JLP Pomegranate Margaritas
Mike Morales and Lisa Pietsch get together for two very special episodes of Sipping Off the Cuff with JLP Margaritas. If you’ve been following us, you know that we’ve awarded the Golden Lime Margarita a Gold Medal but this is the first time we’ve had the opportunity to taste the Strawberry and Pomegranate flavors. Watch to see what we thought of the Pomegranate:
We have confirmation from brand owner, Javier Martinez, JLP is NOT diffused tequila. JLP is cooked in hornos de mamposteria for 72 hrs and then double column distilled.
About JLP Tequila:
Why we call it JLP The Presidents Tequila?
Back in 1758, Jesus Lopez Y Galindo(JLP descendant), Governor of the Villa of Tequila in the Jalisco region, gave possession of a Hacienda to Jose Antonio Cuervo in the name of King Carlos III of Spain.
It was there that in 1795 Maria Magdalena Ignacio Cuervo married Vicente Albino Rojas(JLP descendant) and founded the distillery “La Rojena.” They would become the first to receive the official concession to produce Tequila-Wine on the land that is today known as Tequila, Jalisco. It was in the 19th Century that the family brought in a German agronomist by the name of Franz Weber(who married into JLP’s family) to classify the Agave plant. Today it is known as Agave Tequiliana Azul Weber, the foundation for all fine tequila.
With this rich heritage it was only fitting that JLP would develop his very own Tequila.
