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.

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in El Espolòn Tequila Blanco and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
