ArteNOM Tequila 1549 Blanco
Tequila and mezcal are produced in different states of Mexico (though there is overlap). Tequila can only be made, by law, with one variety of agave: the Blue Agave.
Labeled as "blanco organico", the Arte Nom 1549 comes from Destiladora Refugio located in El Arenal (known as the entrance way to the blue agave region of Jalisco), just west of Guadalajara. One of the few distilleries using certified organic agave, Refugio's blanco spirit is one of the cleanest in the business. The nose is an explosive bouquet of pepper, citrus, salt, and sweet agave, with each flavor making itself completely known in equal amounts. The palate is medium-bodied and clean on the entry, before bursting with more pepper and citrus and ultimately finishing with flavors of roasted agave, tangy fruits, and baking spices.
