Tanteo Tequila is the original 100% agave spicy tequila. Tanteo infuses artisanal blanco tequila with fresh peppers by hand in the hills of Jalisco, Mexico. The result is an award-winning artisanal product that is anything but ordinary. Made from 100% agave and infused with real natural essences (as opposed to macerated which would mean they put the ingredients directly in the tequila and extracted the flavors that way).
We taste tested it recently and found a lovely bouquet with the scents of brine, chilies, and spiciness. Subtle chili smells (fresh pepper smell) and good quality agave. The taste was excellent brimming with quality tequila tastes–sweet savory notes, lime citrus with salt and touches of leather followed by a curtain of jalapeno pepper rolling across your tongue and palate almost immediately and about a minute for it to go away. Sweet then slightly drying finish intermixed with pepper and a lingering tingling/numbness with some smoke/roasted pepper notes.
For a flavored tequila we found it to be outstanding–actual real flavors not a chemical soup added to a indifferent tequila and marketed at spring break. We also found it excellent for adding some heat and savory in cooking, and think it is a great addition for the kitchen /spice collection as something to get creative with. http://www.tanteotequila.com
