BOISE, ID, October 29, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Tequila aficionados are raising their glasses to an up and coming brand that has been creating quite a buzz.
Volans Ultra Premium Tequila is from the region of Los Altos in Jalisco, Mexico and has been honored with seven international spirit awards so far this year. Volans Extra Añejo has won 6 awards, making it one of the most awarded Extra Añejo Tequila of the year. The newly-released Volans Blanco just won a Gold Medal at the Tequila Mezcal Challenge in Denver, Colorado.
At the Sip Awards in Irvine, California from May 4th-May 27th, Volans was awarded Platinum distinction in the Agave Tequila Extra Añejo category. Now in their 11th year, these awards welcome consumer judges to determine the winners. This means the contest is unaffected by industry bias, as it allows the public to choose their favorites.
Volans also picked up Gold at the San Diego International Wine & Spirits Challenge - scoring a total of 93 points. Additionally, in March the Idaho-based tequila company picked up a Gold Medal at the Denver Spirits Competition for their oak-barrel-aged spirit.
This award-winning Extra Añejo also received Gold at the Los Angeles Spirits Competition, plus a Silver Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Finally, this tequila won a Silver Medal at the New York International Spirits Competition - with a score of 92 points.
What makes this multi-award-winning tequila stand out? Volans is made from 100% Blue Weber Agave, harvested at the peak of maturity. Then, it's slow-cooked for 22 hours in a masonry stone oven - evenly from top and bottom to avoid overcooking. The water used is a mixture of deep well, rain, and spring water to give just the right amount of minerality to the tequila.
With such love and care given to perfecting the taste, it's no wonder this ultra-premium tequila has been picking up accolades and awards at so many international competitions this year.
"We are so honored that Volans Tequila has been recognized by so many International Spirit Awards this year," says Chad Allen, Volans Tequila Co-Owner. "We've spent 4 years working to bring Volans to market. Our whole goal is to bring a wonderful tequila tasting experience to you, your friends and your family. Our Master Distiller Felipe Camarena and all the great people at El Pandillo Distillery, NOM 1579, are true masters at their craft."
Born in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico; Volans is made at El Pandillo Distillery, the world's highest-rated tequila distillery. Both are fourth-generation family-owned businesses and are dedicated to making the best tequila in Mexico.
Volans operations are based in Idaho, making it the only Idaho based tequila company. Volans Tequila is made with pride using historical and traditional tequila-making methods, while also embracing sustainability and innovation.
