Angel’s Spirits Imports Announces New CA Distribution for Premium Tequila Brands

September 30 – Weslaco , TXAngel’s Spirits Imports and Pale Horse Imports have agreed to supply a new top-shelf 100% Agave Tequila,Mamalon Tequila in California . A new retail outlet for Mamalon Tequila is Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido , CA. Holiday Wine Cellar also has an extensive online store with the ability to sell and ship Mamalon Tequila to 47 states in the USA.

Mamalon Tequila is:

mamalon¨ 100% Blue Agave

¨ Ultra Premium Tequila

¨ Triple Distilled

¨ Fermentation process is 100% natural

¨ Made from 8 to 10 year old Blue Agave plants

¨ Manufactured by one of the largest distillers in Mexico with more than 50 years experience

¨ Bottle top doubles for a perfect 50ml shot of Mamalón that can be either immediately enjoyed, or gifted to your friends.

¨ A pure Agave flavor that experts call the smoothest available   — “Ultra Smoooooth” —


Mamalón Silver Tequila is triple distilled, resulting in a tequila that is ultra pure, uniquely full of agave flavor, and is described as “Ultra Smoooooth.”

nom listTequila is made by distilling the fermented juice of agave plants harvested in Mexico . The agave is a spiky-leafed member of the lily family (it is not a cactus) and is related to the century plant. By Mexican law the agave spirit called Tequila can be made only from one particular type of agave, the Blue Weber Agave (Agave Tequiliana Weber), and can be produced only in specifically designated geographic areas, in the state of Jalisco in west-central Mexico .

All superior tequila starts with only the best “Silver” or “Blanco.” Mamalon Silver is simply in a class all by itself, it is the perfect Blanco. Mamalon Silver Tequila begins as carefully selected mature Blue Agave plants, which have met our strict requirements for water and sugar content.

In order to produce the smooth, robust agave flavor, Mamalón Silver is made with traditional methods. The rich agave pinas are slow-cooked in stone ovens. After the perfect cooking time, we extract the sweet nectar from only the core and hearts of the agaves.

The fermentation process is 100% natural, ensuring the tequila is influenced by the unique outside ensemble of the agave, fruit trees, and other plants that surround the hacienda. Mamalon is then distilled in stills lined with copper three times to produce that “Ultra Smoooooth” rich Agave flavor.

Triple distillation provides Mamalón an extremely robust Agave flavor, with just the right amount of warm mouth feel, as it passes over the tongue and down the throat.
