I have had my share of tequila over the years and I was in search of a really nice, not overly priced organic tequila that doesn’t give you that nasty hangover. A high school friend told me about Tres Agaves and from first sip, I was hooked and found my go to tequila brand. As Tres Agaves motto states ‘Strive for Simpler. A simple organic tequila that isn’t going to set you back.
Tres Agaves tequila is 100% de Agave, USDA Certified Organic made in Amatitán, Tequila Valley, Mexico, the historic birthplace of Tequila. They not only make tequila but a line of mixers such as agave nectar, lime and strawberry margarita mix and even a Bloody Mary mix.
Tres Agaves Tequilas:
- Blanco: Vibrant and sweet agave aromas dominate with supporting notes of citrus pear and hints of wild mint. With a big agave nose, punchy agave on the palate, then a finish that soothes that beast with a touch of sweet vanilla and lemon.
- Reposado: Aged for 6-9 months in American oak bourbon barrels, imparting a flavor of baked tropical fruits and hints of lime juice. The big agave notes remain surprisingly prominent, punctuated with some black pepper, lemongrass, and wood.
- Anejo: Aged for ~18 months in repurposed Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey barrels. Smooth multi-layered flavors characterized by smoky sweet caramel and butterscotch, floral tones and hints of rosemary and spice.
