We are holding a very special tequila tasting on Tuesday September 24th to mark the Canadian launch of the 1800 Coleccion 2010 Extra Anejo Ortus tequila. We will sample through the 1800 range, including the 1800 Silver, 1800 Reposado, 1800 Anejo and the 1800 Coconut Liqueur. We will be bolstering the lineup with the Cuervo Reserva de la FamiliaÃ‚Â and Maestro Dobel Diamond a filtered Extra Anejo tequila.
The highlight of the tasting will of course be the 1800 Collecion 2010 Extra Anejo. This limited edition tequila was created and bottled a the historic site of “Hacienda Los Camichines” in Jalisco. Only 400 bottles of this tequila are crafted each year. Aged for a minimum of 10 years in French oak barrels the final product is carefully blended for depth, complexity and subtlety.
Every year a Mexican artist is selected to craft the decanter. The 2010 edition has been designed by Hector Velazquez, a visual artist born in Mxxico City in 1965. The bottling is named “Ortus”, meaning origins.
The price to attend this tasting is a very reasonable $75 +GST!
