Storywood Tequila has arrived in the UK
insideKENT celebrated National Tequila Day on 24th July with Storywood Tequila, which has just arrived in the UK and, as the only tequila fully matured in whisky casks, is a genuine world first.
Storywood Tequila has the Heart of Mexico and the Soul of Scotland. Founded by Scotsman Michael Ballantyne, who was inspired to create this innovative tequila while spending time in his mother’s hometown of San Miguel De Allende, Mexico. An unexpected meeting with master distiller Luis Trejo at Distiller La Cofradia was the start of his journey creating Storywood’s enticing range of cask aged tequilas.
Storywood Tequila Speyside 14 Añejo, which recently won a Double Gold in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2020, is aged for over 14 months in Scottish Speyside whisky casks and is tantalising with notes of toasting oak, roasted nuts and treacle toffee. Can be served neat, on ice or in an Old Fashioned Cocktail.
Add ice to a rocks glass. Pour in 50ml of Storywood Tequila Speyside 14 Añejo and garnish with a dehydrated lime wheel.
Storywood Tequila Speyside 7 Reposado is aged for 7 months in Scottish Speyside whisky casks and tastes of caramel, oak, vanilla and honey on an earthy agave base. Delicious served neat but can be mixed with ginger beer or coca cola in a highball glass with ice and lime wedge.
