The roots of Hiatus Tequila come from one of the co-founders - Adam Fagan - who is a resident of Sarasota! So it is as “local” as a Tequila can be, since obviously Tequila can only be made in Mexico, which theirs of course is.
Flawlessly clear in the glass, Hiatus Blanco is bursting with aromas of roasted agave, fresh-cut grass, and tropical fruit. On the palate, it’s clean and complex with a luxurious mouthfeel, ideal for sipping neat or in a craft cocktail like this one!
One of the things that sets Hiatus apart from the majority of other Tequilas is the hands on, traditional methods they use to make their unique spirit. Their hand-picked agave is only of the highest quality - one the reasons they won the Gold Medal at the 2019 World Wine & Spirits Competition in San Fransisco.
Founded on April 27, 1987, the celebrated Michael’s On East restaurant takes fine dining to another level, offering award-winning cuisine and outstanding service, in an exceptional 1940s supper club atmosphere. Michael’s On East was one of only ten restaurants in the nation to be inducted into the 2009 Nation’s Restaurant News Fine Dining Hall of Fame, considered the Oscars of the restaurant industry, and received their 31st consecutive AAA Four-Diamond Award in 2020. In February 2012, U.S. Airways Magazine selected Michael’s On East as an East Coast Icon, in good company with the ‘21’ Club in New York City.
Now a part of Sarasota’s history, partners Michael Klauber and Phil Mancini have built their unmatched reputation for exceptional service and inspired cuisine on the principle that “each guest should be treated the way they expect to be treated,” every moment of each and every visit. The Sarasota culinary duo have been recognized regionally and internationally for their dedication in helping more than 500 nonprofit organizations throughout Sarasota and Manatee Counties, and giving back more than one million dollars through in-kind donations, contributions and partnerships.
