Buen Vato at the Roma Bar Show

Ciao! A memory of wonderful days, meeting new friends who share our interest in sustainability at the Roma Bar Show, the Italian event dedicated exclusively to the beverage industry and the world of mixology.

With the Palazzo Dei Congressi as a backstage, from 29 to 30 May we were in the Mexican Village presenting our great flavor to the visitors, sharing the philosophy of our brand, and talking about sustainability with our speech on carbon emissions in the industry and the challenge that will revolutionize the industry.


Gold medal at the SIP Awards!

The public has chosen us! Buen Vato obtained Gold Medal in this competition where consumers judge spirits, unaffected by industry bias. “This pragmatic and refreshing model of evaluation provides an honest stage for feedback and recognition where top brands showcase their achievements”, SIP Awards.

The qualification of the products is carried out in a completely blind tasting, where consumers value the spirits’ aroma, taste, and finish. So, we are very happy that consumers have preferred the aroma and flavor of Buen Vato to award it gold among mixed tequilas.

Buen Vato is a tequila that values taste and sustainability with the same reverence. We work on improving in each stage of our process in order to reduce our carbon emissions, but also to offer quality and a great flavor and experience to our consumers.

IWSC gold for Buen Vato

With 96 points, our tequila won a gold medal at the International World Spirit Competition.

120 of the world’s leading spirits experts tasted and judged 4,100 entries from 98 countries, so we are very proud that our flavor has been recognized, awarded, and described as: “Beautifully floral, bursting with sweet grassy aromas and delightful savoury tones. Seductively viscous, the palate reveals notes of toasted corn and a whisp of smoke, paving the way to an elegant finish, with a lingering citrus zing. Superb!”

According to the IWSC, this is more than a competition, “It is a global wine and spirits community, focused on people and expertise”, with the mission to champion the best wine and spirits from around the world. In the competition, the IWSC recognizes Tequila as a popular category that grew during the pandemic, with people’s interest in enjoying it at home, and its versatility in terms of flavors and cocktail recipes.

This result motivates us to continue working on our product and our entire sustainability project behind the brand.

4,5 stars: Difford´s guide

Buen Vato values taste and sustainability with the same reverence, and the 4,5 stars over 5 that Difford´s Guide gave to this Tequila Blanco is proof of this.

This global authority on drinking culture highlighted the raw material and process of Buen Vato, as a tequila made of agave harvested in the Valley of Tequila, cultivated without herbicides and pesticides by a 5th generation tequila maker family, cooked in an autoclave (pressure cooker), slowly fermented without any accelerator and distilled in stainless steel pot stills.

Difford´s guide also described the reason because Tequila Buen Vato is not 100% agave, mainly that to minimize the environmental impact, Buen Vato is bulk shipped in tanks at 55% alc./ vol. and it is bottled in Europe using paperboard bottles.

“Although this tequila cannot claim to be “100% agave” it still stands up well when compared to many tequilas that are. And with its sustainable credentials, Buen Vato is an attractive well preposition for bars”, Difford´s guide.
