Tasting Notes -A streamlined cream liqueur with a purring engine of cocoa, powered by sleek notes of nutmeg and cinnamon. The tequila base is the fuel, but at 30 proof, it’s a smooth ride. 91 —Meridith May
In a market saturated with thousands of spirits, it’s often difficult to have a product that stands out from the rest. However, Jeff Johnson, founder and CEO of Northstar Wine and Spirits, has created a product ready to do just that. Using the popular Mexican dessert of deep-fried ice cream as an inspiration, Johnson created Vespertino Tequila Cream Liqueur—named after the Spanish word for evening. The 30-proof, shelf-stable spirit is made with tequila and a cream base and was created in partnership with Creamy Creation, a beverage development company based in Upstate New York.
