Tequila. is a town in Mexico’s western state of Jalisco known for its production of the famous spirit. Near the foot of the Tequila Volcano, the outskirts of town are dotted with fields of blue agave. The production process can be observed at several distilleries and haciendas. The Museo Nacional del Tequila and the Museo Los Abuelos feature exhibits on the history of the drink.
According to the booklet, while in Tequila country, you can also try eating some Tacos and do some archeological exploration in Guachimontones.
The back of the booklet always lists the brands that contributed items to the box.

EL TEQUILIEÑO REPOSADO RARE. Tequila was barely a blip on the radar of most drinkers outside Mexico when Don Jorge Salles Cuervo Founded the El Tequilieño distillery in Jalisco in 1959.
There’s a long introduction about this month’s featured item, the El TequilieñoTequila. It’s basically about the unique procedure used to cultivate their tequila.
One of the features that make this drink stand out against any other tequila is that it was aged in a pipon, which holds more than 50 times the regular. the aging process provides more interaction with the wood and with the oxygen in the barrel.
El Tequileño Tequila. This tequila was extensively aged for 6 years and 4 months in a large pipon American Oak Barrel.
Each bottle is individually numbered, and we got the 2,924th bottle out of the 5,000 made.
Featured on the other side of the neck is the signature of the El Tequileño’s master distiller, Antonio Salles!
This tequila opens with strong notes of vanilla, honey, and cooked agave. There’s also a hint of luscious marzipan and some spice.
Look at that beautiful golden color! It’s an amazing tequila, and I also love its rich complexity and noteworthy depth and character.
Herb & Lou’s Infused Ice Cubes ($11.99) Perfect for making cocktails at home, we got instant cocktail mixers in cubes!
There are 6 cubes per box and they are ideal for adding tequila or vodka.
We received the Cucumber & Watermelon variant. It also has notes of clover honey and thyme. So springy and delicious!
These cocktail mixers are alcohol-free, naturally-flavored, and low-calorie!
To use these cubes, you need to freeze them first!
Each cube is individually packaged in a packet! You can freeze them together all at once or just one at a time, totally up to you.
Of course, we had to try it right away!
Here’s how the cube looks like when frozen solid!
To prepare, just drop the ice cube in wine glass and then pour a shot of tequila or vodka.
We mixed it with the Reposado Rare tequila included in this box!
We finished our cocktail with salt on the rim of the glass.
This drink is so tasty and absolutely refreshing!
This box felt like a Robb Vices box! This month’s box features only two items, but it’s absolutely worth it. The tequila we got is limited edition, with only 5,000 stocks made worldwide. There are also unique cocktail mixers packed in cubes and infused with refreshing flavors. These create tasty cocktails in an instant, perfect for those who want to whip up their own drinks at home. I always find this box fun and exciting, as there’s always something new to look forward to every month, from high-end home items to gourmet goods that you won’t easily find anywhere. This subscription also makes a perfect gift for any adult with a sophisticated taste! But it’s worth pointing out that this box doesn’t seem to come every month. This March edition didn’t arrive until May 7! This is not really a quarantine thing, it seems to be their MO.
