Before the pandemic, visiting friends at home was an everyday occurrence.
Having the opportunity to raid their drink’s cabinets for something interesting or unusual was always a treat.
A handsome, suave, almost dashing type of character emblazoned on a Tequila bottle caught my attention.
Who is this & how does the tequila taste?
Pedro Infante was an iconic figure in the Mexican heyday of cinema – 1940’s to 50’s.
A highly popular singing career also ran concurrently before a plane crash tragically cut short his life.
What better way to celebrate his legacy to Mexican culture than having a range of Tequilas named after him?
So a glass was poured.
Now don’t let the pale straw colour put you off – this was definitely tequila.
A soft, earthy agave note greeted me for starters.
A mild & mellow palate from the oak ageing gave a gentle easy going sipping experience.
No rough edges here.
Rather like the dapper gentleman on the label!
