Vodquila – The new wave in Hybrid drinking?

Vodquila Vodka Tequila

It sounds lethal but could Vodquila be the best thing since sliced bread? Yep you heard right premium grain Vodka, distilled 6 times and 100% pure blue agave Tequila blended together and presented to you in a fabulously alluring bottle. The smooth, clear spirit brings forth notes of agave, menthol and spice.

The idea of American father and daughter team Chander and Nina Arora, the vision came about one evening when mixing cocktails at home and Nina asked her father why he never tried to combine his two favourite drinks. And hey presto the lovely tasting Vodquila was born, and it is now making itself clearly known in the drinks industry by winning a silver medal at the International Wine and Spirit Competition – one of the oldest and most prestigious competitions in the world.

Perfect served on it’s own over ice with a dash of lime or a base for a range of cocktails.

2. Tequila as a natural Colon Cleanser

Once again that magical plant the blue agave is proving it worth, this time as a natural drug transporter. When treating diseases such as IBS, Crohn disease and colon cancer one of the many challenges that doctor’s face is how to get the drugs past the stomach as most are quickly destroyed by the stomach acids. This is where those fructans come into their own again as they can resist destruction in the stomach and let lifesaving drugs pass through unharmed.

1. It can help to lower blood sugar and help you lose weight!!

What!!! I hear you cry… The Agave plant that is used to produce Tequila has a natural occurring sugar in it called Agavins – these agavins reduce glucose levels and increase insulin.
