Award-winning Suerte Tequila Now Available at Local NYC RetailersMay 27, 2013 By: Nightclub & Bar
Suerte Tequila announced that the brand’s debut trio of small-batch, single estate, double distilled tequilas is now available in the New York Metro area. Suerte is now available at four Manhattan Dos Caminos locations, Il Buco, and online at DrinkUpNY.com.
Suerte (Spanish meaning “luck”) Blanco, Reposado, and Añejo tequilas begin in the highlands of rural Atotonilco El Alto, Jalisco, Mexico. After harvesting, Master Distiller Pedro Hernandez Barba uses a traditional, hand-carved stone wheel, called a tahona, to crush 100% pure Blue Weber Agave. Barba is one of a handful of Mexican distillers who insist on using the tahona, which lends a unique flavor to the resulting product that cannot be achieved by using more modern methods such as a steel shredder. The piñas of the agave are then slow-cooked in a brick oven, and the juice is gradually fermented, and distilled.
“Our love for tequila is what drove us to start Suerte in the first place,” said Spiewak. “But Suerte is also about three guys from completely different backgrounds all looking for a career change found each other and created something magical to share with the world. We want to share the adventures we’ve had together into the world of tequila with anyone who’s willing to come along with us. We’re thrilled to be sharing our creation with New York.”
Suerte Blanco is handcrafted from 100% Blue Weber Agave and rested for a minimum of two months in stainless steel tanks prior to bottling. An incredibly smooth finish and pleasant herbal, citrus, and sweet notes make it perfect for sipping straight, on the rocks, or enjoying in a refreshing cocktail. 750ml, 40% Alc. by Volume (80 proof)
Suerte Reposado rests in white oak bourbon barrels from seven to 11 months. This magnificent spirit highlights the master distiller’s craft by exhibiting a perfect balance of resting time, oak, and pure Agave. With a robust bouquet of aromas, subtle plum, butterscotch, and oak notes, Suerte Reposado is nothing short of liquid bliss. Enjoy it neat, on the rocks, or in an authentic margarita. 750ml, 40% Alc. by Volume (80 proof)
Suerte Añejo rests in White Oak bourbon barrels for 24 months, twice as long as the industry standard. A complex and full-bodied flavor is sure to please all palates. A moderate oak presence, with hints of berry, chocolate, and mint complement the underlying essence of the Agave. We recommend you serve Suerte Añejo in a wine glass and enjoy in the company of good friends. 750ml, 40% Alc. by Volume (80 proof)
