Terralta Blanco Tequila Review

 

From www.creospirits.com:

Sipping Off the Cuff | Terralta Tequila Blanco http://wp.me/p3u1xi-5a9I’m standing inside Destileria El Pandillo in Arandas, Jalisco. It is located approximately 80 miles from Guadalajara, deep in the highlands of the western Mexican state. The mad scientist moonlighting as a third-generation master tequilero, Felipe Camarena, is about to give me an extremely detailed tour of his laboratory responsible for making tequila Terralta tequila that might just set the bar for the future of tequila production.

If his last name sounds familiar, it is because you’ve probably sipped on some of his family’s legacy before. For starters, his cousin founded Camarena tequila, and his brother is the master tequilero behind bartender favorite, Ocho.

Tequila Tapatio and Tesoro de Don Felipe was founded by his grandfather.

Terralta is made with the following key steps:

  • Handpicked mature agave plants with the correct amount of brix’s levels that are shaved by jimadores that even take out the stem from the male agave plant that could add bitterness to the Tequila.
  • Same natural yeast that his grandfather used to used 80 plus years ago, (today many tequilas use synthetic yeast in order to get a larger yield) we don’t like adding anything that is not natural or could change its natural flavor or aromas.
  • Deep earth well water 140 meters or 459 feet with almost viscosity most feel even in the Blanco to the final product.
  • Custom made Stone oven that cooks and steams and cleans the agave from top to bottom so you don’t get under cooked agave.
  • 19,000 Thousand pound Steam roller that Felipe has converted in to a Mechanical Tahona that gently crushes the agave without breaking fibers that also cause bitterness.
  • Custom Copper stills that are cleaned by distilling water and steam before every batch.

Titanium Anejo Tequila Review

In this episode of Sipping Off the Cuff, Mike Morales and Rick Levy get their first taste of the new Anejo from the makers of Titanium Tequila.

From the Titanium Tequila Wesbite:

Sipping Off the Cuff | Titanium Tequila Anejo http://wp.me/p3u1xi-55SOur tequilas begin with the world’s finest 100% tequilana blue weber agave grown in the highlands of Jaslisco, Mexico.

Each of our agave plants are hand selected at the peak of their maturity full of sweetness and robust flavor. After harvesting the agave our jimadors carefully cut the agave down to the “piña”, or heart, leaving only the purest part of the agave plant for our tequila’s. Our agave is the highest quality agave found in the world creating a tequila like no other.

Our piña is then slowly roasted in a stainless steel autoclave. this cooking process is important in allowing for a consistent, sweet, and rich piña ready for fermenting as well as ensuring a clean outcome minimizing any possible bacteria build up. After roasting the piña is then shredded and juices extracted for fermenting.

Next is the fermenting which is done in an open air environment. This process is unrushed with a special strand of yeast added to control and create a consistently high quality spirit. The result is a luxurious, robust tequila ready for distillation. The tequila is then twice distilled in pot stills creating the finest small batch tequila available today.

Ghost Tequila Review

In this episode of Sipping Off the Cuff, Mike Morales and Rick Levy taste and discuss the latest tequila infusion, Ghost Tequila, infused with the infamous Ghost Pepper.

 

From the Ghost Tequila Website:Sipping Off the Cuff | Ghost Infused Tequila http://wp.me/p3u1xi-55U

Ghost Tequila is a glimpse of the possibilities that wait for us in the dark of night. It’s a celebration of the unknown, the surreal, and what lies ahead. Like a match struck in the dark, Ghost is the spark of excitement that runs down the spine after the lights go out.

A mysterious fusion of ghost peppers and 100% agave tequila, Ghost will fill you with fire—a brief, transfixing possession that’ll leave you bone-chilled and breathless. Whether you’re getting your kicks in a seedy dive or holding court with the chic and refined, Ghost is the perfect fuel for whenever the spirit strikes.

It all started with a Boston bartender. In 2011, Chris was working at a new tequila bar with 120 different tequilas that very few people wanted to drink. His solution: create a tequila shot that would grab attention, taste great, and go down easy. Through this process he realized that guests were looking for a little more spice in their night…and their drinks. The result was a ghost pepper infused shooter that became a reason to visit his bar.

And with that, Ghost was born–an affordable tequila so smooth that even the person with the worst spring break tequila story would enjoy. From at-home experimentation to distilling in Mexico, the hero of our story perfected the recipe that’s igniting shots and cocktails alike.

When you consider how many brands are brainstormed in a boardroom, a tequila born in a bar sounds a little crazy. But what began as a bartender’s passion project has exploded onto the scene. And through everything, our service industry roots remind us that we’re here to entertain guests, inspire bartenders, and serve a tequila that leaves you with memorable nights…without mornings of regret.

512 Reposado Tequila Review

ABOUT TEQUILA 512:

Sipping Off the Cuff | Tequila 512 Reposado http://wp.me/p3u1xi-4URSCOTT WILLIS WENT TO JALISCO IN SEARCH OF THE PERFECT ANYTIME TEQUILA. HE RETURNED WITH TEQUILA 512.
In Austin, tequila isn’t saved for special occasions. It’s a standard go-to. It’s one of the many things Scott loves about the town he calls home, and why he set out to create a tequila that could be enjoyed anytime.
In Jalisco he found Luis Trejo, master distiller at La Cofradia. Batch by batch, they made their way to the earthy, spicy yet surprisingly smooth tequila we bottle today. The magic moment came when Scott decided to add a third distillation, making the good juice they’d created together just a bit smoother.
Scott’s friends back in Austin loved the results. So did the judges at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, who awarded Tequila 512 Double Gold and Best In Show.
To this day, Scott returns to Jalisco to taste every new batch, ensuring each is as good as the last. Because when it comes to great tequila, taste is the only test that matters.

Pasote Anejo Tequila Review

Tasting Notes

Añejo: Flavor of roasted agave for a harmonious aroma of vanilla and sweet coconut. The palate is decadently rich and velvety smooth, tasting predominantly of roasted oranges and cinnamon due to the long aging period. The finish is long, warm, toasty and sweet, but the agave always shines through in this bottle.

About Pasote

pasote-tequila-bottlesNewly released and handcrafted by the scion of a family that has been distilling tequila since the early 19th century, Pasote Tequila pays tribute to the Aztecs, who were the first to distill agave.

Don Felipe Camarena’s family has been distilling tequila in Jalisco since the early 19th century. After his ancestor’s original distillery was destroyed and abandoned during the Mexican Revolution, Don Felipe switched gears, selling his prized blue agave to other distilleries. In 1937, he was finally able to open his own distillery, La Alteña, which he passed down to his grandson, Felipe J. Camarena.

The younger Felilpe was trained as a civil engineer, and many years later in 2007, Felipe followed in his father’s footsteps by opening a distillery of his own: El Pandillo. At El Pandillo, Felipe has constructed a series of original machines to optimize energy use and perfect the art of tequila-making. After harvest, Felipe roasts his agaves in a stone oven equipped with steam jets — the jets ensure that the agaves are cooked as evenly as possible, cutting down on cooking time and increasing yields. Next, the roasted agaves are ground and pressed in two different machines (once again of

Felipe’s design) which extract sugars from the plants’ fibers, making everything more easily fermented into alcohol. Once distilled, the tequila is proofed with rainwater that is collected using a rooftop funnel which Felipe (unsurprisingly) installed himself.

pasoteHandcrafted by Felip J. Camarena at El Pandillo, Pasote Tequilas pay tribute to the first agave distillers: the Aztecs. The Aztecs were some of the most ferocious fighters in history, and they often celebrated their victories by drinking the sacred agave plant.

Pasote Blanco Tequila is bottled immediately after distillation. The tequila is marked by an herbaceous aroma of perfectly roasted agave, similar to celery root and lime. With an exquisitely soft mouthfeel, the palate opens with zesty citrus leading to a combination of salt, jicama, and taro root. The finish is long, clean, and ever so slightly prickly with white pepper. A minerality derived from the rainwater used during distillation anchors the overall taste of this tequila.

Pasote Reposado Tequila is aged for six months in American ex-bourbon barrels. It has a delicate, fruit-forward fragrance of peach and licorice, leading to a warming palate of peppered pineapple and vanilla. The finish is sweet, clean, and spritzed with a hint of pink grapefruit.

Pasote Añejo Tequila is aged for one year in American ex-bourbon barrels, which mellows the flavor of roasted agave for a harmonious aroma of vanilla and sweet coconut. The palate is decadently rich and velvety smooth, tasting predominantly of roasted oranges and cinnamon due to the long aging period. The finish is long, warm, toasty and sweet, but the agave always shines through in this bottle.
