Pounding tequila shots is one of those things that can immediately make you feel like a rock star. It’s only fitting then that you enjoy the classic Mexican spirit out of a bottle fashioned into the shape of modern music’s most familiar contour: the electric guitar. Rock ‘N Roll Imports out of Stockton, California offer a headbanging trio of premium quality tequilas that meld some fine flavors with an ingenius marketing flair. Not only will the playful bottles stick out in your liquor cabinet, they also come with an extra shot fully-loaded into the ‘headstock’ of the guitar.
The 750 ml packaging is available in Blanco, Mango, and Coffee. This weekend at the Spirits Carnival, I was able to take down a few shots of the deep, amber-hued Coffee. Although I’m usually not one to mix my java flavors with my hooch, I was pleasantly surprised by the smooth, subtly-sweet tones of this 64 proof spirit. Although it’s not as strong as a more traditional tequila, it’s great when served solo, or to mix into a whole slew of creative cocktails.
Sometimes catchy marketing can be used as a novelty to disguise an inferior product. But with Rock N’ Roll Tequila, you get to experience a spirit that lives up to the hype of it’s unique packaging. One taste and you’ll be begging for an encore.
