The Day of The Dead (Dia de los Muertos) & Satryna Tequila

Satryna Cristalino tequila is Perifly’s exclusive and exciting new offering.

Taste aside, the stand out feature – Satryna’s rose gold skull capped bottle is inspired by the iconic Dia de los Muertos, better known as the Day of the dead.  Celebrated every year on November 1st and 2nd. Life meets death in this festival of memories and joy. Mexican in origin, today Dia de Los Muertos is widely observed in Latin America and Latino communities worldwide.

The star which is Satryna Cristalino made from the finest Weber Agave from the fields in Guadalajara and perfected by 3 generations of craftsmanship and more than 70 years of experience, straddles both taste and aesthetics and most certainly deserves a prize place at your bar.

Gatherings at cemeteries, creating alters (ofrendas), laying out marigold floral arrangements, creating edible skulls (calaveros) made of sugar, eating a specially prepared bread (pan de Muerto) and decorating little skeletons are all part of the traditions associated with Dia de los Muertos.

The calaveros or skull has become one of the most recognisable cultural and artistic elements of the day of the dead festivities. They are ubiquitous during the day of the dead, taking many forms such as sugar, candles, clay decorations and most memorable face paintings. Each skull represents a departed loved one, and while the most recognisable aspects of the day might be the skulls and elaborately adorned skeletons – the tradition that holds the most meaning is the ofrenda or offering and is really what the whole celebration is about, a collection of offerings dedicated to the person being honoured.

So whilst looking back remembering the departed and honouring our heritage, it’s equally important to look forward, celebrate life and all the good things that go with it. Focus on the here and the now. There’s nothing like today to open a bottle of Satryna, best enjoyed with good friends and family, shoot it, stir it or sip it…..the choice is entirely yours.
