Santaleza Blanco Tequila is made from 100 percent all-natural, fully matured Blue Weber agave artisanally produced without additives or diffusers.
The ancestral distillation process blends a 135-year-old tahona passed down in the family with an innovative mechanical donkey named Pepe, the masonry roasted agave is crushed by the tahona and then moved to local Roble wood vats filled with mountain spring water straight from the distillery’s grounds and left to ferment in an all-natural open-air process. The spirit is twice distilled in copper stills and left to rest until the flavor reaches perfection. The rested spirit is then hand bottled or added to ex-bourbon barrels, which will mature for a minimum of four months.
Appearance: Light straw
Aroma: Prominent agave up front followed by the aroma of the oak and vanilla influenced by the ex-bourbon barrels which is chased by baking spices and citrus
Palate: The legs on the glass get your palate ready for the buttery softness that will coat your mouth, followed by complex layers of agave, vanilla, terroir and leather. A long-lasting, smooth, creamy finish of sweet agave, baking spices and white pepper that calls you back for more.
