Milagro Silver Tequila
Milagro // Los Altos, Jalisco, Mexico
Milagro (translated to "miracle") is a tequila which uses only agaves grown on the estate of Juan de la Torre, now a partner in the brand. His agaves were unaffected by the bacteria which caused a shortage in agave and tequila production in the mid '90's. Most tequilas are distilled twice, but Milagro is distilled three times, twice in a pot still and once in a stainless steel column still.
Tequila BlancoDistilled from 100% blue Weber agave, it is typically unaged , clear, and bottled straight after distillation. Sometimes rested in stainless steel up to 60 days and can also be aged in wood for no more than 30 days.
"An intense aroma of cooked celery greets you on the nose. The palate, though initially oily and slick finishes clean and minty fresh. Further tastes bring out some tropical fruits, but it's a gentle background note."
