Terralta Tequila - the fourth brand project from Felipe Camarena and his two sons, Alan and Luis. The brand is known for its exceptional quality, unique flavor profile, and commitment to traditional production methods and sustainable practices.
Another difference at El Pandillo is Felipe’s water use during production. He is the first to capture rainwater in his distillery to create unique flavor profiles in his tequilas.
Terralta tequilas are made from 100% blue Weber agave, grown in the highlands of Jalisco, which are known for producing agave with a sweeter, fruitier flavor than agave grown in the lowlands. The tequila is distilled in copper pot stills and aged in American oak barrels to give it a rich, complex flavor.
The unique flavor profile of Terralta tequila is due in part to the use of traditional production methods, such as using a tahona (a large stone wheel) to crush the cooked agave and fermenting the juice in wooden vats. These methods give the tequila a distinctive character and a depth of flavor that is not found in tequilas produced using modern industrial methods.
Terralta tequila is available in several different varieties, including Blanco (unaged), Reposado (aged for 6-8 months), and Añejo (aged for 18-20 months). Each variety has its own unique flavor profile and is designed to be enjoyed in different ways. The Blanco is perfect for mixing in cocktails, while the Reposado and Añejo are best enjoyed neat or on the rocks.
In addition to its exceptional quality and unique flavor profile, Terralta tequila is also committed to sustainable production practices. The company uses organic practices in its agave fields, recycles water and organic waste, and uses solar energy to power its operations.
Overall, Terralta tequila is a premium brand of tequila that is known for its exceptional quality, unique flavor profile, and commitment to traditional production methods and sustainable practices.
Terralta Tequila is produced at the popular and prestigious Los Altos (highland) distillery of Destileria el Pandillo- NOM 1579, home of G4. Felipe Camarena has, without a doubt, done it again and possibly has outdone himself with Terralta.
