Hermosa Tequila Bottle Beach

Hermosa Tequila Ultra Premium Tequila

Hermosa Tequila

I had the opportunity to try this new tequila that will be out later this month. Wow, I have tasted many tequila brands but this tequila was so smooth I ended up drinking most of the bottle. This is an ultra premium silver tequila that is very drinkable and hang-over free, no impurities and made from 100% Agave. They said they will be out with a reposado and añejo soon as both are in barrels right now.

What does Hermosa mean in english?
Hermosa means beautiful… and so much more something described as Hermosa is not only beautful but quite possibly the most amazing person/thing on this planet and for reasons you can not describe in any language!

They put together incredible tequila tastings with a very unique tequila brands mixed together with authentic Mexican food. I attended the 4EverTequila tasting at West End on 2/20/15 and had an amazing time.

Some of my favorites of the night were, Forrest with Arte NOM 1414 Seleccion it was a popular one. Rodolfo from Sin Rival was pouring Sin Rival Extra Anejo, Rosario with a Senda Real if you haven’t had it you must try it and Miguel introducing Aguila Real a new tequila from the highlands. If you wanted to take a short break from tequila tasting you could head over to the food and watch them make tortillas by hand and then have your choice of chicken, pork, beef, nopales… unforgettable Mexican rice, beans, quacamole… everything was incredible. I am looking forward to the next tequila event from 4EverTequila make sure you connect with them on Facebook so you don’t miss it, Salud!

Azunia Anejo Tequila

AZUÑIA AÑEJO TEQUILA REVIEW

AZUÑIA AÑEJO TEQUILA, is a ultra-premium sipping tequila that is aged no less than 12 months in American Oak barrels. Very smooth with a buttery finish of vanilla, chocolate and a nose full of fruit and caramel. A perfect tequila to enjoy straight or mixed in your favorite cocktail.

Quick Overview
100% Weber Blue Agave
Clay Hornos – 36 Hours
2 Times Distilled
Aged in American Oak Barrels – 12 Months Min
Craft Competition Gold Medal Winner 2013

Azuñia Tequila starts with only perfectly aged Weber Blue Agave, which grows harmoniously for 8 to 10 years in sun-drenched fields surrounding the small town of Amatitan. Each agave plant receives naturally produced rich nutrients from the fertile volcanic earth and a regime of seasonal weather.

While many producers source their agave from a variety of other growers, their agave is from acres owned and maintained by Sergio Zuñiga. This quality control produces consistency and full ripe flavors. Also allowing the agave plants to grow to the perfect peak of ripeness, between 8 to 10 years, or until the sugars are at the optimal level. The fields and rows are marked with the date each row of agave was planted. Expert Jimadors carefully hand-select the agave plants that are ready to be harvested, using a razor sharp tool called the coa, to cut the spiky leaves away from the precious core, the piña.

After each agave is harvested and split by hand, the prized piña is loaded onto a truck and transported to the distillery, where the process begins. The first step is cooking the piñas. For Azuñia Añejo they use the traditional clay ovens, called hornos, to steam the piñas, slow roasting each batch for up to 36 hours. The cooked piñas are then crushed in the pressing mills in order to extract the agave juice. Since the agave fibers may reabsorb much of the juice, the fibers are rinsed in order to obtain the optimal amount of juice from each press. The result of the wash is called aguamiel or honey water.

Other tequilas use commercial yeasts to speed up fermentation. Azuñia uses natural fermentation, which produces yeast naturally during the process. Azuñia tequilas ferment for 5 to 7 days, depending upon outside temperature and humidity—part of the natural fermentation process. Although it takes longer to ferment, only naturally produced yeast is in the tequila. This traditional method helps create the distinct flavor of Azuñia Tequila.

After the natural fermentation process, Azuñia Tequila is double distilled for purity. During the second distillation process, they separate the heads and tails of the juice, leaving only pure, clear tequila. Unlike others, Azuñia Tequila is then filtered one more time through our unique process in order to achieve its smooth, luxurious flavor.

After the fermentation, double distillation and final filtration, they achieve the perfect unaged tequila, which we call Platinum which is put into barrels for a minimum of 12 months creating Azuñia Añejo.

Hotmixology Party Box Margarita Mix Review

Margarita Monday is my favorite day of the week, as it becomes more popular week after week it was taking a bit longer to get a margarita. Problem solved with the best invention since margarita mix, Hotmixology Party Box Margarita Mix.
If you’re my age or green and care about the environment you used to pick up a keg and party all weekend, return the keg wash the glasses and rest up for next weekend. That tradition continues yet I have added Margarita Monday to my weekly celebrations and thanks to the Hotmixology Party Box Margarita Mix I have very little preparation. They created a premium margarita mix to be the perfect blend when mixed with premium tequila, not too sweet or too sour, a great melody of lemon and lime flavors with a citrus finish. They suggest you add 100% agave tequila (750ml-1.75ml) for what they call the Ultimate Margarita, I call it the Never Ending Margarita. DIY, I prepare a tray of glasses, a bowl of ice, a saucer with salt (for rimming) and a bowl of limes cut into wedges. It’s like a margarita buffet/build your own margarita, yet Hotmixology Party Box does all the work, no need to individually make margaritas and no watered down pitcher of margaritas.
Hotmixolgoy Party Box was made with two spouts one on top to pour your favorite spirit in (a 750ml works yet I use a 1.75ml for Margarita Mondays) then reseal, shake it for a minute, then use the spout on the side to pour a perfect cocktail. Party Box is 3 liters of premium mix there is room for 2 more liters so plenty of room to add your spirits, making just over 2 dozen cocktails. When you make a pitcher and add ice you tend to get a lot of ice melt, this invention makes the perfect cocktail that stays perfect for the duration of the party and if there is any left you can enjoy it days later. A great idea if you have a house full of guests is to make up a batch and put it in your refrigerator, Party Box will be there 24/7 making you the perfect host.
Hotmixology Party Box Margarita Mix has won awards in this very competitive segment. A gold medal from the Denver International Spirits Awards, a gold medal from Craft Competition and 92 Points from Hollywood Rated. Impressive yet I still think I’m the winner each time I buy the Party Box as I get 3 liters of premium margarita mix.
Here is how it works, it’s like a bartender in a box making margaritas for everyone at the party. The host of Hotmixology Dave Elger came up with this idea, working with his mixologists to create the perfect margarita mix, then he create a way to multiply it into the Hotmixology Party Box. The Hotmixology Party Box Margarita Mix is so easy, you can make margaritas in a few minutes before your guests arrive, no need to worry about making drinks individually, just enjoy the party. It’s also economical I spent less than $15 on the Party Box Mix, a little bit more for the tequila and I found 10 limes for a dollar, at that price I should do Margarita Muesday , Margarita Mednesday, Margarita Mhursday…

Santoyo Grand Leyenda Añejo Tequila Review

Santoyo Grand Leyenda Añejo Tequila is a great sipping tequila yet I was tempted to make a margarita and it was one of the best ever.

The Family Añejo embodies the full expression of the Santoyo values, traditions, and centuries of heritage, which have gone into the making of this tequila. Prepared only in small batches with the utmost care this tequila is aged for at least 2 years, achieving the classification of “Añejo.” It’s deep copper hues enthrall the eye, while the nose is pleasured by notes of caramel, almond and vanilla. On the palette, you find mild citrus opening notes leading in to butterscotch caramel and vanilla finishing. So smooth, sweet and it is organic. If you like these tasting notes visit Tequila of the Month each month as new tequila is featured.
