Señor Rio Tequila

100% Agave - Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico

Señor Rio Tequila originates from 100% blue weber agaves grown in the arid red clay soil of Jalisco, Mexico. It is distilled only twice to preserve the true agave flavor. The hearts of the agaves, or piñas, are harvested by hand and slow cooked in traditional stone ovens.

Señor Rio is available in three types: the Blanco, the Reposado, and the Añejo. The Blanco (meaning “white”) is clean and crisp, yet perhaps what is most appealing is the hint of citrus that can be noted in the back of the palette, leaving a smooth finish.  This is due to the open tank fermentation process which captures the fragrance from the mango and citrus trees surrounding the distillery. The Reposado (meaning “rested”) comes from aging the Blanco for six months in French white oak barrels from Tennessee. These barrels previously stored whiskey, and this element creates a finish in the tequila that is a nice balance of oak and honey.  Finally, the Añejo (meaning “aged”) comes from aging the Blanco for two years in French white oak barrels. This process reveals a marked aroma of the wood and a semi-heated finish along with depth, full-body, and intense flavor. This gentleman’s spirit has been referred to as the “cognac of tequilas,” and is paired well with a fine cigar.
