"Named “World’s Best Tequila” by Forbes and the Ultimate Spirits Challenge, Ocho Blanco is a favourite of tequila aficionados and bartenders across the world. Cooked agave, honey sweetness, white pepper, crisp minerality, and lively citrus notes."
"Vida is the flagship product from Del Maguey, designed for easy sipping and mixing. Expect a big hit of barbecue smoke, dried meat, citrus and bold fruit notes on the palate. A delectable, versatile, and thoroughly enjoyable tipple."
"An excellent example of Oaxacan 100-espadín mezcal, brand founder Iván Saldaña has a PhD in agave, so he knows his stuff. Montelobos has a strong emphasis on sustainability in their production and is a must-have for your home mezcal collection."
"Fortaleza is a favourite of tequila aficionados the world over. This tequila is produced in a small batch manner/fashion, right down the the handblown bottles. A great example of 100% tahona-milled tequila."
"Sherry cask aging is not common in the tequila world. Patrón Añejo Sherry Cask shows that this aging technique, most likely borrowed from Scotch whisky, can be applied to tequila with great result. Good segue into the tequila category for sherried..."
"An innovative release within the mezcal category, the dry coffee notes plays beautifully off of the mezcal’s subtle smoke flavour. Works equally well sipped neat or as the base in cocktail – try it in a Mezcal & Tonic (sounds unusual but trust me,..."

"Although purists will assert that mezcal should not be oak-aged, I think Ilegal is a great example of a favourable outcome of aging mezcal. Enjoy it neat, or use it as a base in aromatic cocktail like the Sweet Manhattan or Old Fashioned. "
"Tequila Ocho aims to retain as much agave flavour as possible in their aged expressions. Note the light colour in Ocho’s aged expressions: this is natural colour from the barrel – Ocho is one of the few 100% additive-free tequilas in the market."
"One of my all-time favourite mezcals, expect a big hit of fruit accompanied by green vegetal notes (think grilled green peppers) and subtle smoke. All the flavours are well integrated and balanced in this superb ensamble mezcal."
"Bruxo X does everything it’s designed to do: easy to sip, easy to mix, full flavoured without being overly challenging/complex. Great value for money too. Recommended for people just beginning to discover mezcal."
"Don Julio is one of the most iconic tequila brands in the world today, and their 1942 bottling is especially unique. Expect dark chocolate, caramel, vanilla, tobacco leaf, green tea, and a soft, smooth and silky mouthfeel/texture."
"As an all-rounder, QuiQuiRiQui probably offers the best value for money in the UK. This mezcal has everything going for it: fruitiness, sweet cooked agave, smoke, vegetal notes and citrus. At 45% ABV the alcohol is able to carry lots of flavour."
