Aguamiel (literally meaning “honey water”) is another name for the sap that runs from the Mexican maguey plant and is believed to have therapeutic properties. Therapeutic isn’t exactly what one would associate with tequila, but it’s had exactly that effect on our founder.
Finding himself working a job he despised that limited him from spending quality time with family, our founder decided he needed to step back and recalibrate. He was initially drawn to Mexico for the sunshine, beach, surf and large family style dinners but what held his attention upon arrival was the incredible quality of the tequila and how significant it was to Mexican culture.
Tequila is a true family business, the farmers having been involved in the industry for generations and the master distillers have 50 to 60 years experience perfecting their craft. Upon meeting with Master Distiller Agustin Sanchez Rodriguez in Jalisco, Mexico, our founder knew he had to share the adventure he experienced in Mexico with the world.
A new premium tequila was born. Each agave plant used to produce Aguamiel Tequila is aged a minimum of eight years, and is then hand selected and cut before its distillation in copper pots and roasted in traditional brick ovens to release its sweet nectar.
Aguamiel Tequila stands for family, passion and hardwork but furthermore for having the courage to take bold chances in life in order to discover what’s possible.
|Nose||Clear in colour, Aguamiel has a complex yet delicate nose. Emanating scents of sweet agave are accentuated by the aroma of tropical fruit and citrus which are complimented by notes of fresh botanicals and volcanic minerals.|
|Palate||The bright agave flavour introduces a light to medium-bodied palate with hints of black pepper and vanilla bean that are enveloped by the sweet nuances of grilled pineapple and lemongrass.|
|Finish||The finish is clean and warm with layers of spice, white pepper and green vegetables.|
|ABV/Proof||40% abv (80 – proof).|
