At Tequila Gran Padre we want to give you a product showcasting the best that Mexico has to offer, highlighting our handcrafted process, giving special attention to each of its stages of production starting from caring for the land, planting the young agave as naturally as possible.
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. This process can be prolonged depending on the climate, but we consider that a natural process, without the help of chemicals, is better to offer a higher quality product.
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 from being present and we obtain the Blanco Tequila or it is aged in white oak barrels where they can spend 4 to 24 months depending on whether it will be a Reposado Tequila or an Añejo Tequila.
We seek that each of the stages of the process is continuously supervised to provide a unique product, with exquisite flavor and maximum quality.
We believe that attention to detail is where the difference is.
