Opened in 1952 by legendary master distiller Don Ignacio González Vargas, Casa Siete Leguas has become one of the most prestigious distilleries in Mexico. It first garnered international prestige when it produced the original tequila used to launch the now famous Pátron brand in the late '80s. The famed producer is now better known—and rightfully so—as the creator of critically acclaimed Siete Leguas 100% Agave Tequilas.
The altogether sensational Siete Leguas Blanco 100% Agave Tequila is bottled fresh from the still. If you liked the original Pátron Blanco, you'll adore this brilliantly aromatic and flavorful silver tequila. It has ideal clarity, a velvety, medium-weight body and a generous nose brimming with spice, pepper, citrus and the unmistakable aroma of wet pavement. The bouquet alone is well worth the purchase price. It has a gentle entry that bathes the palate with herbal, spice and fruit flavors. The finish is long and sublime. A more elegant blanco tequila you will not find.
Produced in Jalisco at the Sauza distillery, La Perseverancia, the super-premium Tres Generaciones Plata owes much of its vibrancy and extraordinary character to how it's made. To create the lightest, most brilliant spirit possible, Sauza's maestro tequilero passes the silver tequila through a traditional pot still for a third distillation, after which it is bottled within 24 hours. Its inherent attributes are readily apparent and genuinely something special.
Tres Generaciones Plata is a marvelous entree into the pleasures of silver tequila. It has brilliant clarity, a sleek, feather-weight body and a pronounced bouquet of citrus and spice aromas. The tequila glides over the palate without a trace of heat or harshness and then slowly builds in intensity, revealing layers of spicy, peppery flavor. The finish is lingering and flavorful.
Tres Generaciones Plata is best appreciated in a snifter. However, that shouldn't imply the tequila isn't ready for some fun. It enjoys scores of applications behind the bar and is a fabulous choice for Margaritas served straight up in elegant cocktail glasses.
Hudson Baby Bourbon is the first bourbon whiskey to be distilled in New York. Named “Best Artisan Distiller of 2010” by the American Distilling Institute, this single grain bourbon is made from 100% New York corn and aged in special small American Oak barrels. This unique aging process produces a mildly sweet, smooth spirit with hints of vanilla and caramel. The BABY is Tuthilltown’s first whiskey and the first legal pot-distilled whiskey made in New York since prohibition. Hudson Baby Bourbon is a perfect introduction to aged whiskey spirits. It is mild and friendly, bright to the tongue and warming all the way down with notes of marzipan and roasted corn. Each bottle is hand waxed and numbered. It is a true American classic. We recommend trying the BABY in one of Tuthilltown Spirits signature cocktails.
The Basil and Bourbon
The ultra-premium brand is a small batch whiskey from Tuthilltown Spirit, a farm distillery in Gardiner, New York, in the heart of the Hudson Valley. The first legal pot-distilled rye whiskey to be distilled in the Hudson Valley in over 70 years, Hudson Manhattan Rye is distilled in a traditional copper pot still from whole grain rye and pure spring water. The whiskey is then matured in new charred oak barrels for less than four years and bottled unfiltered. It is hand-filled, capped, waxed and numbered.
Hudson Manhattan Rye is a 92 proof work of art. The handcrafted whiskey has a deep amber hue, a satiny lightweight body and a wafting bouquet laced with the aromas of spice, toffee, dried fruit and vanilla. The entry is pleasantly spicy and quickly fills the mouth with honey, cherries and the flavor of freshly baked rye bread. The long, spicy finish has a hint of smoke.
