Forget Gin & Tonic - here's El Rayo Tequila!
The story of El Rayo Tequila starts with two lads from South London: Jack Vereker and Tom Bishop, childhood friends from Peckham. One day, they chilled and sipped on Tequila that was so delicious it changed their preconceptions of what Tequila can be (great booze will do that sometimes). Bewitched by the flavors, they quit their jobs and flew to Guadalajara in what we imagined looked like one of those fast-paced Guy Ritchie montages. They assembled a crack team of artists and artisans in Mexico, building a 100% natural Tequila designed to be paired with tonic. Yas, you heard us: Tequila & Tonic are the new refreshing ritzy combo in town! Their secret? Slow-grown Blue Agave from the Highlands, and Maestro Tequilero Oscar Garcia - one of only 250 Maestros in the world.
El Rayo Plata Tequila ('The Clear One') is a crystalline elixir that focuses solely on the flavors of the Blue Agave. It's produced at Hacienda La Capilla (est. 1999) with modified copper pot stills from an ancient Brandy distillery in Saltillo. The deep well water and Agave grown in soil rich in copper in iron give this Tequila a unique terroir character with distinct fruity sweetness. The No. 1 best-selling premium Tequila on Amazon will make you forget Gin when you look at your tonic.
