Tequila Review: PaQuí Tequila (Silvera)

Posted by Arctic Wolf on May 18, 2010

Tequila Review: PaQuí Tequila (Silvera)

According to the information sent to me,  PaQuí is handcrafted in small batches in the town of Tequila, Mexico, where the master distiller uses a process called Selective Distillation.  This process separates the heart of the distillation resulting in a very pure tequila.  This new  brand is a result of extensive market research which sought to establish the credentials luxury tequila drinkers seek in a fine tequila and to bring such this product to market.

To quote John Chappell, Vice President of  Brand Development,

Conceived nearly three years ago, PaQuí Tequila is the result of extensive research where we learned that the high-end tequila experience is about celebrating and having fun with an authentically Mexican tequila. PaQuí,  is deeply Mexican and captures the sense of adventure

the drinker is seeking. The luxury tequila drinker also cares intensely about quality so we went out and hired the best Master Distiller to create an outstanding tequila. The result is PaQuí Silvera, a distinctive tequila that expresses the essence of blue agave with an inviting, flowery aroma and exquisite taste.”

PaQuí Tequila has recently been brought to market by Tequila Holdings, Inc., who are the distillers distillers and the importers.  It is currently available in the States of California and Texas.

I was contacted several months ago by the firm, Maury Rogoff, PR and Marketting, (I assume they were engaged by Tequila Holdings Ltd.) who sent me press release information regarding PaQuí Tequila, and requested a review of their Silvera.  The sample bottle arrived in my possession about six weeks later, and after several sessions of tasting I can now share the results of my review:

“…Upon pouring the glass I noticed a light sheen on the sides of my vessel which indicated the presence of a light oil.  The Tequila has no colour at all, that is to say,  it has, to my eye at least, perfect clarity.  The aroma from the glass is laid back.  An earthy agave scent is present, but it does not jump from the glass, rather it seeps out slowly….”
