Embark on a tequila journey like no other with the long-awaited SPHYNX Tequila, brought to you by Sukhvinder and Imran Javeed. This power couple has immersed themselves in the heartland of tequila production in Mexico, rediscovering the authentic ways of enjoying this spirit and crafting a remarkably smooth tequila that surpasses all expectations. SPHYNX Tequila sets a new standard for true tequila connoisseurs, exuding sophistication in every drop.
The exquisite SPHYNX Tequila range consists of four exceptional expressions: the Blanco Tequila, Añejo Tequila, Añejo Cristalino, and Extra Aged Añejo Black Oak. Each expression is meticulously hand-crafted, delivering an unparalleled tasting experience meant to be savoured and shared in the company of good friends.
The inspiration behind the name ‘SPHYNX Tequila’ stems from the couple’s beloved Sphynx cat, adoringly named ‘Tequila.’ The cat’s enchanting charm led them to design a captivating decanter in the shape of a Sphynx cat, becoming the hallmark of their tequila brand.
Encased in a handcrafted decanter made from 100% recycled glass, it represents a timeless piece of art. The tequila it holds is best appreciated by sipping it over ice, surrounded by great company. To achieve this remarkable taste, Sukhvinder and Imran collaborated with a distinguished distillery in the lowlands of Jalisco, Mexico. This partnership ensured that the tequila was crafted using traditional techniques and aged in wine barrels, resulting in a smoother and more delicate sipping experience.
Respecting the authenticity of Tequila and its rich Mexican heritage was of utmost importance to the couple. Sukhvinder expressed her dedication to preserving the legacy of Tequila even as they ventured far from home. Imran added that their commitment to authenticity stems from a desire to honour the time-honoured ways of producing tequila – meant to be savoured in small portions alongside delightful food.
SPHYNX Tequila takes pride in using 100% Blue Weber Agave and contains no additives, reflecting their dedication to quality and authenticity. The brand encourages enthusiasts to savour their tequila neat, allowing its intricate nuances to captivate and create unforgettable moments.
