Cortica Blanco Tequila
  • Cortica Blanco Tequila


      Casa Tequilera de Arandas, S.A. de C.V. (NOM-1499), Arandas, Jalisco

      40% ABV


      Cortica started as a family run production from a long line of agave growers, having worked with Siete Leguas before the sell-off to Patron and Don Julio.  And it probably would have never made it north if not for a chance meeting with the head distiller of Lost Republic, the California whiskey maker, while hanging out down in Jalisco.


      The profile is that of a more 90's feel, with unctuous, oily flavors instead of light and bright.  Additive-free but there is a weightiness that isn't as common in contemporary tequilas.  I really appreciate the line this tequila rides between a throwback style and mindfulness like small, handmade production and being additive-free.

      Tasting notes: lemon, sweet minerality, fig leaf, brine, amaretto
