2014 will be the 40th year of cream based liqueurs, and although there are well over fifty different kinds available world-wide, there are very few tequila based ones. 1921 Tequila Cream is made at Destileria Morales in Arandas, Jalisco. They use 100% Blue Weber agave blanco tequila, giving it a light and slightly fruity flavor. The company was not founded in 1921, as you might expect, but rather in 2002. The name is given in honor of the last year of the Mexican revolution, and if you look on the bottle, you will see a picture of Maria De Los Dolores Eugenia Collado de Jazo, the grandmother of the distilleries president, Juan Francisco Collado. A few mysteries solved.
