31: Santo Puro Mezquila

The trend for celebrity-backed spirits continued with the launch of Tequila-mezcal hybrid Santo Puro Mezquila in February last year.

Former Van Halen vocalist Sammy Hagar and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine partnered to launch Santo Puro Mezquila, which is described as an agave blend, combining 100% Blue Variety Tequilana Weber agave and 100% Espadin agave, of the Angustifolia variety.

The resulting liquid is said to have an “intense agave aroma” that reveals an “earthy, light smokiness with a hint of herbs”. On the palate, Santo is “mellow”; the “intricate agave flavor and herbal complexity layered with gentle smoke, slight floral fruitiness and low saltiness”.
