The superior skills and knowledge of Fabrica de Tequilas’ Master Distiller Mr. Arturo Fuentes Cortes, and his eye for detail have paid off. This year, Rooster Rojo tequila participated for the first time in the “International Tequila & Mezcal Masters 2018 Competition” and immediately received the highest endorsement from industry experts for its exceptional quality and taste.
Along with thorough craftsmanship, and attention to every detail from agave selection to distillation techniques, innovation played an important role for the final result of the Master Distiller’s work. For the first time in the industry’s history, Mr. Arturo Fuentes used special water for the blending of Rooster Rojo tequila – water that was filtered through real Mexican silver. This makes the water softer and richer, which translates into a smoother and more rounded tasting tequila.
Rooster Rojo Reposado has received the SILVER award in the Premium Reposado category, and Rooster Rojo Anejo was rewarded with the SILVER medal in the Premium Anejo category.
The Global Spirits Masters Competition is the world’s most highly regarded series of blind tasting competitions. Launched in 2008, The Global Spirits Masters has continued to seek and reward excellence from across the world, encouraging recognition among consumers and trade for quality in spirits.
