Hiatus Tequila is an award-winning tequila that offers a vacation-in-a-bottle by encouraging New Yorkers to take a break aka ‘Hiatus’ while enjoying their beverage. The brand uses a ground-to-glass method to create the purest tequila south-of-the-border. Founder Kristopher DeSoto used his passion and dream to bring a true ‘taste’ of Mexico to the United States. DeSoto was raised in Texas and was introduced to tequila early on. From that time, he noticed that tequilas south of the border were often different from those found on U.S. shelves, the flavors and aromas more robust and expressive. Since then, he has traveled throughout Mexico and spent over 7 years living there and decided that such a tequila—true tequila—should be available in the United States. Hiatus Tequila comes in three expressions— Blanco, Reposado and Anejo and is available on their site or Drizly.
