Tapatio Tequila 110 Proof Blanco

Ignited by the challenge of releasing a ‘best of class’ tequila at the highest proof allowed by law (110 proof), Carlos Camarena, the iconic distiller of Mexico’s 75-year-old Tequila Tapatio brand has launched a 110-proof Tequila full of fresh agave flavors and uncommonly smooth.

Why a higher proof? Tequila consists of water, alcohol and flavors: reduce the water and you’ve increased the alcohol and flavors.  “The more intense flavors mean even better cocktails,” explains Marko Karakasevic, Master Distiller of Charbay Distillers (Tapatio’s U.S. importer). “Tapatio’s 110-Proof Blanco has huge florals and spicy cinnamon, plus chamomile and rich agave.”
