Black Dove's Sacred Heart Tequila
Tequila so smooth and pure that it is rumored to be distilled from the tears of fallen angels. Sacred Heart is distilled from 100% blue agave in Jalisco, Mexico. Slow roasted and double distilled, then brought to proof with volcanic mineral rich water giving it a balance of simple complexity that makes Sacred Heart Blanco Tequila the perfect Tequila to drink straight, with soda, or in cocktails.
Inspired by Chavela Vargas, the street singer who took over Mexico City’s bohemian club scene by challenging mainstream morals by dressing in men’s clothing while singing ranchero songs intended for men to woo women with incredible passion. This tequila drinking, cigar smoking, rabble rouser sang at Elizabeth Taylor’s marriage to Mike Todd and ran off with Ava Gardner.
The Black Dove (Paloma Negra), became one of Chavela’s most famous songs. It is the dramatized telling of a young woman who goes out partying all night and breaks the heart of the singer.
