Artet has become an integral part of my evening routine, as I take a break from alcohol. It’s relaxing effects are just what I need to switch from day to night, rounding out my edges and reminding me to let my shoulders down.

Pilgrim Soul’s name is inspired by a William Butler Yeats Poem the founder used to seduce his wife over 25 years ago in his effort to convince her that he loved more than just her beauty:

But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face.”

The line of tasty sparkling elixirs come in three different flavors (Apricot Lemon, Pineapple Ginger and Watermelon Lime) featuring powerful adaptogens for mood, immunity & vitality (things we all know we could use a boost of!!), making it one of the best gifts to give your sister to ensure she has a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!.

Los Arango Tequila
Created to honor José Doroteo Arango’s efforts during the Mexican Revolution, Los Arango Tequila is made with 100% blue agave with a maturation of at least 8 years. It is cooked in adobe ovens for up to 36 hours, allowing for sugar caramelization and a smooth finish, and fermented using a specially formulated yeast that helps enhance its fruity and herbal notes. Los Arango is double column distilled, which allows for exceptional retention of aroma and flavor, and aged in American oak barrels. This artisanal, premium tequila is still handcrafted and bottled by hand. To this day, we celebrate Los Arango as a true symbol of Mexico – A Revolutionary Spirit. Los Arango Tequila Blanco won a Double Gold Medal at the 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. An award-winning tequila is certainly one of the best gifts to give your sister this Christmas.
“Tequila is one of Mexico’s biggest assets — culturally and beyond,” says Ray Ramos, Director of Hacienda Corralejo. “Los Arango is produced at Hacienda Corralejo where for nearly 250 years, the distillation methods have been preserved, refined, and developed by our local community into a tradition of tequila. Los Arango was initially created to honor Jose Doroteo Arango, better known as Pancho Villa, for defending his people against the tyrants in the Mexican Revolution. Los Arango was born in his family name. Today, we continue to honor this triumphant moment in Mexican history with each glass of Los Arango – whether blanco for a specialty margarita, reposado over ice, or añejo sipped neat, we raise a glass to the moments in life that are worth savoring. In addition to the celebratory nature and cultural significance of Los Arango, it’s beautiful bottling makes it an excellent gift. Each is made of blown glass and hand finished with premium leather, metal, and wood accents, all onsite at the hacienda.”
