Okay, sure, there are flowers, chocolate, hearts, but nothing says Valentine's Day more than Tequila Liqueur.

Agavero Tequila Liqueur is a distinctly Mexican spirit with a fragrant aroma and luscious texture. In Spanish, the word “proximo” mean “next” or “afterward.” Proximo Spirits is the exclusive importer for Agavera Camichines Distillers, located in the heart of Tequila country—Jalisco, Mexico. Agavera Camichines doesn’t translate directly, but the cultural meaning is “little fruit of the agave.” And … we think that’s pretty cool.

Agavera Camichines is setting its sights high. The company was founded on the 1800 Tequila brand and they have greatly expanded over the last few years. They produce a wide range of Tequilas and Teauila-based beverages and have recently made use of their experience to branch out into a range of Vodka, Gins, and Whiskey. 

Agavero Tequila Liqueur was invented by Tequila master Lazaro Gallardo in 1857. He originally created it just for his friends and special occasions and kept the simple recipe a secret. But the people of Jalisco clamored for more, and he finally made it a commercial product, revealing the secret, but not the artistry. 

Agavero Tequila Liqueur is made from a select blend of 100% blue agave añejo and reposado Tequilas that have been exclusively aged in new, medium-char French Limosin oak barrels … just like fine Cognac. Those Tequilas are blended and re-barreled with infused Damiana blossoms. It’s almost like making Gin or Saint Germain Liqueur from Tequila. But this is totally unique and emerges from the second casks as a distinctly Mexican spirit with a fragrant aroma and downright luscious texture.

SmartAss Corner:
Damiana flowers are small yellow blossoms that come from a shrub—Turnera diffusa. Its range extends from southern Texas all the way to western South America. The flowers have been used in folk medicine since forever and have a spicy-chamomile-like aroma. In all, the plant contains 22 bio-flavonoids and legend has it that the first Margarita used Damiana flowers instead of Triple Sec for flavor.

Tequila goes bad with time. Once you open a bottle of Tequila, you better be in the mood to drink it. Generally, you have one to two months before oxidization and evaporation diminish the Tequila quality and destroy the Agave flavor profile.
Tequila is like Champagne or Cognac. It has a Denomination of Origin, meaning it can only be produced in the Jalisco State, Mexico.
The strongest Tequila available for sale clocks in at 75% ABV (150 proof). This shouldn’t come as a surprise, but drinking huge amounts of this spirit is likely te-quil-a.
Need a salt shaker and lime? Nah. The Mexicans take their Tequila neat and prefer to leave the lime and salt for their margaritas. Wouldn’t be a bad idea to follow suit.

Tequila labeled Gold (Oro) is your indicator (i.e., red flag) that you’re dealing with a mixto Tequila - unaged silver Tequila that has been colored and flavored with caramel to give the appearance of aged Tequila.
In general, price of Tequila goes up with age, so añejos and extra añejos will be the most expensive and blancos the cheapest.
There are over 136 species of Agave. For Tequila to be officially called “Tequila,” it must be comprised of at least 51% of the Blue Weber Agave species.
