SUMMER'S HOTTEST CRAZE IS HERE!
Move over Vodka. There’s been a craze making waves over the past few years and its showing no signs of slowing down. and the funniest thing is... This craze is all about slowing down.
(What??!!?) It’s the Premium/ Luxury Tequila trend - a whole Say goodbye to lick, shoot and suck and say ‘Salud’ to savor, sip and celebrate! The fast pace of knocked-back tequila shots with a wink and a wedge are now replaced with the suave, sultry ‘swirl, sniff n’ sip’ sophistication of aspiring ‘catadores’ (tequila connoisseurs).
This is Tequila‘s red carpet moment with star studded endorsements from George Clooney, Dwayne Johnson and Kendall Jenner and ultra-sophisticated methods and classifications that elevate the sip from the gulp.
Up until 1995 Tequila was just Patron or Cuervo or that crazy one with the worm we all heard about (or bragged about after spring break at Senor Frogs). And then BAM! It exploded 405% by 2020. Nowadays, Don Julio is at the top of the Tequila chain, with another 3,306 different Tequilas out there to whet your lips.
Overwhelming? Yeah, that’s a lot to swallow, we know. (first hand!) But leave it Niko here at OCEANOS to take on the challenge and sift thru all the wanna be’s to determine what exactly differentiates a remarkable tequila. Dozens (dare we says hundreds?!) of tequila taste tests later and he’s nailed it. ...
