When it comes to luxury tequila, nothing I've tasted comes close to the Corzo tequila line. One of two tequila lines owned by Bacardi, I had the opportunity of sampling the three Corzo blends at the Cazadores distillery plant in Arandas. If tequila represents the revolutionary spirit of Mexico, Corzo evolves this history into the modern age.
Fabien Baron, the French designer whose work includes some of the most iconic perfume bottles of our time, was hired to design a bottle for this new brand. Inspired by the greatest of modern Mexican architects, Luis Barragán, Baron created a singular bottle fashioned in a strong, tall rectangular with an angular spout, that perfectly reflects the contemporary style of Mexican buildings. The perfume bottle shape hints at the fragrant and full-bodied tequila contained inside.
This triple distilled blend from the highlands is a sipping tequila across the three varieties, but can also serve to perfect any of your favorite tequila cocktails. For an optimum tequila tasting, it's necessary to use tequila glasses, a thin, high-waisted glass. We find that the best are made by Riedel, to experience premium flavors and intensified aromas. If you prefer, do as the locals do and find a handblown tall glass perfect for a small pour. It's important to exhale after any tequila tasting to fully enjoy the flavors of the spirit.
