Piramide Is Here! El Autentico
A while back I posted an article on this blog asking for"real" tequila. There's a glut of tasty tequila on the market, but no one knows anything about it. Where did it come from? How was it made? Heck, who even made it? That info is irrelevant to most people, but tequila is one of the last few spirits we stock where the people selling it have nothing to do with the people making it and I want to change that. That's when Karolina from Piramide called me up and was so happy that I could speak some Spanish because she had to tell me about her family's new tequila. Made from 100% certified organic agave plants, these guys grow it, harvest it, distill it, import it, distribute it, and promote it. They can tell you about the soil in Jalisco where it is grown and about the pure fermentation process that results in the virbrant flavor. The bottle is simple and to the point because they're all about the spirit inside. The blanco is zesty, full of citrus, cinnamon, and pepper. The finish is clean and the texture is supple, remarkable tequila with no frills. The reposado straddles the line between spicy and smooth with fantastic depth of flavor. Cinnamon, cloves, and baking spices galore without ever losing its gusto. I love this stuff and the price is incredible, but I also love to support people who are passionate about making tequila. Thank heaven we've found some.
