Tequila Tizoc Blanco

Tequila Tizoc Blanco is 100% Agave and bottled directly after distillation. Tequila Tizoc Blanco is perfect to enjoy neat, on the rocks, or in your favorite cocktail.

Tequila Tizoc, 100% de origen, offers not only flavor, but also the unforgettable experience of a true Tequila: one which pays tribute to one of the most renown and fascinating Mexican traditions worldwide.

The reward of the wait – The long years invested in the maturing of the Agave – is prominent the instant Tequila hits the palate, releasing more than 100 aromas that culminate in a delicious spirit.

Tequila Tizoc harvests each Blue Agave after a period of 7-9 years, during which the plants nutrients saturate the "piña" or the heart of the Agave.

Once the Agave reaches the point of optimal maturity, the expert hands of Tequila Tizoc jimadors cut the pencas and remove the piña, and then cut and cook them in an oven, during which the starches are converted to sugars.

Tequila Tizoc History
Maria Sabina, the Mexica healer, the "shaman", introduced to the world the ritual known as "the velada", a healing and purifying ceremony through the interaction with “angels” and use of hallucinogenic mushrooms.

It is rumored that several cultural and social celebrities of the recent century such as "Che" Guevara, Bob Dylan and John Lennon among others, visited Maria in her native Sierra Mazatecan in search of the purification of their souls.

In the mid 1950's, Pedro Infante delivered to Maria as an offering, a bottle of Tequila Tizoc.  As the legend goes, since then and even after her death Maria has been seen imbibing this exquisite spirit.

I'd never heard of this brand before I was fortunate enough to get my hands on a drink of it. It is only sold in Mexico, so those of you who are hoping to get your hands on some are going to have to make a trip south of the border. That's terrible...because it's damn good.

Aroma: Cooked agave, loaded with citrus and hints of grass. A great blanco nose.
Initial Taste: Big agave flavor with lemon. A great entry.
Body: A thicker body for a blanco. Loads of agave, citrus and a nice pepper kick. Just a hint of grass to round it out.
Finish: A very smooth, medium length finish with a nice agave linger and a decent pepper kick. A very nice finish to a really good blanco.

What a great blanco. Well rounded and it has great flavors that hit every part of the tongue. Really easy to drink and delicious through the whole experience. I like the globe bottle. It's says Mexican to me...and the juice inside does as well.
