Tasting Notes

Made at the historic, "El Llano," distillery in the cradle of the Tequila producing region, Arette is one of the few brands still made in the town of Tequila itself, just outside of the regional capital of Guadalajara. Produced by the Orendain brothers, themselves descendants of one of the country's most acclaimed and long lived tequila families the Arette tequilas are known for their exceptional quality and nearly unbeatable value. The spirit is impeccable with a polish that typically eludes this price point with notes that include lime zest, banana peel, white pepper, dried oregano, avocado leaf and minerals. This is top shelf stuff at bargain pricing. Deserves a spot on every bar.

Staff Pick Notes

Here’s what I use to make a margarita: 2oz of Tequila, 1 oz of freshly squeezed lime juice and 0.75 oz of simple syrup. Salt and lime for garnish. Each ingredient plays a major role in the classic cocktail, so you have to take care when selecting your agave. My go-to tequila is Arette Blanco. Why? Because, this particular blanco is fresh and citrusy with a hint of spice. If you like your margarita on the spicier side, I recommend dropping a sliced serrano chilli in, leaving it overnight, and straining it the next day. This will give you a very well-balanced spice in every cocktail you make.
