About Tanteo Habanero Tequila

Tanteo Habanero is an unapologetically spicy tequila, infused with real habanero peppers sourced from the Yucatan Peninsula. Tanteo's CEO and master blender Neil Grosscup created this expression for those “spice-head” fans where nothing is hot enough. Habaneros were selected as they have a rich history in Mexico, and are the hottest pepper readily available. Only orange habaneros are used, and their pleasant tropical nose pairs well with many of the popular cocktails. Different cuts of habaneros are macerated in Tanteo’s overproof blanco, and the macerates are artfully blended together to create the perfect combination of heat, habanero’s tropical aromas, and the blanco tequila. To make sure the tequila will shine not only neat or on the rocks, but also in margaritas, Grosscup also spent a lot of time making margaritas with the samples.

About Tanteo Tequila

Tanteo is a line of ultra-premium tequilas crafted to make the perfect spicy and classic margaritas. The only tequila owned and operated by a co-operative of agave farmers, Tanteo is distilled, infused and bottled by hand at a cooperative distillery in the town of Juanacatlan in Jalisco. The opening of the distillery in a former denim factory helped revive the local economy, bringing jobs back to the area, and the distillery employs mostly women, with special emphasis on hiring single mothers and widows. The ingredients are sourced locally: the agave comes from a cooperative community of over 80 agave growers, and the peppers are grown in Mexico. The bottles, labels and corks are also made in Mexico. The production of Tanteo is waste free, as the distillery reuses and composts the byproducts and waste from the process.

Tanteo tequila is made from 100% blue Weber agave. The distillery uses agaves with higher sugar content, grown in the diverse Cienega region of Jalisco. The agaves are cooked in brick ovens and not a diffuser or autoclave, which results in a more flavorful tequila with fewer impurities, but requires more time and attention than the modern methods. The line features a higher proof Blanco, and three pepper infused expressions – spicy Jalapeño, smoky Chipotle and extra spicy Habanero.

About Tequila

Although tequila has developed a bad reputation, there's more to the spirit than just shots on a Saturday night.

This traditional Mexican drink origins in the state of Jalisco when according to a local legend, lightning struck an agave cactus before the Nahua tribe drank its warm nectar. Behold, tequila.

Legally, tequila has to be made of 51% of Blue agave around the Jalisco region in Mexico. There are different types of tequila according to age - from the youngest representatives, blanco, reposado, and añejo, to the oldest extra añejo.

This is an unapologetically spicy tequila with a pleasant tropical nose of mango, passion fruit and pineapple, and a touch of agave sweetness. Intense habanero flavors build mid-palate heat without overshadowing the agave base. The finish is long and peppery.
