To sip or not to sip? Try both!

Don't let the looks deceive you! Despite their cool appearances, Rudo and Tecnico are made of substance. They are crafted from 100% blue agave and with the careful attention to quality each step of the way. These tequilas are smooth, elaborated and each sip melts into a rich bouquet of toasted agave flavors. Designed primarily for sipping, neither Rudo nor Tecnico need to hide behind the added flavors of fancy cocktail ingredients as many other tequilas with inferior taste do. Neither they will make you cringe - remember the infamous "tequila face"?

However, the high quality clean tequila like Rudo or Tecnico does elevate the flavors of the cocktail. Our tequila does not have to be disguised by adding other ingredients which cover up harsh taste and poor flavor. On the contrary, Rudo and Tecnico combine with the flavors you are adding to tequila, accentuate them and really raise the bar of your favorite beverage. We offer you several cocktail recipes to try. Please enjoy! Or just sit back, relax and have a sip or two. Remember to keep the spirit of Lucha Libre - drink responsibly!
