Have a shot at the new spirit with a Scottish twist

Scotland's seeming mission to have a hand in the full spectrum of spirits continues as the country's whisky, gin, vodka and rum production is joined by the first tequila with a Scottish connection. While no one's going to be growing agave cacti in these parts for the base spirit, owners of UWA Tequila, Michael Ballantyne and Ross Davidson, hit on the idea of letting their handmade, triple-distilled tequila – made in Tequila, Mexico – sit in selected Speyside whisky casks for seven or 14 months. The result is a smooth, complex spirit, able to be sipped, shot, slammed or mixed up. As tequila looks set to be the latest drinks trend, we'll certainly raise a glass to the new tipple on the Scots gantry.

UWA Tequila is out in Oct, with aged versions released Dec and early 2018.
