It’s an entirely new way of enjoying tequila as this pioneering variant is the first Smoked Pineapple infused tequila in the world. Rooster Rojo’s Master Distiller experimented with various pineapples and different roast levels for over a year until the perfect variety and smokiness was found. Rooster Rojo uses only Red Spanish Pineapples for this infusion due to the exceptional taste profile they provide. Blended with Rooster Rojo Anejo Tequila it gives an exceptional result: a smooth but subtle drink which can be enjoyed neat or on the rocks, or in contemporary cocktails.

If you like to know the technical side of things, this tequila, from global drinks experts, Amber Beverage Group, uses 100% Blue Weber Agave, Rooster Rojo Tequila (38% ABV) is produced in small batches at the very base of the Volćan de Tequila. Carefully crafted by the Fabrica de Tequilas Finos specialists and blended with water that is filtered through Mexican silver, Rooster Rojo is the first tequila to use this technique.

Even if you don’t consider yourself to be a tequila expert, this will appeal to those who enjoy experimenting with entirely new flavours. It’s like taking a journey into Mexico and the Caribbean: full of sunlight, elegant fruits, and excellence. Hispanic-inspired taste notes are on trend right now: with heat, smokiness, and sour, fruity notes, this is a taste like nothing you’ll have tried before.

Pineapple flavours are of course already popular, being the base of is some of the most recognizable cocktails in the world, notably a Pina Colada. Yet not all pineapples are created equal. There are 9 common varieties consumed in the world, and the choice of Red Spanish Pineapples combined with the finest tequila delivers a structured, pleasant sensation of exotic, ripe fruits and spices layered with a subtle, smoky finish.

It is available through good online speciality drinks retailers.
