Three Agaves Pure Karoo Agave Spirit is expertly crafted from individually selected, hand-harvested wild Agave grown under the Karoo sun. Before tequila gained popularity in South Africa, Agave was used as ballast on Portuguese ships until Agave Pinas washed up on the shores of Eastern Cape's wild cost.
Agave then became widely known as "a gift of the gods" when ships were wrecked. By 1898 the Murrays at Roode Bloem farm had a plantation of their own Agave. Large plantations were further established all around the Karoo in years that followed, mostly during the Ostrich Feather boom in the early 1900s and the Wool boom which followed the second world war. Due to a geographical trademark they cannot refer to their product as "Tequila", hence the use of "Agave Spirit".
Agave is used for a variety of ingenious uses including fodder and drought reserve. You will get a chance to taste this impressive Agave Spirit during the International Tequila Festival '19 taking place in Cape Town between 1 - 3 November happening at the historic Hamilton Rugby Stadium. You will also be able to buy the Three Agaves after #ITF19 at the trendy Nomad Bistro & Bar in Cape Town CBD.
