Given Tequila Liqueur

given_liqueur_bottle.pngWe just found out about Given, a tequila-based liqueur produced in the Cognac region of France. According to the email we got, Given combines:

premium agave tequila from Jalisco, Mexico and once in France we incorporate some of the wine and cognac producing techniques to the tequila, even using grapes in the infusion process to create a smooth, refreshing liqueur that is not as sweet and thick as a typical liqueur and and as strong as a typical tequila.
Sounds interesting to us.

Even more interestingly, the email states that since it has properties of both a liqueur and a regular distilled spirit, they've coined the phrase "spi-queur." We're not sure how things are done in France, but to us that sounds more like a racial epithet than something we'd order in a bar. Hey - who are we to judge? Maybe that IS the way things are done in France.

I quite desperately want to try this...but as far as I can tell online, there's only two ways to get it. From one of two locations in New York City, or online via mass-ordering. =( Please tell me there's a way to get this to lil' ol' Michigan!!

A French tequila made in cognac called Given, not to be confused with a French gin made out of cognac grapes called G'vine.
