Blue Nectar Tequila – Blue Nectar Tequila was founded by a father and son duo with a mutual love for Mexican culture. When asked separately, both BN and Nikhil Bahadur are quick to say that their favorite Blue Nectar Tequila is the Reposado ($44.99), which is a unique blend of reposado and even older extra añejo tequilas: just like a family, the older “generation” mellows and smooths the younger. Beautifully packaged, this new super premium Reposado has a full agave flavor highlighted by a light oak wood character. In the Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2014, the Reposado came out on top with a score of 94 and the Chairman’s Trophy. Blue Nectar Tequila
