Clear nickel color. Fruity aromas of ripe pear, smoked pineapple, kiwi and gooseberry jam, salsa verde, moss, chalk, and pink peppercorns with a silky, crisp, dryish light body and a peppery, rapid green apple taffy, watercress, resin, sea salt, and crushed peppercorns finish. A fresh and fruity Blanco Tequila for bright, warm weather cocktails.

Silver or Blanco/White Tequilas are clear, with little (no more than 60 days in stainless steel tanks) or no aging. They can be either 100% agave or mixto. Silver Tequilas are used primarily for mixing and blend particularly well into fruit-based drinks.
