The volcanic soil of the highlands region in Jalisco, Mexico offers the perfect terroir for growing majestic Blue Weber agave. Known for its higher sugar content, it provides Tequila Corrido Blanco with its characteristically great balance of crisp and floral aromas. The agaves used are slow-cooked in tightly closed stainless steel ovens and are double distilled. The master distiller is an expert at knowing when to cut the “heads” and “tails” from distillation, taking only the best “heart” during the process for the tequilas. With each harvest and each distillation, the distillery pays homage to the tequila-making traditions and stories behind its evolution. From the smugglers of the past to the mixologists of the present, Corrido Tequila raises a glass to all that have played a role in living a life dedicated to craftsmanship, adventure, and love.
Each bottle of Tequila Corrido Blanco is adorned with a leather-tied guitar pick, paying tribute to the musicians who tell their stories through the Corrido, a ballad in a traditional Mexican style, having lyrics that narrate an event close to their hearts.
This blanco also provides a unique backdrop for cocktail enthusiasts. On the nose, you’ll find an enticing menagerie of aromas, such as cooked agave, grapefruit, and lemon, while spicy notes of cinnamon and cardamom are also present. On the palate, it’s silky and full-bodied, with a balanced range. It finishes smooth, with just a hint of butterscotch. These characteristics make it one of the most exciting tequilas to play with behind the bar, so it’s time to start mixing!
