Product Notes:

Supple delicate aromas of agave, green banana, fresh bell pepper, light citrus, clean floral and nuances of white pepper are very inviting.

The body is medium weight and the mouth-feel is very clean. The finish lingers lightly showing the fruit, flowers and spice in a soft fade. Aroma: Fruity (banana, light citrus, green bell pepper), agave and clean white flowers (orange/lemon blossoms), white pepper and hint of earth.
Taste: A light, sweet agave carry the aromas across the palate with slight minerals.
Body: Medium

• Delicate aromas balance with elegant fruit nuances to make this excellent as a shot or wonderfully displayed in classically structured cocktail vibrant with the Sangre de Vida. Little white skulls made of sugar are sweet gifts that are given to both the living and the dead for Dia de los Muertos. They symbolize death and rebirth and are given to friends and family as an invitation to “eat their own death,” acknowledging the belief that death is nothing but the passing from this life into the next. In Boliva, Day of the Dead is celebrated with decaying skulls and is known as Day of the Skulls. Families keep the skulls of their loved ones, the decaying heads are brought out each year on November 8th and taken to the cemetery were they are fed, given cigarettes and tequila. Keeping and entertaining the skulls of the deceased is seen as a way for the dead to be immortalized. They believe the skulls of their ancestors protect the living by warding off evil spirits.

110 PROOF REPOSADO
This reposado is excellent; 110 Proof and so pleasing. There is an amazing dance that happens between the sweet tones (caramel, baked agave, stewed citrus, orange, slight-vanilla), the spices and structure. The proof is pleasantly obvious, clean alcohol pushes the flavors quickly across your palate. The finish is where the flavors dawdle and demonstrate an energetic magnificence. With the lithesome flavors and the alcohol proof this tequila is mystifying in its precarious balance between alcoholic proof and delicious flavors. Aroma: Fruity, sweet mild agave and caramel.
Taste: Pleasant sweet agave, citrus, pepper and oak pushed by snappy, crisp, clean alcohol.
Body: Sapid, warming, medium weight that seems much lighter than it is because of the proof.
Finish: Lasts forever and is where most of the flavors reveal their depth with a touch of clean warmth. • NOM 1438
• 110 Proof
• 100% Blue Weber Agave
• Double Distilled in Copper Pot Stills
• Small Batch, 3x’s Filtered
• Aged a ‘minimum’ 3 Months in American Oak
• Assertive aromatics with balanced bold flavors make this a perfect Tequila for delicious classic cocktails or exciting, playful long drinks pumping with Sangre de Vida.
El Diablo was inspired by the Day of the Dead celebrations that take place on the banks of Lake Titicaca in Peru in honor of Satan. This region of Peru is mostly a mining area and workers spend much time underground. According to ancient Incan beliefs, Satan lives underground making the mine-workers very vulnerable to his powers due to their daily proximity. To honor the devil, traditional dances (complete with dangling red crucifixes) are dedicated to Satan along with tequila poured on the ground for the devil to drink.

TEQUILA ANEJO
Delicate scents of oak, caramelized honey, mahogany, sweet potato, vanilla, stewed flowers and pear all held together by baked agave are evocative. The flavors cleanly follow suit with a soft palate that is elegant and rich adding a touch of coffee & chocolate (just a touch). The finish is layered, iterate and supple with a rich lengthy show of all the flavors and adding some earthiness to all the richness.
Aroma: Agave, oak, caramelized honey, mahogany, sweet potato, vanilla, stewed flowers and oxidized pear.
Taste: The flavors follow the aroma with some elegant surprises.

• Full, agave forward aromas transport you from the noises of the world outside inviting you to take a moment of reward experiencing this lovely, complex añejo.Sip this with time to enjoy the many nuances and rich flavors of Sangre de Vida. The Nicaraguans celebrate Day of the Dead by reinforcing their emotional connection with loved ones that have passed by sleeping at their gravesite. While they perform similar traditions such as decorate graves, bring food, tequila and set up alters to honor the dead, sleeping at the gravesite brings a whole new meaning to “rest in peace.”



About Estate:
