Analysis

Vespertino is a new star in the cream Liqueur category. The Silver Tequila base is the ideal canvas for the alluring and complex flavors of fresh cream, brown sugar, cinnamon, cocoa, and vanilla. The name Vespertino means evening in Spanish and the flavors echoes that meaning with its suggestion of rich desserts offered south of the border. Vespertino launched in February 2017 and has rapidly become available in over a dozen states with many more coming soon.

How to Enjoy

Serve chilled after dinner. Vespertino needs nothing but a glass but it does work beautifully in a wide range of cocktails ranging from iced to hot.
