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 Anejo is 100% blue agave’ from the highlands of Jalisco—which you may recognize as the very heart of Tequila-country. But everything else you want is there too… the brick ovens, Tohano mill-stone, and a minimum of three years aging in American oak casks. Perfecto!
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 Margarita—but fine Anejo Tequilas like this are best sipped neat like a fine Cognac with no lime or salt in sight.

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.
