Curamia is a brand new tequila and the brainchild of Dafna Mizrahi, a chef from Guadalajara, Mexico. The model launched late final 12 months within the U.S. with solely a blanco expression; a reposado has since arrived. Of particular observe is its female-centric road cred:

Curamia is the primary tequila model 100% female-founded and made by girls: 95% of the employees on the Leyros distillery, the place it’s made in Mexico, are girls. The Leyros distillery, which focuses on craftsmanship and authenticity is acknowledged as the highest distillery for Tequila making in Mexico. The model is an homage to Mizrahi’s hometown and the highly effective girls who formed her life and profession. Curamia’s ethos is “Queen of Magnificence” or “La Mujer mas Bella” in Spanish, in honor of Dafna’s grandmother, who was identified by that moniker throughout Jalisco, famend for her generosity and presence within the area. In celebration of the ladies who impressed the model, the model got here to life by means of the help of its circle of influential feminine buyers, together with high C-level executives who believed in Mizrahi’s imaginative and prescient.

The Lowlands-born tequila is exceptionally racy on the nostril — heavy with pepper and notes of charred wooden, inexperienced herbs, and a touch of acetone. Extraordinarily spicy and weighty, the tequila’s aromatics pull no punches; these in search of a “mushy” expertise needn’t apply right here. Extra of the identical on the palate: Intensely vegetal, pushed by notes of rosemary and sage, then a slug of recent asphalt. Aggressive and greater than a little bit jarring, the punchy, charred vegetable notes right here may have you ever considering you’re consuming mezcal, the end evoking barbecued meats and grilled scallions. Undoubtedly a distinct animal than I used to be anticipating.

80 proof. NOM 1489.
