Analysis

Two American friends love Tequila and dream of starting their own brand... (stop me if you've heard this before). While the story is far from unique the Tequila is unique and delicious. The Tequila is made at Tequilera Simbolo in the Highlands of Jalisco. Master Distiller Pedro Hernandez Barba crafts his Tequila from traditional methods using brick ovens for the cooking and a tahona (large stone wheel) to crush the agave that is then double distilled. The resulting blanco is rich and complex but ultimately clean and perfectly balanced.

How to Enjoy

Tequila lovers know that quality blancos like Suerte are made for sipping. That's my preferred method but this does make a fine margarita and paloma.
