US gets ‘first’ infused añejo TequilaBy Annie Hayes
Soltado Tequila Serrano and Cinnamon Añejo has become the “first” infused añejo Tequila to launch in the US market.
Currently held as the “only” Añejo infusion on the market, the brand plans to position itself as the leader in the infused Añejo Tequila category by making the Tequila available in multiple US states through Park Street Imports.
Described as “spicy, yet incredibly smooth”, Soltado Tequila Serrano and Cinnamon Añejo is made in Juanacatlán, a small town in the midlands of Jalisco, Mexico.
The expression is crafted by fermenting Tequila with Chilean wine yeast, ageing the liquid for aged 28 months in American white oak, and then macerating it with locally-sourced Mexican green Serrano peppers and cinnamon.
It is said to “mix well in simple cocktails”, and is also suggested as a substitute for whiskey, Scotch, or Bourbon in craft cocktails, as well as “tropical and dessert-focused” drinks.
