Rated 93-Wine Enthusiast 7/99
The hand-blown worm bottle may strike some as little more than a conversation piece, but to tequila enthusiasts, the spirit inside is something of a find. Casta Gusano Real Reposado (Royal Worm) is an elegant 100-percent agave tequila distilled in Guadalajara at Tequilera Newton e Hijos. It recently won a gold medal as the best reposado tequila at the 1998 World Spirits Championships.
The Casta Gusano Real Reposado is aged just short of a year in new white oak casks. The tequila has a lush, medium body and is unusually aromatic for a reposado. The fresh barrels imbue the tequila with a pronounced woody, oaky character, as well as a palate rich with the flavors of sweet spice, citrus fruit and ground black pepper.
The bottle is crafted in Mexico, requiring eight workers 15 minutes to fabricate a single, worm-shaped bottle. Where the worm gets its two front legs has not been determined.
- Due to small size differences in the neck of the bottle and the cork stopper,
this and all Casta Tequila products are prone to seepage during shipment. We will make every attempt to
ship the product such that it will not leak during transit but we are not able to honor any
claims for leaking bottles. By placing an order for this product, you are confirming that you have read and agree to these terms. Please be aware that this is a hand-blown glass item. Each bottle is unique, and sizes vary. Bottles are filled to 750ml. The liquid will not typically reach the top of the bottle.
