After 75 years of distilling in Arandas and sales across Mexico, the venerable Tapatio Tequila is now available in the US. YES - it's the same Tequila Tapatio you met & loved in Mexico! Distiller Carlos Camarena has developed cult like status with Tequila lovers with the quality and integrity of his hard to obtain Tapatio brand. It stands alone with its pure classic flavor profile of 100% Blue Agave Tequila from the highlands.
100% Estate grown Blue Agave. The Agave are hand selected by Jimadores and delivered fresh to the distillery where they are hand cut and placed in the oven. The Blue Agave are slowly baked for four days to transform the raw material into sweet fructose sugar. Once baked, the Blue Agaves are crushed and pressed in a modified sugar cane mill to extract the sweet agave juice ("Mosto") which is then ready for fermentation. A selected fraction of freshly made "Mosto" is pumped into small wood fermenters to slowly ferment using a special in-house 75 year old yeast culture. Once the "Mosto" ferments into dry "Mosto Muerto" it is ready to be distilled. Distilled in small 90-250 gallon Copper Alambiques Tequilano Pot Stills. Barely filtered to preserve mouth feel, texture and viscosity of the estate grown Blue Agave. Aged in stainless steel for 6 months.
