Refreshing Spring Libations Using Altos Tequila
Spring has arrived, my friends, and I am so happy to finally announce that I’m partnering with Olmeca Altos Tequila to bring you exciting recipes, hosting tips, and more over the next few months. To kick things off right, I included one of my favorite Altos cocktail recipes that is the perfect refreshing libation, certain to get you in the spirit of Spring. But first, a little about Altos Tequila.
Altos’ Master Distiller, Jesus Hernandez, and internationally renowned UK bartenders, Henry Besant and Dre Masso, are to thank for this affordable, high-quality tequila. It’s exclusively produced 7,000 feet above sea level, smack dab in the heart of Los Altos. What makes it truly unique, apart from its location, is the use of the 500-year-old traditional Tahona method in conjunction with the roller mill process, before being distilled in small copper pot stills. Altos is one of the only tequila brands in the world still using the Tahona wheel to crush their roasted agave.
Olmeca Altos’ Award Winning Tequilas
Altos Tequila is available in two varieties: Altos Plata and Altos Reposado
Think fruity, a tad citric and deliciously sweet aromas of cooked agave. A well-balanced tequila with a long-lasting aftertaste. The Plata is bottled immediately after distillation, with no time left to age.
Sweet, fruity and citric aromas; integrated with vanilla, cooked agave and woody notes. Unlike Plata, Reposado gets aged for 6-8 months in 200-liter white American oak ex-Bourbon casks.
