Spirit of the Week

Lunazul Reposado Tequila
Regularly $19.99, Sale Price $16.99

I’ve got another great value for you this week. It’s not easy finding a really good Tequila under $20 but this is one of those finds. I’m not the only one who thinks so. Wine Enthusiast gave it 93 points and a Best Buy designation“Spicy and herbaceous aromas, plus a touch of coconut lead into this Tequila. The palate echoes that coconut, plus vanilla and just enough baking spice heat to provide depth and complexity.” If you’re a Tequila enthusiast you’ll be amazed at how well this drinks for the money.

Lunazul Reposado is a 100% agave tequila produced at Tierra de Agaves Distillery. The agave, which has a pedigree dating back to 1758, is estate grown right outside of the town of Tequila in Jalisco. The agaves are harvested at seven to nine years and then cooked for a day before being shredded to extract the juices. After being fermented with a yeast unique to Lunazul this reposado is double distilled in small batches. It is then aged for 6 months in former bourbon barrels before bottling.
