THL: What is it?
Peligroso Tequila is produced with 100% Weber Blue agave in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico, and is aged in Tennessee whiskey barrels.
THL: Why should you try it?
The two founders of Peligroso both shared a love of Mexico, surfing, and great tequila. The surfing duo’s adventures to Mexico that involved tequila were always accompanied by nights of fun, excitement and danger. They named their tequila Peligroso, (which means danger in Spanish) as a tribute to both the spirit and the fun that is sure to follow a night of tequila drinking.
THL: Who makes it?
Peligroso tequila distilled at the El Viejito distillery in the town of Atotonilco El Alto in the highlands of Jalisco. El Viejito have recently updated their distillery as demonstration of their commitment to the environment with increased efficiency, and they are in the process of obtaining “clean industry” certification. They also produce Peligroso Tequila Silver and Peligroso Tequila Añejo.
THL: What does it taste like?
Vanilla, caramel, pepper, smoke
THL: How should you drink it?
Though it’s hard to look dangerous while sipping one, the Strawberry Margarita with Peligroso Tequila Reposado is one great cocktail. Looks be damned.
