Finalizing your party plans for Dia de Los Muertos? No fiesta would be complete without tequila, and we're loving KAH Tequila’s unique hand-painted skull bottles created by Mexican artists and inspired by the Day of the Dead.
KAH, which means "life" in the ancient Mayan language, offers four different types of tequila to choose from including Tequila Blanco, Tequila Añejo, Tequila Reposado, and Tequila Extra Añejo. Each flavor is as unique as the collectable numbered skull decanters that it’s housed in.
If you are new to tequila and are looking to expand your knowledge of the Mexican spirit, here is the breakdown of the differences:
Tequila Blanco: This white (or clear) spirit has no additives and is stored immediately after distillation (or aged less than two months) in neutral oak barrels or stainless steel. KAH’s version has “intense sweet notes of the cooked agave followed by a spicy white peppery punch.”
Tequila Reposado: Reposado, which means rested, is a tequila of white (or clear) color. It has been aged a minimum of two months but less than one year in oak barrels of no particular size. KAH’s award-winning version is one of the few types of tequila to be 110 proof (the highest proof available) and is aged for ten months in French limousine casks. It features a full agave flavor with hints of vanilla and caramel.
Tequila Añejo: This golden colored spirit is aged at least one year but no more than three in small oak barrels. KAH’s version offers an aroma of coffee, chocolate and tobacco with vanilla and spice notes.
Tequila Extra Añejo: Golden in color, this tequila has been aged for at least three years in oak barrels. KAH’s features smooth pepper and smoky wood flavors with hints of sweet spice, honey maple, caramel and vanilla. It has been aged 4.5 years in American oak barrels.
