Tromba Tequila at Little Blood

It’s getting harder and harder to hide a bar in Melbourne. The laneways are the first place to look. Then you might scour the rooftops, followed by the basements. Even first-time tourists seem know where to find the most reclusive of venues.

So it’s interesting to see the new trend emerging of hiding a bar within… well, another bar. The Attic hides away within Black Pearl on Brunswick Street, much like Bar Ampere tucked away at the back of Gin Palace.

The other night I learned of another, Little Blood. This traditional Mexican bar has been open above the Kodiak Club in Fitzroy for sometime now, so admittedly I’m a little late to the party. I’d heard about their monthly tequila tasting event, run by the boys behind new Aussie owned cult brand Tromba Tequila.

It turns out tequila can be used as more than a handy substitute for disinfectant or eating worms. Tromba imports 100% blue agave tequila from the Jalisco region of Mexico. The regulations around the production of this type of tequila are similar those for champagne – it’s good stuff.

So the lads started importing the stuff to show Melburnians like myself that tequila can indeed be more nuanced than paint stripper. What they’ve come up with is a drink that is strong without being overpowering, with peppery notes that linger on the palate.

So next time you’re out looking to drink something a little different, why not take a punt on tequila? Just don’t eat the worm.

Tequila Tastings happen on the last Thursday of the month. For more info visit tomatequila.com.au.

It almost sounds like the premise of a reality TV show: pile a bunch of artists in a bus for seven days, send them across Mexico and see what happens.
