DANO’S DANGEROUS TEQUILA-WINS BEST IN CLASS AT SAN FRANCISCO 2020
Hollywood (Spiritsman) 5/4/20/–A new tequila came across our desk the other day and Dano’s Tequila is one you will be hearing about a lot in the future. They recently won the Best in Class Anejo at the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition, They are interesting because they only use agave and volcanic spring water in their handcrafted tequila, along with an infusion of those two ingredients plus pineapples and jalapenos. No flavoring or coloring is used which is kind of unusual anyway, and the blue weber agave has to be at least eight years old. The pinas are then slow steamed for 26 hours in a hornos oven, milled with a giant grinding wheel and then double distilled in copper stills. Home for the brand is the wonderful sounding Steamboat Springs in Colorado, with the product itself crafted in a family owned distillery in Jalisco that dates back to 1840. All drinks produced at the historic facility are hand crafted in small batches. The distiller is actually the second oldest tequila distillery in the world.
The 2020 event in San Francisco which was held at the Hotel Nikko days before the lockdown took place also gave awards to the three other brands in the portfolio. The Reposado won Gold, and the Blanco and the Pineapple and Jalapeno infusion won Bronze. The Anejo Tequila is strictly for sipping only and with a rich amber color derived from up to eighteen months of aging in virgin white oak barrels.
Tastes of vanilla, caramel, coconut and oak must have entranced the judges The Reposado is aged for nine months and is more light amber in color. The taste of almond and vanilla makes this a drink you can either sip or use in mixed drinks.
The Blanco Tequila is crystal clear and is perfect for mixed drinks while the Pineapple & Jalapeno is made with fresh fruits. and the Blanco. And was the first tequila from the company to garner awards from spirits competitions.
