On a brisk fall evening, what better to warm you up than tequila. In October we attended the 3 Amigos Tequila Tasting. We learned about how tequila is made and the history of the 3 Amigos Tequila company.
I was prepared with my coat and long pants to keep me warm. Not knowing what the temperatures would be like as the event was held outside. It was a great set up because there was a roof over our heads but an open-air seating with no walls. They had a fireplace lit. With many chairs set up around the fireplace. This is where we started, in comfortable chairs by the fire to listen to the presenter from 3 Amigos Tequila.
3 Amigos Tequila taught us about the following Tequila products:
Blanco – It is made from 100% Ripe Blue Agave. The Blanco is grown in Los Altos de Jalisco. It is crafted for sipping and making premium cocktails.
Reposado – Is Blanco rested in charred white oak barrels for eleven months. The Reposado inherits traits of the charred barrels and has the hints of blue agave.
Añejo – is Blanco and aged for two years It soaks in the traits of charred white oak barrels. It is reported to carry an initial taste of agave, wood, vanilla, light caramel body.
Extra Anejo – Comes from 100% Blue Agave Tequila from Los Altos de Jalisco. It is then aged for 8 years in white American charred oak.
Ramona’s Reserve Tequila Liqueur – It is infused with the “Double Gold” award winning 3 Amigos Anejo Tequila and 100% Blue Agave nectar.
My favorite was the Ramona’s Reserve Tequila Liqueur because it was smooth. I can see myself sipping that liqueur. Have you been to a tequila tasting? If yes, where was it?
