When it comes to alcohol, Scotland is best known for, well, its Scotch. But one Scottish company has ventured into the world of Tequila. UWA Tequila is a tequila company based in Aberdeen, Scotland, and it touts itself as the first ever Tequila aged in Scotch whisky barrels by a Scottish company. Of course, to be considered Tequila, it must be made in Mexico. So to start, the company ships Speyside single malt Scotch casks from Scotland to Tequila, Mexico, where the spirit is aged and bottled. Then it’s brought back to the U.K. and distributed. Speyside is one of the five Scotch-producing regions in Scotland. UWA Tequila is the first Tequila company to age its Tequila in single malt Scotch whiskey casks, as opposed to used American bourbon casks.
This is a super premium 100% Blue Weber agave small batch craft Tequila. Taking insipiration from their Scottish roots and the country’s love for Whisky the co-founders specialises in unique, aged agave spirits and also boasts one of the smoothest sipping and mixing blanco Tequila’s currently available. The blanco Tequila is gently flavoured by the mango, orange and lemon trees that surround the estate, with hints of sweetness and strong cooked agave notes on the finish.
