What do Bordeaux and Tequila have in common? Not a lot. However the oak barrels which have been used to age red Bordeaux wine are now finding another lease of life. AsomBroso La Rosa Tequila is advertised as the first Bordeaux barrel aged tequila and comes in a range of rosy hues. The colour comes from the wine stained barrels and the flavour is imparted by the lingering essence of the claret.
It's an interesting concept that has attracted a lot of attention in the USA and the tequila is appealing to people who like a richer flavoured, more aromatic kick. The tequilas come in versions aged 3 or 11 months and the bottles are collectable.
