TeQava: Tequila That Has Built-In Sparkle

WHAT lingers in the memory is the taste of a mild fruit – some kind of berry or nectar. It’s a little sweet, but not too sweet for the palate that prefers dry to fruity. It is light and refreshing.

That is what the memory serves about TeQava. Say what? TeQava, it’s the world’s first ready-mixed sparkling tequila – straight outta the revered Atotonilco distillery in the highland town of Jalisco, Mexico.

TeQava. What’s in a name? It stems from the word Tequila – Teq and from cava, the Spanish word for sparkling wine. TeQava, however, contains no wine. (See video above.)

What’s its pedigree? TeQava is made from a triple-distilled blend of silver tequila made with 8-year-old agave. These combine to make one of the purest forms of tequila. This is the good stuff, not to be wasted on shots, rather savored like a cognac. Added to these ingredients is a mix of natural flavors and carbonation. Get that? It’s all natural – no processed sugars.

TeQava can be enjoyed on the rocks or with no ice at all. Photos from TeQava Facebook page.

TeQava has been available in the United States for approximately two months. It will roll out over select parts of the rest of the world in the coming months. Yours Truly had the pleasure of drinking TeQava over two days last month during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York. It was a main attraction in Allure Upstairs, the VIP section of one of several media lounges.

The good, fine folks behind TeQava would be ever so pleased if consumers refrained from adding vodka, whisky, rum or any other spirits to their beverage. If a body must add something, it is advised that it be more fine tequila or, simply ice.

A tequila-lime mahi mahi taco would pair well with TeQava.

Consumers are strongly encouraged to pair TeQava with baked, roasted, sautéed or grilled fish, beef and pork. Of course, they feel obligated to remind consumers to drink responsibly.
