Don Fulano Fuerte is the strongest tequila in the range at 50% ABV. Only the exclusive blending process, using the dual stills at La Tequileña distillery, can make this unique Blanco so rich and smooth. It is ideal when enjoyed neat as a sipping tequila but also stands up superbly well in cocktails.
Tequila MatchMaker Rating: 88
Erica Boorom: 'The aroma of the 80 proof blanco comes through here with stronger notes of earth and fruits. The agave still remains the centrepiece though. The mouthfeel is even more oily with more vibrant cooked agave and baking spices. The finish has a long pleasant heat, much like other high proofs. This is a delight to drink.'
Remy Newland: 'Nose: Olives, smoke, cellar mustiness, and black pepper. Flavour: Spicy and oily. Liquorice, cinnamon, roasted nuts and some subtle herbal notes. Wonderful caramelized, sweet agave. Balanced and nuanced finish. The 100 proof packs a pleasant punch."
Aroma: cooked agave, black pepper, alcohol, citrus, olive, cinnamon, earth
Palate: cooked agave, black pepper, alcohol, cinnamon, citrus, olive, savoury green herbs - long peppery, spicy and minty finish
Comment: Powerfully flavoured with a good mix of sweet agave fruit and savoury herbal notes. It’s a classic white sipping Tequila, but the extra strength makes it a must-have for cocktails, where you want the agave flavour to shine through.
Interesting fact: The mission at Don Fulano has always been to produce exceptional tequila. They employ a truly unique dual distillation process; an old-style double column still and also a traditional copper pot still, using heat to eliminate any unwanted alcohols. The two distillates are then blended. Anywhere between 12-16% of the distillate comes from the column still, this process is used exclusively by Don Fulano and allows them to consistently create tequilas of the highest quality.

Shrubs are usually fruit, sugar and vinegar syrups. The Nonsuch brand is from the Aspall vinegar people! However, they don't use sugar but add apple juice for sweetness. It is a non-alcoholic concentrated syrup that can be aperitif with an aroma of pineapple, caramel with hints of ginger. The combination of cooked pineapple, caramel and the heat of ginger gives good body and is well complemented by the sourness of the vinegar. The finish is rich, long and intense.This shrub has a natural affinity with all rums - be it white in a Daiquiri or golden and dark in a Mai Tai or use to make Virgin Pina Colada.Each bottle is 500ml concentrated syrupCool Chile Rating: Oh my, this stuff is great, really pineapple-y with a little warmth in the throat from the ginger but no mustiness that you can sometimes get with ginger in a cordial - maybe because they use fresh ginger? Both recipes below are great - maybe a little too easy to make and drink - we tried them with tequila blanco...terrific!
