Tequila General Gorostieta - General Enrique Gorostieta is a premium tequila brand that pays tribute to the legendary leader of the Cristero movement in post-revolutionary Mexico in the 1920s. The brand takes pride in its heritage and the impeccable arms career of its namesake, who was known for his extraordinary infantry strategies and shrewdness.
The brand's agave is sourced from the Los Altos region on the northern side of Jalisco, where it grows for six to seven years at an altitude of more than 2000 meters above sea level. The agave is tended to with care and at ideal temperatures, ensuring a lush plant with fruity notes and abundant sugars over the years.
Each agave is carefully selected, handpicked, and tested for sugar levels right on the fields, to guarantee that only the best quality ingredients are used in the production of their tequila. The Jima, or the cut of the agave, is made one inch from the piña, or the plant's core, to ensure the herbal presence, aroma, and notes of wet soil that provide the characteristic raw agave taste of Tequila Blanco (Silver Tequila).
Overall, General Enrique Gorostieta is a brand that combines tradition, quality, and heritage to produce a tequila that pays tribute to one of Mexico's most iconic figures.
