Tres Agaves Tequila is made from agaves matured to an average of 9 years and produced in the 'old school' tradition by one of Mexico's most respected Tequila families at their boutique distillery located in the very soul of Tequila country - the historic city of Tequila itself. The distillery, El Llano, began production in 1900 and is one of the oldest in all of Jalisco. The master distiller is the town's former mayor and a fifth generation artisan who specializes in smallbatch, handcrafted Tequila. The Tres Agaves Blanco is a pure expression of the distiller's craft capturing the flavors of slowly-cooked, fully-mature agave. This Bianco has won many awards including Chairman's Trophy Winner of the Ultimate Cocktail Challenge for the Tequila Sunrise and listed as the #2 Blanco by TheFiftyBest.com.
Wine EnthusiastRelatively restrained, this blanco has just the slightest tinge of straw color and an invitingly warm, herbaceous aroma. On the palate, it's light bodied, with citrusy and savory, almost saline notes, and a faint campfire-smoke aroma. The modest flavors and balanced alcohol should make for food-friendly pairings.
