After six years of development, Tiempo Tequila will launch its first batch of Reposado Cristalino Tequila in the UK, with just 1,320 limited edition bottles. And we have secured one of these to give away to one lucky reader.
Tiempo (meaning ‘time’ in Spanish) has been developed with a conscience, using traditional methods with a modern mindset to create a beautifully light and pure tequila that is perfect for anyone to sip, mix and shake on any occasion.
Crafted from 100% mature blue weber agave, grown and harvested in the Altos and Valley regions of Jalisco, where tequila was born, Tiempo utilises the talents of Master Distiller, Augustin Sanchez Rodriguez to create a liquid that is additive-free, and does not use any chemical intervention.
Working alongside a fifth-generation family of distillers, Tiempo is slow-cooked for 48 hours before being carefully fermented using natural yeast for a further 60 hours. It is then twice distilled before spending up to one year ageing in American oak whiskey casks.
The liquid gains its unique persona through filtration, offering a smooth, pure and complex palate that balances subtle undertones of butter and caramel with notes of beautiful earthy agave.
With versatility in mind, Tiempo’s barrel notes make it perfectly light for sipping, but equally elevating a simple mixer or a cocktail.
Commenting on the release of Tiempo Tequila’s first batch, Co-Founder, James Hughston said: “It takes time to create a tequila that is pure, sustainable, and beautifully versatile, but also respectfully reflects Mexican tradition and Cantina culture. This is a celebration of Mexico, its craft and the people who make it possible – not the inauthentic celebrity saturated market, nor sub-par liquids consumers, unfortunately, associate with the spirit.”
Along with creating a 100% naturally grown agave tequila, Tiempo is working towards ensuring its practices are sustainable by providing living wages for its growing and production team, focusing on sustainable agave farming in the fields, cutting CO2 emissions, reusing agave waste and packaging with recycled glass and materials wherever possible.
Tiempo Tequila is available to enjoy at a selection of London bars including Mariachi, NTs Loft, Leytonstone Tavern, Dona, The Ram Inn and Hacha. Tiempo is also available to purchase online at a number of retailers and via the website tiempo-tequila.com for £54.99.
