ArteNOM Selección 1414 Reposado 750ML
ArteNOM Selección 1414 Reposado 750ML - Destileria El Ranchito has been owned by Feliciano Vivanco since the post-revolutionary period of 1919-1929. They hold 2,000 acres of estate-grown agave and distill everything in traditional pot stills. However, their fermentation process makes them unique - their yeast and climate create a bready banana nut aroma and flavor.
- It is made from 100% Blue Weber Agave and aged for 10 months in American white oak bourbon barrels.
- Color: very pale straw
- Some say the tequila has notes of green banana, orange-blossom honey, nutmeg, and citrus peel. Others say it smells and tastes like a fresh baked sugar cookie.
- Palate: salted vanilla cookie, allspice, mild chile heat.
Master Distiller: Sergio Cruz
The Vivanco family began cultivating highland agave during Mexico's tumultuous post-revolutionary period of 1919-1929. In Don Feliciano Vivanco's hometown of Arandas, Jalisco, subsequent generations of Vivancos have remained devoted to expanding the family's agave plantations. In 1994, the family's dream of acquiring their distillery was finally realized with the purchase of Destilería El Ranchito.
With approximately 2,000 acres of estate-grown agave at their disposal, Sergio & José Manuél Vivanco have become renowned for producing rich, well-balanced tequilas. For ArteNOM Selección de 1414, the family brings back their unique and extraordinary tradition of fermenting the agave mash with field-extracted wild yeast for an unparalleled display of agave terroir.

What is the difference between Tequila & Mezcal?
Tequila is a type of mezcal, much like how scotch and bourbon are types of whiskey.
Tequila and mezcal are both types of agave-based spirits that are popular in Mexico, but there are some key differences between the two. Tequila is made exclusively from the blue agave plant, which is primarily grown in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, about 40 miles northwest of Guadalajara. Mezcal, on the other hand, can be made from any type of agave plant, and is often made using traditional, labor-intensive methods.
One of the most noticeable differences between tequila and mezcal is their flavor. Tequila is typically smooth and subtle, with hints of fruit and spices, while mezcal has a more complex, smoky flavor that comes from the roasting of the agave hearts before they are fermented and distilled.
Another difference between the two spirits is their production process. Tequila is typically made using modern industrial methods, while mezcal is often produced using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. This can give mezcal a more authentic, artisanal character.
In general, tequila is considered to be a more refined and sophisticated spirit, while mezcal is often viewed as a more rustic and traditional drink. Both are popular in Mexico and are enjoyed around the world, so the best way to decide which one you like is to try them both and see which one suits your tastes.
