Let’s talk Tequila: Santera Tequila is a 100% blue agave luxury tequila that recently launched and is available at your neighborhood liquor store as well as bars and restaurants throughout NYC. There are three expressions in the line- Blanco (unaged), Reposado (aged up to 7 months in American oak barrels) and Añejo (aged up to 16 months in American oak, with a small amount of 3 year old tequila added to the final blend for extra body). For those seeking to pair this tequila with some Tacos or Quesadillas, check out Santera at three NYC cocktail spots this Thursday May 5th where you can enjoy these fine cocktails:
