This week’s Weekend Sipper is: Siete Leguas Blanco – “The Bellwether Blanco”

It is time to celebrate tradition, consistency, honesty, and deliciousness. That’s why we’ve selected Siete Leguas Blanco as our Weekend Sipper. Let’s break down the reasons why we love this tequila so much:

Tradition: Using old-world methods requires a lot of respect for the final product. That’s why Siete Leguas cooks their agaves in brick ovens, extracts sugars from the agaves using both a tahona and a roller mill, and distills in small copper pot stills. This is a big win for anyone who wants to experience what authentic tequila is meant to taste like.

Consistency: We’ve been drinking Siete Leguas products for years, and we have never been disappointed. It is always a pleasant experience.

Honesty: Siete Leguas doesn’t play games with their product. No cheap diffuser-made product is mixed in, and there are no additives to be found. Just a clean, bright, honest product. (Thank you!)

Deliciousness: Siete Leguas Blanco is bursting with aromas and flavors of cooked agave, black pepper, and earth. It has a profile that many people find to be quite vegetal, with hints of citrus and minerals. What’s not to love about that?

This is one of those tequilas that deserves to be consumed “neat.” Skip the salt and lime, sip it slow bask in all it has to offer. But this weekend, we’ve decided to spice things up by pairing it with our favorite sangrita recipe.

Luckily, Siete Leguas products are fairly easy to find in the USA. If you can’t find it in a local store, you can get it online at Old Town Tequila for $40. That price is a bargain for what you’re getting.
