Owned and operated by the Gonzalez Family in Amacueca, Mexico, Real Gusto Tequila has launched its first U.S. distribution at Spec’s in Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio. Real Gusto Tequila has been family-operated for 48 years and is one of the only tequilas to be USDA Organic certified since it is free from fertilizers and insecticides. Already a successful brand in its native Mexico, Real Gusto is a beverage brought directly from nature to preserve the history of traditional tequila making.
“We are so excited to be sharing our family’s traditions and Mexico’s rich history through our premium tequilas,” says Jaime Gonzalez, CEO. “More than ten years of special care and attention goes into each bottle of Real Gusto so that every sip is perfectly smooth and flavorful.”
Real Gusto Tequila is an organic and 100% agave spirit hand-crafted on the 600-acre Rancho Las Lomitas in Central-Western Mexico in the small-town of Amacueca, which is known for its rich natural resources. The tequila is meticulously made in small batches all on the property, starting from the planting and nurturing of the agave plant by hand to the factory distillation process, ensuring a superior taste.
Every batch of Real Gusto Tequila is crafted using traditional recipes and processes that can take up to 12 years to ensure the desired concentration and taste. Real Gusto Tequila uses old mills for fermentation and copper stills for distillation, which is one of the most crucial steps in the making of Real Gusto Tequila and also one of its most unique qualities. The tequila is distilled twice, assuring that only the purest taste remains for a top of the line sipping tequila that results in fewer hangovers and headaches.
Real Gusto Tequila produces three varieties of tequila each with their own distinct flavor and finish:
· Real Gusto Blanco (Silver) is the traditional flavor with the aromas of crisp agave combined with fresh fruit tones. Lightly sweet, the tequila has a spectacular taste of pure agave with a soft finish.
· Real Gusto Reposado (Aged) is stored six months in white oak barrels to achieve an incomparable flavor that time has engraved in wood. The aged tequila boasts a stimulating aroma of citric notes, exotic spices and sweet agave flavour. The elegant taste of vanilla and light cinnamon is balanced with traces of apple and fruit notes for a finish with a touch of honey.
· Real Gusto Añejo (Extra Aged) is stored for more than a year in brand new white oak barrels and offers an unexpected aroma of wood, vanilla with a touch of caramel. The extra aged tequila has an elegant complexity of oak, honey, vanilla and caramel notes to result in unique and distinguished tequila.
All three varieties are now available at select Spec’s stores in Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio.
