Agave Loco Pepper Cured Tequila is ade with 100% Agave, Reposado, Tequila from Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico. (Blanco Tequila was too green for the pepper blend and Anejo was a bit too woody and over-powered the pepper flavor. Reposado allowed for the perfect combinations for balance of Tequila and pepper flavours.)
80 proof was a bit too hot and spirit overpowered the pepper flavour. 60 proof did not allow enough of the pepper oils to be absorbed into the spirit. Agave Loco found 71.1 proof to be the perfect proof to allow the maximum pepper oils to be absorbed while the tequila did not overpower the pepper flavours.
The oils of 6 varieties of pepper are infused into the Tequila including Jalapeno and Serrano peppers. A proprietary blend of peppers chosen for sweetness, flavour, and heat.
