The customization of this menu also extends to the liquid section. Both the chef and the head of the room will recommend to the diners which drinks pair best with the dishes that are coming out of the kitchen. One of the most interesting novelties on the menu is the crystalline tequila, a trend that has recently arrived from Mexico and is conquering the palates of national drinkers. In addition to its flavor, its totally transparent color is surprising, the result of subjecting traditional tequila —reposado, añejo or extrañejo— to filtration with fine crystals of activated carbonwhich eliminates the darker tones of these aged tequilas to turn them into exquisite distillates with all the complexity of a full-bodied tequila, although with a creamier, smoother and cleaner palate, like that of whites, and with its same color.

Fruit of the union of aged and foreign tequilas, after filtering it maintains all its character, although with less presence of the notes arising from barrel aging. On the nose, its aromas of tobacco, nuts, chocolate, vanilla and cooked agave stand out. They also have another exquisite brand, 1800, whose crystalline is the result of purifying their best blue agave aged tequila, which ages in American and French oak barrels and, later, in port wine barrels. The result is a distillate of exceptional quality, perfect to pair with all kinds of dishes or to enjoy after dinner.
