Review: El Jimador Silver Tequila

Posted by Arctic Wolf on July 16, 2018

El Jimador Tequila is owned by Brown-Froman. The Brand is produced thirty miles from Guadalajara, in the state of Jalisco, in the town of Amatitan, at Brown – Forman Tequila Distillery Mexico, S. de R.L. de C.V. which is also referred to as Hacienda Herradura. The Hacienda also produces the more premium Herradura brand as well as Suave 35 and Antiguo. The Jimador tequila is named to pay homage to the jimadors who harvest agave. After it is harvested, the agave is cooked in clay ovens. The juice is extracted after cooking using steel bladed shredders after which it is distilled on old copper pot stills.

Because Hacienda Herradura is located in the Central Lowlands of Jalisco rather than in the Highlands we can expect a more earthy style of tequila than which would be produced in the Highlands where the agave tends to produce a spirit with higher citrus notes and a sharper squeal of peppery spice.

Here is a link to my full review:

Review: El Jimador Silver Tequila

“… The breezes above the glass brought me nice citrus notes (lime in particular) which were joined by an earthy agave scent which seemed to hint at boiled celery and baked squash (maybe some grilled pineapple as well) …”

Please enjoy my review which features a cocktail I have not shared previously, the Juan Collins.

Chimo!

    My experience is similar. I choose El Jimador when I want a tequila that can push through a long drink. I don’t like it so much for Margarita style cocktails where I find the best choice is whichever I enjoy sipping the most.
