Olmeca Altos Plata TequilaIf you’re in Denver or Chicago, be glad you’re reading this. For everyone else, it may be coming your way as the offering expands into your markets or as you order some…it is worth searching for online.

Olmeca Altos Plata and Reposado Tequilas are both distinct 100% Blue Agave Tequilas from the celebrated Los Altos region of Jalisco, Mexico. Pernod Ricard USA has introduced these in the USA with initial availability in Chicago and Denver only. This tequila was conceived as a collaboration among the tequila experts, Olmeca Altos is the creation of Master Tequilero Jesus Hernandez and internationally acclaimed bartenders Henry Besant and Dre Masso.

During our tasting of these tequilas, we find both of the Plata and Reposado fine enough to sip on their own while being bold enough to preserve the integrity of the agave when mixed in a margarita.

And for that touch of Bourbon, the Reposado is aged in ex-Bourbon casks.
