If you flip back a few chapters in the history books to ancient, pre-Hispanic Mexico, you’ll find that the agave plant was deeply rooted within the cultures of that time period and was surrounded by a mystique that’s as fascinating as it is dynamic.
10/9/19-The ideal fall cocktail for when you’re home for the holidays, this drink is like a boozy pumpkin pie in a glass. There are existing hints of spice already found in Revel reposado, not to mention the beautiful bourbon whiskey notes from its’ aging process, all of which bring out the spices found in this homemade pumpkin spice recipe. The sweetened condensed milk adds a decadent richness to the drink, making it the perfect fireplace companion
9/26/19- It’s always a fun day at the office when bartenders come by to play around in the R&D Bar. For Episode Two (up now on IGTV), Nightshade’s Dan O’Reilly came up with this delicious fall-inspired cocktail that combines Revel Avila Blanco with fig, vanilla, cinnamon and prickly pear. We were blown away by the incredible bright orange color and even more so by the flavors. Just the right balance of sweet and tart on this one.
8/28/19– For the very first episode of our “Revel R&D Bar” series (find it on our Instagram TV), Jessica Morgan from Gold Diggers Hollywood stopped by to whip up this stunning tiki concoction. She mixed Revel Blanco with this delicious, funky rum from Oaxaca, Mexico (because, of course). Citrus, guava, tiki bitters and egg white to balance it out left us wondering two things — why don’t more people use guava juice in cocktails, and why does summer have to end??
8/5/19–The ultimate summer- time cocktail, this spritz is a fresh, bubbly combo of spirit and sparkling. Our riff combines Revel Avila Blanco with notes of ginger and citrus. The Crème de Gingembre has these exotic, spicy, almost candied ginger notes and while people generally think of ginger as winter flavor found in teas and pies, the freshness of this liqueur combined with a high quality ginger beer is undeniably summer.
“First there was tequila, then there was mezcal, and now there is Avila, a whole new category of agave-based spirit. Cheddar’s Alyssa Julya Smith sat down with Revel Spirits co-founder and CEO Micah McFarlane and Kenny ‘Babyface’ Edmonds to learn more about the brand’s flagship product.”
“Meet Avila, the 100% blue agave spirit harvested and distilled in the small Mexican state of Morelos. Recently debuted by new company Revel Spirits, Avila blends the manufacturing processes of tequila and mezcal to create a smooth, slightly smokey flavor profile—almost a hybrid of the two agave industry leaders.”
