Olmeca Altos Tequila

Olmeca-Altos-TequilaPernod Ricard’s Olmeca Altos is probably one of the most famous spirits brands co-created by leading mixologists. Geared specifically towards bartenders, Olmeca Altos is an extension of the Olmeca Tequila brand and was first developed by Olmeca master distiller Jesús Hernández and UK bartenders Dre Masso and the late, great Henry Besant, who passed away in 2013. Pernod Ricard recently completed its Olmeca Altos range with the launch of an 18-month-old oak-aged Añejo variant, continuing its tradition by working with US bartender Charles Joly and UK Olmeca Altos brand ambassador Matthias Lataille.

    No 86 Co.? I’d have thought they were one of the highest profile bartender-created brands.
