July 2021

On a special trip to Miami, Master distiller Tony Salles hosted an exclusive tasting event and presentation of El Tequileño Tequila at Stiltsville in South Beach. Tony is a third-generation distiller, and his father, Juan Salles, who runs the blending and bottling facility, is one of only five to be given the award of ‘gran tequilero’, one of the most respected people in the business.

Named in honor of the people of Tequila, El Tequileño was founded in 1959 by Don Jorge Salles Cuervo with a vision to create only the finest tequila. Sixty years later, El Tequileño is made in the same place using the same recipe by the grandson of Don Jorge.

El Tequileño is one of the most well-known historical brands in the industry. El Tequileño comes originally from the town of Tequila and it is really famous because in this town there’s a bar called La Capilla, a tiny little cantina, famous for making one specific drink: La Batanga. It’s Mexican cola, Tequila, lime juice and with a salt rim, and stirred with a knife. La Capilla has won multiple awards as one of the most iconic bars in Mexico; the only tequila they use for La Batanga is El Tequileño.

EL Tequileño Reposado Rare: is a limited edition tequila aged for 6 years in a large American Oak barrel called a Pipon. Despite being aged longer than most Extra Añejos, this must be labeled Reposado due to the size of the barrel exceeding the 600L maximum. Therefore, El Tequileño presents the world’s first Reposado Rare! 6 years of undisturbed rest has resulted in a Tequila of amazing complexity, rich flavors, and exceptional depth. Each bottle is individually numbered and signed by Gran Tequilero, Antonio Salles, 2nd Generation Master Distiller.

El Tequileno Reposado Gran Reserva:
As a difference on their Reposado, this one is 8 months rested and blended w/ 15% Anejo.

Miami-based company Tropical Distillers is thrilled to announce they are opening the only distillery in the City of Miami towards the latter part of the year which will produce their J.F. Haden’s  Craft Liqueurs. Located in the heart of the up-and-coming, Allapattah neighborhood at 2141 NW 10th Avenue, the distillery will offer guests a one-of-a-kind premium liqueur brand experience just steps away from the famous Wynwood Arts District. The distillery will feature J.F. Haden’s Mango Liqueur, the first spirit to market from the Tropical Distillers brand portfolio launched a little over a year ago, a first-of-its-kind, small-batch liqueur made from all-natural home-grown Florida mangoes without preservatives, artificial colors, or flavors as well as the newest flavor J.F. Haden’s Citrus Liqueur.  

The distillery is a joint business venture between Tropical Distillers original brand partners CEO Buzzy Sklar, the newest brand partners, former NFL pros Mike and Maurkice Pouncey and Miami-based luxury realtor Kim Rodstein, and industry veteran Andrew Siegel. “This business endeavor has quickly turned into a family business that I am proud to be a part of. From ties to the Florida Gators to having the same work ethic,  enjoying the same passions has made us all closer than we could have imagined. The future is bright!” says  Mike Pouncey. 

J.F. Haden’s Craft Liqueur’s new headquarters will be much more than a fully functioning distillery. “With the  recent growth and buzz surrounding Miami as a new business hub, and my 30 plus years of experience in the  hospitality industry, we are very excited about the potential success and feel the timing is perfect to be  opening up the only distillery in the City of Miami,” says CEO Buzzy Sklar. The 8,000 square foot space will  include a fully automated craft distillery complete with an in-house cannery, a beautiful bar and tasting room  decked out in colorful vintage wallpaper with old school Florida tropical touches throughout the space. In  addition, the distillery will feature a retail and gift shop with branded merchandise and exclusive distillery only  product from Tropical Distillers and J.F. Haden’s Craft Liqueurs.  

image002The distillery will be open daily offering premium tastings and behind-the-scenes tours of the company’s  meticulous small batching production process. The one-hour tours will be available in group or private  sessions and will be able to be booked online. Following the tour, guests can indulge at the bar which will be  serving up signature J.F. Haden’s craft liqueurs cocktails while kicking back and enjoying live music from local  musicians on certain nights. Guests will also have the option to grab a bite from various featured food trucks.  

The Tropical Distillers premium brand experience is complete with a branded tour bus that will be available to  book for private events providing transportation to and from the distillery. When not being used for private  events, the bus will be cruising around Miami offering pick-ups to the distillery. In addition, the venue will be  available for private and corporate events and will have parking accessible on-site as well as street parking. 

Since the launch of J.F. Haden’s Mango Liqueur in January 2020 they have been picked up by national  distributors RNDC and is currently available in over 1,000 bars, restaurants, and retail stores across the country  (700 of those in Florida). In addition, J.F. Haden’s Mango Liqueur is now available in New York, New Jersey  and Nevada.

1600 NE 1st Ave, Miami, Fl. 33132

In Miami, 22400oz of Esotico’s twist on the Piña Colada, “The Sexy Colada”($14) is sold every month, using around 1400 Pineapples monthly between their kitchen and bar, according to Elis Carriero, Bar Manager at Esotico Tiki Lounge. “To improve a Pina Colada is not easy, because it is already a beautiful and delicious drink, but our twist is definitely the best sellers in the house! We use everything from the pineapple since our concept is zero waste. We use 1/2 pineapple in the kitchen for our pineapple rice, chunk for cocktails, and for the fresh juice, with the skin we can prepare infusions and we use the leaves for garnishes as well. Our secret for the Sexy Colada is to do everything with love and very high-quality ingredients,” says Elis.

The Sexy Colada is a recipe from Danielle Dallapolla with Coconut cream re’al, Ginger syrup re’al, Bacardi Carta Oro, Pineapple juice, Pinch of salt, Lime juice, Coconut water from fresh coconut
