websites, brochures, social media, shelf talkers, and point of sale materials. We even provide a high resolution QR Code with the award seal on it that links directly to the award presentation. (In case you haven’t noticed, each of our Sipping Off The Cuff reviews receives a QR code that brands are always welcome to use online and in their marketing and packaging materials which links directly to their Sipping Off The Cuff review.)

Are You in the Running for 2016?

If you haven’t sent us your samples yet, what are you waiting for? Every tequila, mezcal, sotol and related product that we receive prior to August 15, 2016 will be considered for the 2016 Tequila Aficionado Brands of Promise Awards. Isn’t it time the world knew about your product? Email Mike@TequilaAficionado.com for instructions on how to send your samples in for review. All it costs is your postage.

Sipping Off The Cuff: Milagro Select Barrel Reserve Tequila Anejo

About Milagro:

It started in 1998 with two college friends, Danny Schneeweiss and Moy Guindi. Danny and Moy saw amazing things happening in the creative scene of Mexico City.

All around them, they saw new expressions of international sophistication, youthful energy and passionate creativity.

Everywhere except tequila.

Tequilas had become one-dimensional caricatures of tradition, or calculated celebrity-driven business ventures, devoid of creativity and truth.

Danny and Moy wanted a tequila that bridged two worlds — the deeply rooted integrity of traditional tequila, and the vibrant, creative culture of modern Mexico City.
