K&L Notes

This is such great tequila that it is well worth spending the extra dough. All the bright agave floral notes jump out at you on the nose, and the palate packs a strong kick of spice, rather than alcoholic heat. It is a true pleasure to sip it on its own, but you'll spoil yourself forever if you make a margarita with it. Our highest recommendation. (David Driscoll, K&L Spirits buyer)

    This tequila really showcases the pure, bright flavors that agave is known for when not muddled by added sugars or over-manipulation. With a lighter finish than many of the other tequilas on the shelf , this Arette Suave Blanco lends itself to sipping on its own quite nicely, without being overwhelmed by alcohol. Though I find it would do equally well in a cocktail since its lighter style can help it blend seamlessly with other elements without being an overpowering presence. The Arette is back in stock, but with its ability to appeal to such diverse tastes, it is sure to be gone again soon.

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again, and, now that I'm the spirits buyer, maybe my opinion will hold more weight: Arette makes the best tequila that we carry! The blanco is so elegant and ripe with pure agave flowers, unfettered from any contact with an oak barrel. There are some purists who believe that blanco is the only real tequila, and to them I say, the Arette blanco is tequila in its truest form.

    Arette was founded in 1900 by the Orendain family. Since 1976 it has been produced and bottled by Eduardo and Jaime Orendain in their distillery “El Llano” in Tequila, Mexico. The Blanco is one of the most unique tequilas I have tasted yet. It is very bright and citric, with a lively palate and hints of oak. The Reposado is your sipping tequila: complex, deep and rich. Both are excellent, hand-crafted tequilas that I would highly recommend.

    Arette Artesanal Blanco tequila has become my new "everyday" tequila-- and not because of the very reasonable price! Whether I'm waxing contemplative while sipping it neat, or leisurely drinking margaritas with friends, this blanco fits the bill. There is a nice, sweet agave and white pepper on the nose, while palate entry promises more all that plus a little oil of lemon peel. The finish is pleasant and peppery. Ola!
