About 512 Tequila
While the brand owners of Tequila 512 are based in Austin, Texas – hence the 512 area code in the name – Tequila 512 is crafted at La Cofradia distillery in the famous Jalisco region, Mexico.
Tequila 512 is made from local volcanic spring water and 100% estate-grown blue agaves that are harvested in the central lowlands regions just outside the village of Tequila. The agave hearts are roasted in horno stone ovens before the shredder maceration and natural open-air fermentation in stainless steel tanks take place. Triple distilled in copper lined stainless steel pot stills, Tequila 512 undergoes charcoal filtration for 24 hours and oxygenation, which enhances the texture to achieve an exceptionally velvety mouthfeel.
Although tequila has developed a bad reputation, there's more to the spirit than just shots on a Saturday night.
This traditional Mexican drink origins in the state of Jalisco when according to a local legend, lightning struck an agave cactus before the Nahua tribe drank its warm nectar. Behold, tequila.
