World's Best Classic Cocktail Winner - World Drinks Awards 2021
A Tommy's Margarita - for the uninitiated - is different from a classic Margarita. The classic Margarita has a wildly varied anecdotal origin story, and we'll talk about that another day, but the Tommy's Margarita history is as clear as ice cold tequila, lime, and agave in a perfectly chilled glass.
Tommy's Mexican Restaurant (San Francisco) has been around for 55 years - that's pretty wild in itself! Tomas and Elmy Bermejo first opened the restaurant in 1965 where they served (and the site continues to serve) dishes from their native Yucatan. Their son Julio is the Beverage Manager who in the eighties decided to stop pouring mixto tequila (tequila made from less than 51% blue agave) - almost 40 years ago, well before tequila was cool. He went on to create Tommy's Blue Agave Club, a tequila tasting club which has over 7,000 members (as CNN would call it "the ground zero of the tequila revolution".) However, and most importantly, Julio created the Tommy's Margarita. Tequila, Lime Juice, Agave Syrup - that's it! Each element tempers and accentuates the complimentary notes of the other to create an elegantly balanced, inspired, and delectable cocktail that is one of the staples of modern mixology. It was the first venue specific cocktail to be included in the IBA (International Bartenders Association) manual.
So why did we make a Tommy's? We've set out from the start to make world class cocktails, that means using world class ingredients. More often than not, world class spirits don't need fanfare, they just deserve a stage, and that's what a Tommy's Margarita does. A Tommy's heroes agave, it champions the provenance and character of the constituent ingredients, and when we started working with Tequila Tromba we knew that this peerlessly produced spirit deserved the perfect cocktail for you to consume it in, and now, here it is.
Tequila Tromba is a peerless highland tequila produced by Marco Cedano (formerly a master distiller at Don Julio) out of Jalisco Mexico. In collaboration with his founding partners Nick Reid, James Sherry, Eric Brass, and son Rodrigo, Tromba have produced a tequila that we couldn't go past when we decided to produce our world class Tommy's Margarita. Tromba refers to the intense thunderstorms and wild downpours that soak the countryside of Mexico - we believe that the wild nature of that landscape has really come through in the agave notes of our Margarita, which is so elegantly married by the crisp, acid sweet profile of the (Australian) central coast limes we have sourced, all of which is balanced to perfection by locally prepared agave syrup.
This Margarita is a drink that shears through the divide of classic cocktails and modern drinking, it is neither pretentious nor facile, it is - put simply - a Curatif.
