Even though Tres Agaves tequila is a relatively new product on the market, it is crafted at one of the oldest distilleries in Jalisco, Mexico; Destiladora Azteca de Jalisco. As well, they have won some outstanding industry awards from the likes of Paul Pacult’s Ultimate Beverage Challenge and Ultimate Cocktail Challenge.
Their margarita mixer is a blend of organic lime juice, organic agave nectar grown in Jalisco and filtered water. Simple, yet the only organic version on the market. Trend setting.
So, with these two products in hand, how does their brand name Margarita stand up? Read on….
Tres Agaves Silver (80 proof)
Nose: Fresh, lively and strong agave body.
Taste: Exceptionally smooth, round and creamy, yet at the same time full of bright, vegetal pepperiness. The whole flavor moves from one end of the spectrum to the other. The mouthfeel is beautiful and the agave is done to perfection. Quite lovely and certainly a standout in the blanco category.
Finish: Medium long with fresh flavor of pressed agave aged to the peak of the character imparted by the wood.
Overall: Summer in a glass. This is the kind of tequila you want to take home and introduce to your mother.
GSN Rating: A+
Tres Agaves Organic Margarita Mix (non-alcoholic)
Overall: Used as specified on the bottle’s label, the Margarita with Tres Agaves Silver tasted fine, but without the essential oils found in fresh-squeezed limes, it has a somewhat one dimensional taste. I was also surprised at the serving suggestions which calls for the drink to be served on the rocks in a old-fashioned glass. I appreciated the overall flavor, and the organic ingredients, but would always make it fresh if at all possible. Barring that, this is one of the best mixes I’ve tasted.
