About this deal

The name comes from Mexican folklore, a story of the origins of tequila and the bolt of lightning that started it all. When a local campesino saw the burning glow in the distance, he followed it until he discovered the cooked agave and Tequila was born. It takes eights years to grow our blue agave and for mother nature to do all her flavouring in the ground.

Rested in ex-whisky casks for 7 months, it has a golden caramel colour and a rich, nutty complexity. This is the Reposado expression from Tequila El Rayo, which distils 100% Blue Weber agave in 105 year old copper stills and matured for seven months in casks that previously held whiskey before being bottled.Fill your highball glass with lots of ice, pour over a healthy glug of your tequila of choice (40ml is El Rayo’s sweet spot), top with premium tonic, and garnish with a nice big wedge of grapefruit. Disappointing, because I bought this expecting it to be "Exceptionally smooth and gentle", which is a description far better suited for Cazadores Blanco, my current benchmark for smooth tequilas. The roasted agave really comes through nicely in this tequila, with lighter grassy notes and as others have said a savory kick that's hard to put your finger on. The myth describes how a local campesino witnessed this moment and followed the burning glow in the distance. Bottled on site in Jalisco and made of 100% agave, Arette Blanco is an exceptional silver tequila full of fresh flavours, spicy hints and a cheeky character in which you can pick out each single flavour note.

The brand’s name "El Rayo" (lightning), alludes to the famous Mexican folk tale of lightning striking the blue agave. This particular expression is not made with lightning, but with 105 year old copper stills, which distil the Blue Weber agave twice before its bottled up straight from the still. Plata naturally packs a range of vibrant, fresh and herbal notes which pair perfectly with bittersweet taste of tonic water. Although less complex in flavours than it’s plata, the reposado is beautifully smooth and perfect to sip on.
