A cocky Tequila to wake up your mind.

Master Distiller Arturo Fuentes Cortes has been producing proper Tequila for a while, diligently working on the perfect recipe. Growing up in the shadow of the Tequila volcano in the town of Tequila, it was only natural. Once he had captured the true essence of Mexico in Spirit form, all he needed was a brand. Enter Rooster Rojo, the red rooster, a symbol of Mexico. Locally-crafted from the finest agave juice, Arturo's Tequila is lovingly made at the Fabrica de Tequilas Finos distillery that operates from an old colonial building.

This premium Tequila is made from 100% blue Weber agaves from the Los Altos region. Cut and cooked for 10 hours with the help of steam, the juice is then fermented with the distiller's special yeast strain and distilled twice in stainless steel pot stills. To blend this Blanco, Rooster Rojo used water filtered through Mexican silver, creating its sumptuously smooth profile. Cock-a-doodle-damn!

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.

Tequila goes bad with time! Once you open a bottle of Tequila, you better be in the mood to drink it. Generally, you have one to two months before oxidation and evaporation diminish the quality of the Tequila and destroy the Agave flavor profile.

Tequila labeled Gold (Oro) is your indicator (i.e., red flag) that you’re dealing with a mixto Tequila - unaged silver Tequila that has been colored and flavored with caramel to give the appearance of aged Tequila.
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.
Tequila is like Champagne or Cognac. It has a Denomination of Origin, meaning it can only be produced in the Jalisco State, Mexico.
Tequila labeled Gold (Oro) is your indicator (i.e., red flag) that you’re dealing with a mixto Tequila - unaged silver Tequila that has been colored and flavored with caramel to give the appearance of aged Tequila.
In general, price of Tequila goes up with age, so añejos and extra añejos will be the most expensive and blancos the cheapest.
