Tapatio Blanco 110 55% 50cl
The higher strength (55%!) intensifies the flavours of this fine blanco - it delivers a powerful hit of white pepper, and the heat of pepper comes through in the finish.
The Camarena family's original distillery was destroyed during the Mexican revolution. Don Felipe Camarena founded La Altena in 1937. The business is now run by his grandchildren.
La Altena uses the traditional production methods, grinding the agave with a stone wheel called a tahona and foot-treading the pulp prior to fermentation and distillation.
