I first encountered Corralejo Tequila Blanco at the May 5 (Cinco de Mayo) Tequila Tasting at Aligra Wine and Spirits in Edmonton last spring. I enjoyed my experience with the spirit at the tasting, and I decided I should review this tequila here on my website. Corralejo Blanco is produced in the Mexican State of Guanajuato. The distillery uses traditional methods of fermentation and distillation with clay ovens used to cook the agave and copper pot stills for the distillation.
Here is an excerpt from my review:
“…The nose of the glass carries a mixture of honey and pepper with light herbaceous tones of agave. As I let the glass sit and return after a few minutes I notice that the honeyed tones have deepened into an aroma very similar to cane syrup. The peppery notes now carry a little citrus, and the agave remains light and enjoyable. …”

As well I have included a nice cocktail which I call The Quick Red Fox.
Please enjoy the review and my cocktail!
