The search for liquid gold along the tequila route
We embarked our plane and got right into the heart of the tequila region around Guadalajara. During our adventurous road trip we visited endless haciendas from the highlands to the lowlands of Tequila City - with only one mission in mind - to find the smoothest and yet most characteristic tequila, which feels gentle when you drink it, rather than razor blades in your throat. We never thought it would‘ve been possible to differentiate the flavours, the produce, which kind of high- or lowland agaves were used. But after having tasted nearly 70 tequilas a day for weeks, it turned out that we could.
A true family business & the tequilas
Anyway... we fell in love with a tiny three generation heritage distillery just outside the old town of Tequila that only produces 100% Blue Weber Agave tequilas. Due to their unique quality, you can enjoy them neat or on the rocks. Most of our tequilas owe their complexity to the maturation in red wine barrels (instead of ex-bourbon barrels which are common in tequila production). The little distillery has so far concentrated on supplying the domestic market only.
