Espolón Tequila100% Pure Blue Agave | 0 Comments
CAPTURING MEXICO’S VIBRANT ESSENCE OF LIFE
Handcrafted with 100% pure Blue Agave, Espolón is an award-winning collection of super-premium tequilas that celebrates real Mexico and highlights its storied culture through classic 19th century artistry and the iconic rooster, a symbol of national pride. The decorative label on each Espolón bottle pays tribute to the Mexican artists who inspired the world with true portrayals of the country’s rich history and complex everyday life. Striking, artwork features the characters of Guadalupe, Rosarita and the proud rooster, Ramón, reliving Mexico’s engaging cultural stories and bringing this vibrant country’s essence to life.
Espolón is super premium 100% pure Blue Agave tequila, distilled and bottled at Destiladora San Nicolas, an artisan distillery in the Los Altos (highlands) region of Jalisco, Mexico. San Nicolas sets the standard for tequila production and was awarded the ―Best Tequila Factory in Mexico‖ by the School of Architects and Engineers of Jalisco. Master distiller, Cirilo Oropeza, brings multiple decades of expertise and careful craftsmanship to the creation of Espolón Tequila, applying as much artistry to the liquid as you will find on the label.
Product Range and Taste Profile
Espolón favors craftsmanship over mass production—to extract more rich, intense flavors, we cook our agave piñas for 18 to 20 hours (versus the industry average of 12) and our distilling process lasts 5½ hours (versus the industry average of 3½). Two expressions are now available in selected US markets, Blanco and Reposado, with vastly different labels telling the bold stories of fictional characters, Rosarita and Guadalupe.
Inspired to the bone, Guadalupe and Rosarita joined Father Miguel Hidalgo in his brave campaign for Mexican independence from Spain. As depicted in this label’s scene—an illustration inspired by 19th century artistry—our couple fought fiercely, and with undying passion. As Ramón the Rooster crowed his shrill battle cry, the brave army of revolutionists clashed against tyranny, against the cruel caste system, willing to sacrifice everything for the cause. And although their bold efforts fell short, this movement set the stage for Mexico’s eventual independence.
Espolón Tequila Blanco
Espolón Blanco Tequila flaunts an elegant, clean finish that ends with a hint of spice.
• Unaged – direct from distillation.
• Clear in color with a platinum cast.
• Delicate, sweet agave; floral, tropical fruit and lemon zest aromas with a hint of pepper.
• Soft mouth-feel, light to medium-bodied palate with bright agave flavor; notes of pepper, vanilla bean, grilled pineapple and spice.
Spain’s Hernando Cortés captured the Aztec capital of Tenochititlan, conquering its people and building Mexico City in its place. As illustrated in this label, Guadalupe and Rosarita reveled in the markets of this new metropolis, yet a pair of devilishly toothy grins hinted at their true intentions.
Driven by a passion for Aztec civilization – as their spirits had once played a role in this complex culture – our couple schemed to infuse elements of Aztec culture into every market in the country. Guided by Ramón the Rooster, they vowed that generations would benefit from this fallen society’s impressive achievements.
Espolón Tequila Reposado
Espolón Reposado Tequila flaunts a slow finish with a sweet spicy fade. A hedonistic Reposado that has Añejo-like wood spiciness.
• Aged 6 months in American oak barrels.
• Rich with a golden hue.
• Spicy, caramel aromas with a hint of chocolate.
• Bold, round mouth-feel leads to a medium-dry, full-bodied palate with rich roasted agave, sweet tropical fruit, intense vanilla and brown spices.
