Corazón Tequila is distilled and aged at Casa San Matias, a family-owned distillery in Jalisco, Mexico that possesses over 130 years of experience. Their tequilas are single-estate cultivated, distilled and hand-bottled. Made from 100% Blue Weber agave, only the highest quality plants are selected to create Corazón. The Corazón portfolio includes the Single Estate Tequilas, Single Barrel Tequilas and the Corazón Expresiones collection.
So what exactly is Blanco? It’s clear, unaged tequila that’s traditionally bottled right after being distilled. You may hear the tequila referred to as silver or plata, but is more commonly called white or Blanco.
SouthTrade International imports Corazón Tequila to Australia. Their portfolio includes Southern Comfort, Fireball Whisky, Starward Whisky, Adelaide Hills Distillery and the World’s most awarded distillery’s flagship Bourbon – Buffalo Trace.
Andrew Milne from SouthTrade International, comments, “We’re thrilled to be able to offer Australians great tequila to sip and enjoy with friends on its own or in a cocktail.”
You can find the award-winning Blanco and other Corazón tequilas at all good liquor stores.
