International Wine & Spirit Competition 2013
Tequila Sauza Tres Generaciones Plata
Tequila is a remarkable drink which can express the nuances of its raw material arguably better than any other spirit on the planet. The key to its unique flavour is the spikily distinctive blue agave plant, which gives Tequila its trademark flavour combination of fruit, pepper and spice. The key to the combination of the characteristic flavor of good Tequila lies in the blue agave plant grown mainly in the Mexican province of Jalisco, but also in parts of Guanajuato, Michoacán and Nayarit, as well as the coastal province of Tamaulipas. It takes a decade or more to mature and is a reflection of soil and climate, as the grapes used to make wine or brandy - the agave from lowlands appear richer in flavor, from the highlands of Jalisco come Tequilas more fragrant, with elegant and spicy tones.
