Item #: 17100

Product Notes:
The name is Mayan for “life,” and Kah Tequila’s cultural roots extend to the Aztec and Meso-American observances of Dia de los Muertos, a.k.a. the Day of the Dead, Nov. 2. Kah would have been released in time for another important Latin American holiday—Mexico’s Cinco de Mayo—but its skull packaging prompted Crystal Head vodka’s parent company, Globefill, to wage a brief court battle. (Globefill’s motion to prevent Kah from coming to market was dismissed.)

Kah’s unique hand-painted ceramic bottles take their inspiration from Calaveras de Azucar—highly decorated sugar skulls used in Dia de los Muertos celebrations of rebirth and new beginnings. The colorful, four-bottle line arrives in stores next month.

Kah Blanco: Certified organic and characterized by its aromatic agave rush, followed by spicy white pepper and a pumpkin-floral finish.

Kah 110 proof Reposado: Universally pleasing, with a balance of sweet notes, oak and agave. A great foundation for organic margaritas.

Kah Añejo: Subtle woody notes with a smooth body, hints of vanilla spice and a sweet melon finish

Food Pairing:
Produced for rock singer Sammy Hagar, Cabo Wabo is an extremely smooth tequila that is perfect in margaritas or straight up with a wedge of lime.

About Varietal:
Tequila is usually bottled in one of five categories:
* oro ("gold") unaged tequila which is "joven y abogado" (young and adulterated) which means that caramel, fructose, glycerin and wood flavoring can be added to resemble aged tequila * a±ejo ("aged" or "vintage") û aged minimum 1 year but less than 3 years in oak barrels
* maduro ("mature," "ultra-aged," or "vintage") û aged minimum 3 year in oak barrels This is a new category which was established in March 2006, represented on the bottles as "Extra A±ejo".
The aging process changes the color of tequila, but the liquid can sometimes be colored with caramel to show a darker color, indicative of a longer aging process; a±ejos tend to be darker, the reposados slightly less dark, while the platas are not colored at all.[citation needed
It is a common misconception that some tequilas contain a 'worm' in the bottle. Only certain mezcals, usually from the state of Oaxaca, are ever sold con gusano, and that only began as a marketing gimmick in the 1940s. The worm is actually the larval form of the moth Hypopta agavis that lives on the agave plant. Finding one in the plant during processing indicates an infestation and, correspondingly, a lower quality product. (Note: for more information on how tequila is made, see mezcal.) However this misconception continues, and even with all the effort and marking to represent Tequila as a premium -- similar to the way Cognac is viewed in relation to brandy -- there are some opportunist producers for the shooters and fun market who blur these boundaries
