Hernando Cortés captured the Aztec capital of Tenochititlan, Mexico City was established in its place. As illustrated on the 19th century inspired label, Guadalupe and Rosarita reveled in the rich culture of this new metropolis, yet a pair of devilishly toothy grins hinted at their true intentions. Driven by a passion for all things Aztec civilization, the nefarious couple schemed to infuse elements of Aztec culture into every cocktail bar in the world.
Rich, golden hue. Spicy nose with a hint of caramel fudge before a bold, round palate, medium to full bodied with rich roasted agave character, sweet tropical fruit, vanilla and brown spices followed by a long, satisfyingly spicy finish. Espolon favour craftsmanship over mass production. To extract more rich, intense flavors, the piñas are cooked for up to twenty hours, each batch is treated to a slow, extended distillation for optimal extraction of toasted Agave character rich, caramel flavour.
