We are extremely happy campers to welcome a new fantastic tequila on board – say hola to Tequila Cabeza!
Since launching in 2012 with The 86 Co., Cabeza has had an awesome response from the industry. The Ultimate Spirits Challenge awarded it 93 points and deemed it ‘excellent, highly recommended’, Diffords Guide gave it 5 out of 5 stars, Spirits Review judged it 9 out of 10 and Beverage Tasting Institute presented it with a Gold Award, with an ‘exceptional’ 93 points. Cabeza is definitely something to be excited about!
What’s the background?
The making of Tequila Cabeza is a real family-run operation. The Vivanco family have been cultivating agave in the Los Altos region of Jalisco for five generations and have been making tequila now for three. All the agave used in Tequila Cabeza comes from their land and they handle every part of production, which is still overseen by Falicio Vivanco, the head of the family, who is now in his eighties.
What does it taste like?
The 86 Co. were searching for a tequila that truly tasted of agave and worked with the Vivanco family to craft the ideal taste that they were after.
Tequila Cabeza tasting notes:
‘On the nose there is a bouquet of highland agave that captures both the earthiness and the honey of the agave while adding complex layers of green vegetables and a nice dose of minerality. More of the green vegetables, earthiness and some green pepper enter softly on the palate at the start before you are hit with a robust and earthy agave bomb on the mid-palate that comes with a dash of light citrus on the sides of the palate. It is medium to full- bodied with a velvety mouth feel and finishes with a light bitter citrus, more cooked agave flavours and black pepper. This Tequila is all about earthy cooked & raw agave flavours.’
Ultimate Spirits Challenge described the tasting notes as:
‘Toasted seeds and spices such as coriander seeds, with a lovely fruity temperament. An easy, soft and fruit driven tequila that is light in body and character.’
Enjoy this exceptional tequila now at El Camion and way, way into the night downstairs in The Pink Chihuahua bar.
