Espolon Blanco Tequila is a type of tequila that is made from 100% blue Weber agave grown in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. It is produced using traditional methods, including slow cooking the agave in traditional brick ovens and then crushing them with a stone wheel called a tahona.
After fermentation and distillation, the tequila is aged for up to two months in stainless steel tanks before bottling. This aging process gives the tequila its smooth and clean taste, with subtle notes of citrus and a hint of sweetness.
Espolon Blanco Tequila is known for its quality and affordability, and it has won numerous awards for its taste and packaging design. It can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or in a variety of cocktails.
Espolon Blanco Tequila was first introduced to the market in 1998 by a family-owned tequila distillery called Destiladora San Nicolas in Jalisco, Mexico. The distillery has a long history of producing high-quality tequila, and it was founded in 1937.
The inspiration behind Espolon Tequila comes from Mexican folk art, particularly the iconic rooster or “gallo” that symbolizes strength, courage, and national pride. The brand’s name “Espolon” means “spur” in Spanish, which also ties into the rooster theme.
The brand quickly gained popularity in the United States due to its high quality, unique packaging design, and affordable price point. In 2009, Campari Group, an Italian spirits company, acquired Espolon Tequila and has continued to expand the brand’s reach globally.
Today, Espolon Blanco Tequila is still produced using traditional methods and is made from 100% blue Weber agave. It has won numerous awards for its taste and packaging design, and it is enjoyed by tequila enthusiasts around the world.
Espolon Blanco Tequila has an ABV (alcohol by volume) of 40%.
