Staff Pick Notes

Made by third generation producers without the use of chemical fertilizers, yeasts or pesticides, where each bottling is made from plants taken from single growing sites, hand-harvesting, traditional fermentation processes and always terroir driven: sound like the biodynamic wine you’ve been drinking from the Loire? Make no mistake, that is the score on this tequila and it’s one of the best you could get.The high altitude growing sites for this tequila provides a much slower ripening process for the plants allowing the jimadors to harvest at the optimal 8-10 year age period resulting in small yields of extremely high quality concentrated agave plants. Floral, tropical, and spicy aromas, sweet agave nectar, minerals, and spice on the palate with a lingering mouth-watering finish. Check your vintages and notice bottle variation.
