Highlighted at the event was their signature Silver Tequila. El Cristiano Silver, its foundation, boasts unrivaled complexity and depth with coil copper stills imparting a pure, clean taste and full mouth roundness. A full body with bright, silver hues and defined legs. Subtly sweet cooked agave aromas with hints of butter, notes of mature fruit, and spicy hints of Bay Leaf and Rosemary.

El Cristiano is dedicated to producing the purist tequila with no additives – (85% of tequila today has sugars and thickeners added) – with a high focus on harvesting only mature agave aged at least five years and certain sizing through sustainable agriculture practices. By establishing this process, they have eliminated the need for additives which would change the true essence of 100% Highlands Blue Weber Agave.
