Atanasio Artisanal Blanco Tequila
Tequila Atanasio comes from the small town of El Medineño, just 20 minutes north west of the town of Tequila. The name Atanasio comes from Spanish and Greek roots, and means “immortal,” tying closely to the brand as they pay homage to it’s creator, Tio Atanasio, who lived to be 103 years old. --You’ll see this number on the neck of the bottle in honor of him and his philosophy that “with a little bit of Tequila every day, one can live forever.” Now, generations later, with Maestro Tequilero Don Chico Jiminez at the helm, Atanasio produces some of our favorite expressions of Tequila coming from the Valley.
A bit of funk in the blanco makes this a stand out for tequila aficionados. Big aromas of thoroughly roasted agave appear after some time resting in the glass. A hint of mint in the finish balances some of the funk.
