In order for a spirit to be called “Tequila” it has to come from one of five specific states in Mexico: Guanajuato, Jalisco, Michoacan, Nayarit, or Tamaulipas. Most Tequilas come from the state of Jalisco. Our tequila tasting kit features Blanco, Reposado, and Añejo types of tequila. Below is a breakdown of these three different types of tequila.
1. Silver, Blanco, or Plata Tequila: Transparent product without additives obtained after distillation without anything added except water for dilution to adjust to the commercially required alcohol by volume.
2. Aged or Reposado Tequila: Tequila subjected to a process of maturation (aging) for at least 2 months in direct contact with wooden barrels of oak or holm Oak.
3. Extra Aged or Añejo Tequila: Tequial subjected to a process of maturation [aging] for at least one year in direct contact with wooden barrels of oak or holm Oak.

The highlights of our tequila tasting experience include:
La tromba is the name given to the intense rainstorms that rejuvenate the rugged tequila producing highlands of central Mexico each summer.
Their master distiller Marco Cedano created the first batch of premium 100% agave Tequila in 1988. Tromba is distiller owned which gives them control over every step of their production process.
Agave from the Los Altos Highlands produces Tequila’s with ripe fruit and floral notes. Tromba is made entirely of this agave.

Dark chocolate and tequila make a great match. The warming, complex nature of most tequila complements the luxurious, creamy texture of good chocolate.
The underlying sweetness and alcohol bite to tequila is offset extremely well by the more bitter and lingering flavor of dark chocolate.
Our organic Dark 70% chocolate from GREEN & BLACK’s is made from fine Trinitario cacao beans, providing complex fruit notes and intense bittersweet chocolate aromas.
GREEN & BLACK’S is a chocolate brand founded on sustainable and ethical cocoa sourcing principles.
A great addition to a tequila birthday gift for those looking to buy tequila samples online.
While you still have the flavours in your mouth after a sip of rum, take a piece of chocolate and let it slowly melt and add to the flavour. Then take another sip of rum and round it off.
Truffles are a bold flavor, and a little goes a long way. The taste of black truffles is a mixture of chocolaty, nutty and earthy. Tequila pairs well with potato chips and the flavours of black truffle, so we have a fantastic snack that combines both!
These special premium potato chips feature authentic black summer truffles.
Be captivated by the intense woodsy aroma with flavors of garlic, wild mushroom and earthy hazelnut undertones that convert this snack into a real treat for the senses.
Ingredients: Potatoes, sunflower oil, salt, dehydrated black summer truffle (T. aestivum Vitt.) and truffle aroma.
From occasions like birthday gifts to valentines day, this is a great gift!
