A couple of months ago Dr D came to stay and brought the gift of liquid fire – tequila.
Chamucos roughly translates from Spanish to "Boogie Man" and the label has ghostly spirit creatures on it. It is a 100% agave tequila.
Chamucos was originally produced at Tequilena, S.A. de C.V. (NOM-1146). Those original bottles had a brown, glass escudo or medallion on the bottle. Now produced at Tequila Quiote, the bottles are similar but the escudo is a little different and the bottles are clear glass. The tequila is specially aged in white oak barrels and bottled in hand blown bottles in a little town called San Francisco de Asis, in Atotonilco el Alto, Jalisco.
We finished it on the weekend. It was mighty good to the last drop!
