Lunazul Blanco, 100% Agave Tequila
I simply love this brand. Lunazul delivers great and complex flavors without challenging the budget. When I go to a bar and see that they are featuring Lunazul Blanco in their margaritas I know that I am in good hands. Lunazul is the clever choice as you can easily spend twice as much to get a Tequila with this quality and pedigree.
Lunazul, blue moon, was founded by Francisco Beckmann, a seventh generation descendent of Jose Antonio de Cuervo. He sold his stake in the family distillery in 1992, but kept his share of the agave fields to pursue his personal goal: to distill the some of the best tequilas in the world. He founded the Tierra de Agaves estate in 2004 and soon after began producing Lunazul tequilas. Since the introduction in 2004 the brand has earned a band of loyal followers as the Tequilas deliver pure and complex agave flavors at a tremendous value.
Brilliant, crystal clear.
The nose is fruity exhibiting tropical and apple notes with a healthy dose of salt and citrus, which is to say – it has the aromatics of fresh agave.
The palate is semi-viscous and refreshing with ripe fruit tones giving way to crisp citrus notes mingling with agave and ripe peach.
Wonderfully balanced with clean flavors and a long, lingering, spicy finish.
How to Serve
I love sipping the Lunazul Blanco straight or lightly chilled. It also makes one hell of a margarita and paloma.
