t1 Tequila Blanco Selecto
Los Altos, Jalisco, Mexico
t1 is a tequila brand created by Master Distiller Germán González, formerly with his family’s brand, Chinaco. In contrast to the t1 Ultra Fino Tequila, the Selecto Blanco uses even more-mature agaves and a broader distillation cut that is then balanced by a higher proof.
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.
"On the nose, you’ll find earthy notes paired with stewed agave and green peppercorn, possibly some aromatic geranium leaf. On the palate, its earthier agave character may lack the creaminess of the Ultra Fino, but it more than holds its own with the help of the higher proof--which is discernible only as a foundation; there is no excess heat, just a deeper spice. Food pairing suggestion? Think duck with mole sauce."
