A Process Honoring Tradition
- Planting and Growing: The process starts with the birth of new plant shoots from the mother plant. These are carefully planted in a new field, where they grow and develop for 7-8 years, capturing the unique essence of the highlands' region.
- Cooking in Ancestral Masonry Ovens: The agave is honored with 30 hours of cooking in direct contact with steam and an additional 24 hours of slow cooling down and resting on the piña. This patient method ensures uniform cooking, imparting more complex aromas and flavors to the tequila.
- Milling and Fermentation: Once cooked, the agave is milled, releasing its rich juices. A slow fermentation process of 78 hours allows the mixture to reach the desired richness and complexity.
- Double Distillation: The distilled spirit is then crafted in stainless steel stills, a double distillation process that purifies and refines the tequila, preserving the unique characteristics of the agave.

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.
