A brilliantly refreshing Blanco Tequila that more than "just" a pretty mixer.

Destiladora San Nicolas is located in Los Altos — the Highlands of Jalisco Mexico. The deep red, volcanic soil and high altitude has long been considered the best climate for producing great Blue agave. They were founded in 1996, growing quickly by producing their own San Nicolas brand of Tequilas. In 2008 they were purchased by the Campari Group. Now, nearly all production goes into Cabo Wabo and their own El Espolòn line of Tequilas.

El Espolòn says that their Tequila Blanco is "For Shaking," as in making cocktails. And they’re right. But that sells this quality Blanco short. This is the Spirit upon which the entire line of El Espolòn Tequilas is built. That means it’s 100% Weber Blue agave from Jalisco, Mexico, meticulously crafted in the traditional manner. Stand-out qualities include a soft, almost velvet mouth-feel and almost floral profile. So while it is a superior cocktail-making base, it is also a neat sipping Blanco all on its own.

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.
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.
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.
If the Tequila bottle label does not state that it’s manufactured from 100% Blue Agave, then, by default, that Tequila is a Mixto (manufactured from 51% Blue Agave).
In general, price of Tequila goes up with age, so añejos and extra añejos will be the most expensive and blancos the cheapest.
Tequila is like Champagne or Cognac. It has a Denomination of Origin, meaning it can only be produced in the Jalisco State, Mexico.
