8/10/19– Nothing says pool-side quite like watermelon. This delicious mix of spicy and cool is the perfect day time jam – a chili infused agave is balanced by the cooling fruit, with some herbal notes from the cilantro. A bit of funk on the finish thanks to the fino sherry makes this drink beautifully complex and unique.
REVEL’s Reposado garnered significant praise from the judges, winning both a gold medal and being crowned “Tequila Reposado of the Year.” REVEL’s Blanco Avila® also took home the bronze medal at the competition.
“Anyone who is a dedicated whiskey drinker or a self-proclaimed whiskey snob likely orders their favorite brown drink every time they go out. And that’s fine, if you’re OK with missing out on a wealth of other spirits that you’ll probably love. Aged tequila is one of them.”
4/12/18 – Ah, the Old Fashioned. A true classic the likes of which has had its recipe evolve (and debated) over centuries.
The name says it all. It’s old. One of the very first cocktails in fact – invented in 1880 by aristocrat James E. Pepper. And whether you drink your classic Old Fashioned with Rye or Bourbon, fruit muddled or not (we don’t condone!); many dark (and sometimes light) spirit riffs have been inspired by this drink over the years.
We’ve put our own spin on it, and since Revel Avila Reposado is aged in American oak whiskey barrels, we figured we’d be doing this classic justice. In an effort of keeping with the most traditional way of serving the drink, we’ve kept it simple. A few subtle other flavors perfectly compliment the Avila but also let it shine.
