We pride on making high quality tequila
How do we get the best tequila?
When the ripe agave arrives at the distillery, the masonry oven is prepared, in which it will spend 36 hours slowly cooking to keep the agave juicy and obtain its caramel notes.
Once the agave is cooked, it goes to the riping and to the press, where all the juices will get extracted and then go directly to the fermentation tanks, where they will spend at least 4 days fermenting naturally.
When it is ready, we move on to the distillation tower, where we can regulate the level of higher alcohols more accurately and result in a softer tequila.
At the end of the distillation, the product can go through 2 different processes, it can go directly to the packaging where it is filtered to prevent any solid remains of the agave
