In this article, we take you through some of the new products we carry at Flasked and share with you some tequila brands to try in 2024.

Espolon

Espolon is a vibrant and affordable tequila brand known for its quality and authenticity. Produced in the Los Altos region of Jalisco, Mexico, Espolon offers a range of expressions. Each of these showcases the rich flavors of agave and the craftsmanship of traditional distillation methods.

Our recommendations:

Espolon Blanco Tequila

Espolon Blanco is made from 100% Blue Weber Agave, giving it a clean and authentic taste. It's known for its fresh agave scent, floral hints, and a touch of peppery spice. Perfect for cocktails like margaritas, it captures the essence of agave for a delightful drinking experience.

Espolon Reposado Tequila

Unlike its unaged counterpart Blanco, Espolon Reposado is rested for a minimum of two months in American oak barrels. This aging process adds smooth vanilla and oak flavors to the initial sweetness of cooked agave, with a hint of pepper in the finish, creating a delightful balance of flavors.

Espolon Anejo Tequila

Compared to Blanco and Reposado, Espolon Anejo is best enjoyed neat or on the rocks. The complex flavor profile deserves to be savored without the dilution of mixers. As you sip, allow the various notes to unfold and appreciate the depth created by the aging process.

Montelobos

Distilled in Oaxaca, Mexico, this brand embodies the rich heritage of mezcal-making. Montelobos is a mezcal brand renowned for its artisanal production methods and commitment to tradition. Their mezcal showcases the unique flavors of agave espadin, with earthy, smoky notes and a hint of citrus, offering a truly authentic experience.

Our recommendations:

Montelobos Ensamble Mezcal

Montelobos Ensamble Mezcal brings a unique taste experience. It combines smoky flavors with a touch of sweetness and fruitiness from different agave types. You'll also notice a hint of spice at the end.

Pro-tip: For cocktails, use fresh ingredients and top-quality mixers to bring out the best flavors of Montelobos.

Cenote

Cenote

Cenote takes its name from the natural underground water system found in the Yucatan Peninsula. Like all high-quality tequilas, Cenote uses only 100% Blue Weber agave, ensuring an authentic tequila experience.

Pro-Tip: Enjoy any expression with neat or on-the-rocks in a snifter or tulip glass. These glasses allow for aroma appreciation and a more focused tasting experience.

Our recommendations:

Cenote Premium Blanco Tequila

Cenote Premium Blanco Tequila captures the essence of pure agave with its unaged expression. Enjoy its refreshing taste, boasting crisp citrus notes and subtle minerality. Whether in a margarita or sipped neat, it offers a delightful option to cool down on a sunny day.

Cenote Premium Reposado Tequila

Aged for a minimum of 3 months in American oak barrels, this reposado offers a touch of vanilla and caramel alongside the agave notes. Enjoy it neat or on the rocks to savor the subtle oak influence.

Cenote Premium Anejo Tequila

On the nose, you'll encounter a unique smokiness, a characteristic not often found in tequilas. This is balanced by hints of spice, piquing your curiosity for the sip to come.

Corralejo

Corralejo, steeped in a rich history dating back to the 19th century, embraces tradition in its tequila-making process. Utilizing clay ovens and carbon filtering, it refines its spirits, ensuring a smoother taste by eliminating harsh flavors occasionally present in tequila.

Our recommendations:

Corralejo Reposado Tequila

Corralejo Reposado Tequila undergoes aging in American oak barrels for four months, resulting in a smooth and well-balanced profile. It boasts subtle hints of vanilla and oak, complementing the agave's sweetness.

Corralejo Anejo Tequila

This expression offers a harmonious blend of the natural sweetness of blue Weber agave and the nuanced flavors imparted by oak aging. Enjoy its inviting notes of coffee, caramel, and delicate hints of baking spice, creating a smooth and enjoyable sipping experience.

Corralejo Blanco Tequila

Corralejo Blanco Tequila captures the essence of pure blue Weber agave with its unaged expression. Its crisp and vibrant taste profile reveals citrusy notes with a subtle minerality, making it ideal for crafting refreshing cocktails like margaritas or enjoying neatness for a clean and authentic tequila experience.

Sombrero

Sombrero honors a legacy of tequila craftsmanship, upheld through generations and is currently spearheaded by Manuel Garcia. Nestled in Jalisco, the birthplace of genuine 100% Agave tequila, the distillery embodies the essence of tradition and quality, ensuring each bottle reflects our heritage and dedication to excellence.

Our recommendations:

Sombrero Negro Silver

Sombrero Negro Silver is a prime example of genuine tequila-making, ensuring a pure and lively 100% Agave tequila. Its smooth taste boasts refreshing citrus flavors and a touch of peppery spice, making it ideal for enjoying on its own or mixing into your favorite cocktails.

Sombrero Negro Gold

You can rely on this expression to embody the essence of authentic tequila craftsmanship, delivering a smooth and flavorful experience. This 100% Agave tequila boasts a rich and golden hue, offering notes of caramel and vanilla with a hint of oak. Perfect for sipping neat or elevating your favorite cocktails with a touch of sophistication.

Los Cuerudos

Los Cuerudos

Los Cuerudos, meaning "The Leathered Ones," is deeply rooted in the Chagoya family tradition. Jorge Chagoya, a pivotal figure in their mezcal production, has ancestral ties to the revolutionary "Los Cuerudos" fighters. This legacy intertwines with their commitment to crafting exceptional mezcal, honoring both heritage and quality.

Our recommendations:

Los Cuerudos Mezcal Joven

Perfect for newcomers, its "Joven" classification signifies minimal aging, preserving the fresh, vibrant flavors of the agave. Dive into tradition with this unaged or lightly aged expression, ideal for exploring mezcal's rich character.
