La Caravedo Torontel is made from the torontel grape, which is an aromatic varietal that evolved on the Peruvian coast and provides a strong floral bouquet and velvety texture.
La Caravedo Torontel brings bright, delicate flavors, rich texture, and a heady aromatic experience to a cocktail. It is distilled in Hacienda La Caravedo's original falca stills, and there are 8 pounds of grapes in every bottle.
"We are honored to be recognized by the 2016 SF World Spirits Competition and to share the heritage of our native spirit and the tradition of Hacienda La Caravedo. La Caravedo Torontel's versatility and notes of rose, gardenia, and violet bring a unique and exciting flavor to any cocktail," says Master Distiller Johnny Schuler.
La Caravedo Torontel is currently available throughout all U.S. markets with a suggested retail price of $32.99/750ml.
