Vikera Tequila

Elif Oztuna

VIKERA TEQUILA embodies the story of Melly Barajas, owner and master distiller of Vinos y Licores Aztecs, which is 100% owned and operated by women. Melly has had the chance to make a difference by providing many women the opportunity to maintain a steady career in the art of crafting the finest 100% blue agave Tequila in Mexico. Her ability to empower these women has earned her the name “Doña Melly” due to the impact she has made on many lives in her community. In the spirit of their hard work and dedication to the craft, Vikera Tequila is named after Melly and her Lady Vikings or "Vikeras". In order to help Melly continue to change lives, proceeds generated from each bottle of Vikera Tequila sold will be used to provide education and opportunities for the people of Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico.

EXTRAORDINARY TEQUILA MADE BY LADY VIKINGS

Vikera offers extraordinarily smooth and complex Tequila because of the unique oxygenated process, longer barrel aging and earthy notes that come from the highlands region of Tequila. Our four varietals provide a distinct experience depending on your occasion and your tastes and are meant to be savored the same way you would savor a beautiful glass of wine.

 


BLANCO

VIKERA BLANCO is a unique “white” tequila infused with Anejo. The Blanco is distilled three times and then “oxygenated” to create a smooth, crisp flavor with a slightly oak and vanilla finish.

WHAT SETS IT APART

Clear or "white" tequilas are not usually aged and can have a "tin-like" flavor. They are most commonly used to mix in a margarita or other cocktail. Blanco is different because it is infused a three-year old Añejo into it to add a slightly oak flavor.

SERVING SUGGESTION: We recommend enjoying Blanco tequila over ice or in a premium margarita.

REPOSADO

Longer than other tequilas, VIKERA REPOSADO is aged in American white oak barrels for a minimum of six months. This extra aging gives Reposado a rich, gold color along with a slightly oak flavor. As with all Vikera tequilas, Reposado goes through an oxygenation process to give it an elegant and smooth finish.

WHAT SETS IT APART

Reposado means "rested" or "aged" and is used to describe tequila that has been put in an oak barrel unlike the Blanco tequila which goes into a used Jack Daniels barrel. Reposado is aged for eight to nine months versus the average of two months based on the assessment of the perfect flavor profile.

SERVING SUGGESTION: We recommend enjoying Reposado over ice or simply with a squeeze of lime.

AÑEJO

VIKERA AÑEJO is aged for a minimum of three years, much longer than the industry standard. The result is the highest quality flavor with a dark hue and an extremely smooth finish.

WHAT SETS IT APART

Añejo is the next stage. In order to legally be classified as an Añejo Tequila, it must be aged for a minimum of one year. Añejo is aged for three years instead of one!

EXTRA AÑEJO

Aged for seven years, this tequila has an extraordinarily oaky flavor similar to a fine bourbon. Its overall flavor imparts a creamy texture and ultra-smooth taste. 

WHAT SETS IT APART

In order to qualify as an Extra Añejo, the tequila has to be aged for three years. It is aged for seven years (double the time!) which gives its extraordinarily oaky flavor similar to a fine bourbon. Our Extra Añejo is the smoothest and most complex compared to other varietals. This makes it similar to a wine brand with a vintage attached to indicate premium quality.

THE GIVING COMPONENT Our goal is to help support the inspiring women who run the distillery in Mexico and their community who support us every day. With this in mind, proceeds generated from each bottle of VIKERA TEQUILA sold will be used to provide education and opportunities for the people of Valle de Guadalupe. Above all, we believe in giving back and helping others follow their passion and dreams.

Martell VS Single Distillery

Elif Oztuna

Martell VS Single Distillery marries spirits from a single distillation source in the Cognac region, in France, for a richer and more intense expression of the Martell distillation style.

Among the great cognac houses, Martell double distills exclusively clear wines – from which all sediments have been removed – in order to preserve the authentic fruity aromas of the grapes, and reveal an extreme finesse, that are hallmarks of the Martell style. Taking this approach further, each bottle of Martell VS Single Distillery is blended from eaux-de-vie derived from a single distillation source. In this supremely smooth blend, the luscious fruity aromas associated with Martell are truly taken to new heights.

TASTING NOTES

An easy, smooth and fruity blend.

Bright and golden in colour, Martell VS Single Distillery reveals pleasant notes of plum, apricot and candied lemon on the nose. Its rich fruity flavours on the palate and its luscious mouthfeel make for a great Cognac to enjoy in long drinks or in cocktails.

CURIOUS SIDECAR

  • 45 ml Martell VS Single Distillery
  • 20 ml triple sec
  • 15 ml lemon juice
  • Orange peel
  • Ice

Pour all ingredients into the cocktail shaker. Shake well until the metal gets frosted. Strain into a coupe glass. Twist an orange peel over the drink and discard.

Pochteca Agave Liqueur

Sonia Dubon

Pochteca Liqueurs are made with 100% agave tequila and agave nectar. They are made from all natural extracts obtained from alcohol infused herbs, grains and fruits of the region. The combination of these materials gives each liqueur, while refined and complex, a well-balanced and well defined flavor.

Pochteca is the only liqueur on the market that is made with agave nectar and all natural fruit extracts and is considered a “smooth” beverage, which can be savored.

They are easy to digest and can be consumed as an after dinner drink or with a snack and/or prepared in many different ways compared to other strong drinks that are consumed straight.

Sonia Dubon

American Born is an incredible brand that represents the history and roots of our country while also celebrating today's American lifestyle and culture," said Eric Dopkins, chief executive officer of Milestone Brands.

American Born's Peach and Apple whiskeys are infused with real fruit juices and all-natural flavors. Bottled in Nashville, Tenn, they are best enjoyed on the rocks, with ginger ale, cola, tea or as a shot.

Botanist Gin

Sonia Dubon

BODY – The spirit is satin smooth gliding over the palate like no gin you have ever tried before. A totally seductive experience.

NOSE – The aromas explode like an olfactory Aurora Borealis, filling the senses with meteorites of smell sensations as they explode from the glass. Sweet delicate menthol, apple mint, spring woodlands, juniper, coriander with aniseed undertones, lemon and orange peel, a bouquet of summer flowers on the Machir, honey from thistle, coconut from gorse, wild mint and summer meadows. It’s a magical melody of Islay’s natural bounty from the Atlantic washed beaches to the summit of heather covered hills. Inhale and you’re there on the queen of the Hebrides!

PALATE – The taste is rich and mellow; cool on entry then as it reaches the back palate you can feel the warmth and absolute purity of slow unhurried distillation. This is a bewitching, delectable and luxurious gin; its citrus freshness excites and stimulates the taste buds allowing you to experience a star-burst of flavours as they explode across the palate.

FINISH – All this from a beaten up old pot still, operated by beaten up distillers on the coast of heaven.

MOOD – Carefree. The electric buzz of illicit anticipation.
