    Hornitos Tequila have announced the launch of their new Hornitos Black Barrel, a 100% blue agave tequila, aged through an innovative process that conveys the classic tasting notes of a whiskey.

In the final ageing process, the liquid is transferred to specially-toasted American Oak barrels for two additional months to further enhance the whiskey-like notes.

    Sceptics amongst your may ask why you want your tequila to taste like whiskey...but it's picked up a few awards, most notably a Double Gold award at the San Francisco Wine & Spirits Competition.

Chamucos Tequila Blanco Especial

Chamucos Tequila Blanco Especial

I get excited about most new bottles of tequila than come to the office, but from the moment this bottle of Chamucos Tequila Blanco Especial arrived I was desperate to get it open and get at that sweet agave juice inside. The quirky design of the cardboard box containing the the bottle reflects just how much thought and time has gone in to packaging alone. Adorned with a hand drawn pop-out devil (or Bogey Man if your translate Chamucos to English) you just know that if as much thought and care has gone in to the contents inside of the bottle...there is no way you could be possibly disappointed.

With its rustic styled bottle and an array of accolades, stretching back to 1998, it's of no surprise that it made the list.

Voodoo Tiki Reposado

Christmas comes but once a year, well in December of last year it came twice for me. I returned home from work one evening to find a parcel from Voodoo Tiki Tequila on my doorstep with a bottle of their reposado in it. I'd been itching to try this for ages as I do love an over the top bottle. C'mon it's got a Tiki idol in it, how can you not want to try it?! After a short battle with the wax seal that blocks the agave juice from escaping, the review was underway.
