HORNITOS® SPICED HONEY
Hornitos® Spiced Honey features 100% blue agave Hornitos® Plata Tequila infused with natural honey flavor and a special spice blend. Hornitos Spiced Honey serves up a clean tequila flavor with a touch of floral honey, rich vanilla and a lingering spice finish. The warm, spicy and caramel notes of honey paired with a unique spice blend provide the perfect balance to the citrusy, peppery and earthy notes found in tequila. The newest addition to the Hornitos Tequila family has an exceptionally smooth and rich flavor, allowing fans to enjoy it neat, on the rocks, as a shot or in a cocktail.
HORNITOS® BLACK BARREL®
Hornitos® Black Barrel® Tequila takes a premium aged Añejo tequila and then ages it two more times in traditional whiskey ways to deliver a superior tequila with complex whiskey notes. We start with 100% pure agave tequila and age it for 12 months in specially toasted oak barrels to create a premium Añejo tequila. It is then moved into deep charred barrels for 4 months, where it starts to pick up whiskey notes. The third aging takes place when the liquid is transferred to toasted oak barrels for 2 additional months to instill a smooth whiskey finish. Award winning Hornitos® Black Barrel® is redefining the tequila experience.
