Tequila Tasting Kit

CAD $60.00

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.

GREEN & BLACK’s Organic Dark Chocolate For Tequila Sampler Gift Set

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.

How To Enjoy

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.
