Tequila Chamucos: Milk & Honey, Soho
The days of shooting Tequila between barrels of lager and splicing them with sambucas are over. Tequila Chamucos have set their raison d’etre to improving the reputation of the Mexican drink from being the late night turbo-charge to obliteration into something of a delicacy. We popped into their promotion evening and discovered that, much like champagne, Tequila can only be so called if it is made from 100% agave and manufactured in the Tequila region of Mexico. The consideration and consumate attention of the brewing process is equal to that of any bottle of wine. Barrels are aged for varying durations for fuller flavour, and if sipped (yes, SIPPED) it can awaken the palete with aromas of butterscotch, caramel, vanilla and chocolate. Unlike wine, Tequila does not improve with age so the bottle will need to be finished, but finished SLOWLY (preferrably in an El Coco cocktail!).
