Bottled directly from the still, Peligroso Silver Tequila is packaged in clear flint glass to reflect its purity and crystal clear color. The bouquet is saturated with spice, floral and citrus aromas, along with light hints of vegetal agave and earth.

 

The palate is full-bodied, almost oily in texture, with a classic highlands minerality and subtle flavors of agave, earth, green bell pepper, cinnamon, cracked pepper, and lemon grass. Peligroso Silver has a warming finish with nuances of white pepper and lemon grass. A brilliant cocktail ingredient, this over-proof silver is an also excellent sipping blanco.

Peligroso (Spanish for “Dangerous”) is a 100% WEBER Blue Agave Tequila, grown and harvested at the “El Viejito” distillery in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. Originally founded in 1937, “El Viejito” recently completed a new modern and efficient distillery, representing their commitment to social and economic development as well as the environment, as El Viejito is currently in the process of obtaining a “clean industry” certification. 

 

Peligroso’s agave is cultivated in red volcanic soil and harvested at the peak of ripeness. After harvesting, extra time and care is taken to cut away the bitter center cone of the agave plant, further enhancing the quality and flavor of the finished tequila. Peligroso’s agave is then steamed in traditional brick ovens for up to 3 days, and distilled in copper and stainless pots to a unique 84 proof, or 42% abv. The higher concentration of alcohol indicates that less water is used to dilute the tequila to its bottling strength, resulting in a richer, more luxurious, and more flavorful spirit.

 

After distillation, Peligroso is aged to perfection in white oak whiskey barrels from Tennessee. Each and every batch is tasted by Peligroso’s chief taste master to guarantee its outstanding quality before it is bottled, corked, and numbered by hand, to certify its authenticity. Peligroso is also the first brand to offer three separate types of glass to distinguish the unique character of each type of tequila.
