MORE INFORMATION:
La Tierras Blanco is a clear, unaged spirit that typically has a lighter body, giving it a crisp and refreshing sensation on the palate. The taste profile is characterised by notes of citrus, herbs, and vegetal flavors, which contribute to a tangy, zesty flavor that is slightly sweet. The addition of pepper notes can provide a subtle spicy kick to the taste experience. The acidity of the Agave spirit, combined with its body, affects the overall taste profile. The acidity gives the Agave spirit a bright and zesty characteristic, which can be perceived as a slight tanginess on the palate. The spirit's fresh and vibrant flavors pair well with light and fresh dishes that can complement its bright notes of citrus and vegetal. The body of the Agave spirit, which is composed of a combination of alcohol, water, and other compounds, contributes to its texture and mouthfeel. The Agaves lighter body means it feels more watery and less viscous in your mouth. As you swallow the Agave spirit, you'll experience the finish, which is the aftertaste that lingers on your tongue. Our Blanco typically has a short finish, with the flavors dissipating quickly. This refreshing and tangy taste profile makes it a great choice for sipping on its own or as a base for cocktails, as it won't overpower other flavors in a drink. The aroma of the Agave spirit is also an important factor in its taste profile. The nose of the Agave spirit is typically characterised by a fresh and vibrant aroma of agave, with hints of citrus, pepper, and earthy undertones. The aroma adds additional depth to the overall taste experience of the spirit.

The citrus and vegetal notes in the Agave complement the flavors of the fish and fresh toppings. 4-Fresh salads: The light, refreshing body of the Blanco pairs well with fresh, leafy salads. The tangy notes in the Agave can help brighten the flavors of the salad dressing and complement the fresh veggies. 5-Braai Broodjies: Grilled cheese sandwiches made with tomato, onion, and chutney is a perfect pair with a Blanco Agave spirit. The fresh and tangy flavors of the sandwich work well with the citrus notes of the Agave, while the creaminess of the cheese can contrast with the spirit's sharpness. 6-Chicken chakalaka: The spicy and tangy flavors of chakalaka can contrast with the sharp notes of the spirit, creating a flavorful pairing.
