It was today in 1941 that Japanese forces attacked the US naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, killing more than two thousand Americans and wiping out the bulk of America’s naval power in the Pacific.

Although the US had long been planning for the possibility of war with Japan, no warning of the attack was given, and a traumatised nation was catapulted into global conflict - including, once Hitler declared war on America, the war in Europe. Pearl Harbor was a turning point in world history. We are commemorating it with La Perla, a wonderful tequila blend whose name means, simply, "the pearl".
