Jose Cuervo Platino Tequila

Joseplatino Jose Cuervo Platino TequilaCommon perception points to aged darker spirits as being of a better quality than their fairer brethren, and it’s no different in Tequila. However, Jose Cuervo Platino bucks the trend by creating a truly special unaged ‘silver’ tequila. Made from 100% 10-12 year old agave, Platino is handcrafted using a unique process reserved for Jose Cuervo’s best spirits called ‘Esencia de Agave’, during which the steam from the agave cooking process is recaptured and, with it, the flavour essences of the plant. With its rich herbaceous agave notes, slight sweetness and dry finish, Platino is super-smooth yet maintains enough character to stands up against the finest whiskies and cognacs. Each bottle of Jose Cuervo Platino Tequila is individually numbered, wax-sealed and presented in a luxury box and is available from drink specialists for around £55.00. www.cuervointernational.com
