Spirits for the Holidays

To get into the Holiday spirit, what can be better than exploring new, high-end, premium spirits: an ultra premium vodka from Italy, and a tequila from the village of Amatitan in the heart of Blue Agave country in Mexico

Roberto Cavalli vodka, Italy ($60)
Roberto Cavalli Vodka is the latest addition to the Cavalli lifestyle brand. Renowned Italian fashion designer Roberto Cavalli, a favorite among Hollywood’s A-listers for his sensual designs, owns two Just Cavalli Cafés in Milan and the Café Giacosa in Florence, which also features Cavalli’s line of handmade chocolates. “I have always had a passion for entertaining – it’s something I really enjoy, so this latest creation felt very natural to me,” says Mr. Cavalli. “ This vodka is clear, captivating and brilliant – like the women that inspire me.” Roberto Cavalli Vodka is handcrafted from fine Italian grains from southwestern Alps. The liquid is filtered through layers of crushed Italian marble before it is bottled in a sexy Roberto Cavalli-designed bottle reflecting his signature style with the image of a serpent wrapped around the opaque glass bottle. The taste is smooth and elegant, ideal for serving straight, on the rocks or in a martini.

Tequila Partida Blanco, Mexico $ 60
The superpremium Partida Tequila, produced by the Partida Family of Amatitan, Mexico, is estate-grown and made from 100-percent blue agave. The Partida Family owns both the land where the agave is grown and harvested, and the fabricas where it is cooked, distilled and bottled. Amatitan is a 500-year old village, population 7,000, which hosts every Februrary a festival celebrating Tequila. The taste is straightforward, unadorned, and redolent of blue agave, clean and crisp with a finish that lingers gently on the palate. It is great on the rocks or in margaritas.
