There's no doubt that tequila and tacos go hand in hand with one another; whether it's for Taco Tuesday, Thirsty Thursday, or any day of the week really. Tacos and tequila are a duo, and it's just straight up wrong to have one without the other. Tanteo Tequila gets that, and they just rolled out their 'Blanco' tequila nationwide; on that note, here's what you need to know about the release.

Well for starters, Tanteo Tequila is a tequila that's made in the only distillery owned by its cooperative of agave farmers, announces national rollout for Tanteo Blanco Tequila, bottled at 85 proof and joining their existing line of all-natural infused expressions including Jalapeño, Chipotle and Habanero. The nice thing about Tanteo Tequila and all of their products is that they're all made from fair trade, 100% Blue Weber agave, then distilled utilizing traditional fermentation and distillation methods. The company emphasizes fair labor practices, so the Tanteo Tequila distillery is credited with revitalizing the small town of Juanacatlán where it is located.

Tanteo Tequila CEO and Master Blender Neil Grosscup has stated that “Our high proof blanco is the base of our spicy infusions. During tours of the distillery, guests would ask if they could buy a bottle of our Blanco so often that I knew we had to bring it stateside." He continues this by saying that “We specifically designed Tanteo Blanco Tequila to improve a traditional margarita, with its higher proof and perfect balance of floral, sweet agave and mineral notes mixing seamlessly." In other words; expect your drinks to be smooth tasting.

Tasting notes for Tanteo Tequila's Blanco tequila happen to be floral and sweet with a hint of tropical fruits including mango, pineapple and guava. The entry is bright and zippy, revealing notes of black pepper and minerality on the palate to balance the sweetness of the agave. With a bold yet silky mouthfeel, Tanteo Blanco Tequila departs with a long and vibrant finish, offering notes of tropical fruit. Bottles retail for $39.99 online and in stores.
