Surreal artist Frida Kahlo loved Tequila almost as much as she loved art, and her namesake Anejo elixir is as real as it gets.
Dorado, Pizzorni & Sons are the liquor brains behind Frida Kahlo Tequila. They developed this line of Tequilas—named after one of Mexico’s most famous artists—in cooperation with the Frida Kahlo Estate. Based in Florida and founded in 2005, Dorado, Pizzorni & Sons contract out the production of distilled spirits in Mexico and Piedmont, Italy. Their current brands include Roberto Cavalli Vodka and Frida Kahlo Tequila.
Frida Kahlo loved Tequila almost as much as she loved art. But even though Frida was judged by some to be a surrealist painter, her namesake elixir is as real as it gets. Frida Kahlo Tequila Reposado is aged after fermentation in American Oak casks for six to nine months before bottling. The result is smooth super-premium tequila to enjoy by itself or mix into a cocktail. Hand selected at the peak of maturity, the agave is slowed cooked inside an antique adobe brick oven; then steamed and cooled to remove any bitterness; and finally the agave is pressed to extract only the finest juices for a super-premium Tequila.
Purity is important too, in both the arts of painting and in Tequila-making. So you will not find any artificial colorings, “accelerants,” or flavorings added … es verdad! In short, it is everything that a Tequila-lover is looking for. Use it as a mixer if you must—it makes a great classic Brooklyn cocktail.

Frida Kahlo de Rivera was a well-known artist from Mexico and the wife of fellow Mexican artist Diego Rivera. Her iconic, brightly-colored, and strongly-lined paintings—mostly self-portraits—are somewhere between surrealist and Freudian expressions of her dream-life. Raise a glass in her honor.
