Stocking the best 100% agave tequilas is not easy in Australia but we are thrilled to present Pasote Blanco, the brainchild of the legendary Felipe Camarena. Felipe has long been regarded as the mad scientist of sustainable tequila and wow he has excelled himself. Everything at his El Pandillo distillery serves an earth friendly purpose with the results being near perfect tequila every time.
The stand out feature of his Los Altos based distillery is its ability to capture and use rain water. Pasote tequila uses 40% rainwater and 60% spring water. The effect on taste is evident and contributes significantly to the uniqueness and success of this range. The agaves are also sourced from one of Felipes fields in the highlands of Jesus Maria.
The Camarena family are renown for their amazing bottles of tequila which include some of the best brands in the world like G4, Ocho, Tapatio and El Tesoro.
TASTE: Utterly clean and clear, with an exquisitely soft mouthfeel, the first impression of this beautifully balanced agave tequila is that you’re drinking liquid light. Crisp, zesty citrus dominates the foreground, unfolding mid-palate to pure succulent blue agave. A surprisingly long finish that’s decidedly clean. The distinctive agave taste deliciously lingers on, flecked with hints of white pepper.
ENJOY: Serve with an assortment of fresh seasonal fruits. Another exceptional pairing for this silky Blanco would be sea bass, shell fish or oysters.
