    Codigo is currently my favorite tequila. Been sipping it neat for the past 18+ months. Almost too good for ranch water.

    That's a great buy, I would have done the same thing. I don't know much about tequila, but Casamigos is really really good. I'd be interested to try some other more economical brands with solid reviews as well. But Casamigos is the standard for us currently. The hangover has been almost non-existent with moderate to even high consumption levels.

    Casa Noble and Olmeca Altos Plata are two other ones I like. The latter can be found for cheap, so would probably make a great tequila for ranch water.

    I am going to start this by saying I’m not a tequila snob. Like mezcal and also Casamigos so picked up a bottle of that and enjoyed it. Looked up the bottle and the reviews were hilarious how much the tequila people hated it

    Now we got a stew going. I’m going to pick up the Casamigos blanco for the weekend. Will circle back to touch some of the other recs. Have been very interested in mezcal as well.

    Yes, there's also a limited supply of cans. Constellation is the beverage group that produces, Tecate, Dos Equis, Corona, Modelo and others.

    "Constellation has started to put distributors on allocation for certain packages, and retailers have communicated concern over shortages, as the Mexican government has deemed beer production inessential per shutdowns aimed at curbing COVID-19. The Mexican government has said that only municipalities with zero cases would be able to reopen businesses around May 17th/18th."

    Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador also said business can only resume in municipalities with “no COVID-19 cases,” and “STZ’s state has 534 and municipality has >22 cases.” MKM also noted that “can package availability is tight.”

    On Wednesday, we reported a note that HUSA sales chief Jim Sloan sent distributors, basically telling them to brace for shortages in their Mexican portfolio.

    “As inventory levels of individual SKUs at your HUSA Demand point fluctuate, certain SKUs may not be available for ordering at certain times,” it said. “Therefore, if you do not see a SKU available for ordering within the StarLink portal, that means that it is currently unavailable for you to order at this time.”

    Apparently, he meant it.

    Already we’ve heard from a few distributors who were unable to order key packages last week, including Dos Equis 12 and 6 pack bottles, Dos 7 oz. 4 and 6 pack bottles, and Tecate Light 7 oz. bottles.

    Another distributor describes a situation where his orders have actually been stuck in the queue for months.

    They ordered in February for April shipment, but April never made it. “Additionally, my May order won’t either, thus, I’m out of stock on all Dos Equis, Tecate, and Tecate Light,” per source.

    The orders read as “open” in the portal, still. “I’m told when they ramp up they’ll send orders on a first-come, first-served basis,” per source.

    To be clear, we’ve also spoken to some distributors in less major Dos markets, who don’t seem to be having widespread problems.

    HUSA SPEAKS. We asked HUSA about how widespread these shortages are, and how long they might last.

    “As the situation is ever-changing, HUSA continues to monitor inventory of core SKUs for our Mexican brands based on the inventory available at each of our Demand Points. This means inventory levels of individual SKUs at different Demand Points will continue to fluctuate, and at certain moments in time, it may not be possible for some distributors to order certain SKUs.

    “HEINEKEN USA is working around the clock to assess distributor’s open orders as we manage our inventory levels to ensure consumers won’t miss out on their favorite beers. We will continue to work hand-in-hand with HEINEKEN Mexico and our distributor partners while we navigate through these unprecedented times.”

    MKM DOWNGRADES STZ, BELIEVING THAT MEXICAN OUT OF STOCKS WILL INCREASE THROUGH JUNE

    Constellation finally has a “sell” rating from an analyst. MKM downgraded the stock on Friday, contemplating significant Mexican brand out of stocks this summer.

    As BBD readers know, Constellation has started to put distributors on allocation for certain packages, and retailers have communicated concern over shortages, as the Mexican government has deemed beer production inessential per shutdowns aimed at curbing COVID-19. The Mexican government has said that only municipalities with zero cases would be able to reopen businesses around May 17th/18th.

    But “regardless of decisions made by Mexico, the breadth of STZ U.S. out-of-stocks will increase through the end of June,” says MKM.

    Based on MKM’s own internal best guess about the time it takes Constellation to brew and ship “many” of their beers from Mexico to the U.S., the very best case scenario means “May 18th increased production begins resolving out-of-stock issue by June 27th.”

    But they think it unlikely that the brewer will be able to increase production on the 18th, noting a few reasons, including the fact that “Mexico already pushed the date once.” Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador also said business can only resume in municipalities with “no COVID-19 cases,” and “STZ’s state has 534 and municipality has >22 cases.” MKM also noted that “can package availability is tight.”

    Bottom line: “If STZ can’t increase production by mid-May, July could feature wide out-stocks.”

    Amid all this, distributor sources are still telling BBD that things are tight. Said one, late last week: They are “at least trying”… May orders were condensed to primarily bulk packages “(Modelo 12’s, Corona 12’s and 18’s),” so the company is “doing what they can to at least get us whatever is left at the DC.” But that will likely “put us out of odds and ends items like the Refresca’s, Chelada’s etc. …We might make it on Corona IF we can get early June shipments.”

    Registering another vote for Espolon. Easily my favorite of the mid-priced tequilas. I make my ranchwaters with their reposado. Camarena and Cazadores are acceptable if Espolon is unavailable.

    As to the higher end tequilas, Clase Azul reigns supreme IMO. Casamigos is excellent. Also check out El Tesoro if you can find it. They make a truly wonderful reposado.
