Sauza Silver Tequila
Silver / Blanco Tequila /40% ABV / Mexico
- Silver / Blanco Tequila
According to legend, when the Spanish conquistadors ran out of the brandy they brought from Europe, they began to distill a local agave drink, which became North America’s first indigenous distilled spirit. In 1873, this golden beverage was dubbed “tequila” by Don Cenobio Sauza, who founded La Perseverancia Distillery in Tequila, Mexico. He became the first to export tequila to the rest of the world, and today, Sauza offers a full line of tequila. Sauza® Silver, one of the pioneer spirits from the brand, is double distilled in copper pot stills at low proof to retain the full agave flavor. The aroma offers fresh green apple notes followed by jasmine and hints of spice with a fresh agave taste on the palate. It finishes with a moderate bite of bitter citrus. Ideal for margaritas.View all products by SauzaCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING
Sauza Silver Tequila is as true as tequila gets. First of all, it was originally made in 1873 in the town of Tequila by Don Cenobio Sauza, the first person to call agave spirit "tequila." Built from 100 percent agave, distilled twice and then rested in stainless steel, you'll taste nothing but agave and love.
Check the labels. Not every tequila out there is 100 percent agave. Some have neutral spirits added to a 51 percent agave spirit. Some "gold" tequilas get their color from brown sugar instead of a barrel.
On the nose, you'll whiff blossoming grass with hints of peach and grapefruit plus tropical notes of pineapple and banana. The taste is crisp with citrus and a tiny bit of sweetness. The finish is light and floral.
Sauza Silver Tequila makes a great light partner to the Añejo on your home bar. Sip it on the rocks or with club soda to explode your friends' preconceived notions. It's also very friendly as a mixer, but be gentle because it's not as bold as its oak-aged cousins. Try it in a simple margarita. Muddle two wedges of lime with one wedge of orange. Add a shot of Sauza Silver with 3/4 ounce of orange liqueur. Shake and strain into a half-salted martini glass.
