Peligroso Tequila is a name that says it all. Peligroso means “dangerous” in Spanish, and with 42% alcohol instead of the usual 40% most tequilas offer, this tequila is dangerous indeed. It is made from 100% blue agave, which is grown and harvested in a private estate in the highlands of Jalisco, in Mexico, steamed in real brick ovens and later distilled in copper and stainless pots. The fruit of this careful labour is aged to perfection in white oak barrels.
There are three different types of Peligroso tequila. The Silver uses a crystal clear flint glass that perfectly reflects the purity of the juice. The Reposado is bottled in a more rustic glass, which matches the golden aged nature of the drink. Finally, the Añejo comes in an elegant and mysterious satin black bottle that alludes to the complex layers of the long-aged tequila. Each bottle is numbered by hand to attest to its authenticity.
