Tequila at HEINEMANN: a Mexican specialty from the heart of the blue agave plant
Tequila, one of the most famous spirits in the world, has its roots in the Mexican state of Jalisco. This liquor, with a colourful history, has changed repeatedly over the years and now presents itself as an aromatic drink that is often consumed amongst friends. There are clear differences in taste between different manufacturers. Discover authentic Mexican tequila from the exclusive options offered on the HEINEMANN online store.
Patience, passion and dedication are the secrets to creating first-class tequila
Tequila is an indication of origin, which stipulates that the spirit must have been manufactured in a strictly limited area around the same Mexican town. This high-proof spirit always contains the blue agave plant but still retains great versatility. This is a special agave plant that requires up to nine years of care before it is fully grown. Only then will the heart of the plant be ripe for harvesting and tequila production. This work requires patience and skill. The heart of the agave must be steamed for up to 36 hours. It is then crushed in order to extract the agave and it is transformed in a slow distillation process into tequila. Depending on the make, it can be clear or golden in colour. Those that want to buy high-quality tequila for affordable prices will certainly find what they are looking for at HEINEMANN. Here you will experience a superb selection of gourmet tequilas that were matured in authentic oak barrels. This storage process is - unlike that of a whiskey or a cognac - not mandatory. The multi-layered aromas and flavours of premium tequilas speak for themselves. The longer the tequila is stored, the softer and more full-bodied is the result. A good example is the Sierra Milenario Extra Añejo or the Patron Tequila Añejo, which are all available on the HEINEMANN online store. Each tequila brand is filled with aromas of vanilla, raisins and honey with slightly fruity accents. The spirits are well complemented by the authentic design of bulbous corked glass bottles.
