About Exotico Blanco Tequila
is traditionally handcrafted by one of Mexico’s most respected makers of tequila: the Gonzalez Distillery – a family distillery spanning three generations. Their highly acclaimed tequilas are crafted from Weber Blue Agave grown in the Highlands of Jalisco. The red clay soil of these Highlands yields a larger, sweeter agave heart, giving Exotico its floral, well-balanced flavor. Matured for up to 15 years, the best agaves are harvested, trimmed with a “coa” (a long-handled hoe-like tool) leaving the “pina.”
These hearts are steam-cooked for 16 hours in autoclave ovens to heighten their sugar content. Then the cooked pinas are put through a mill to undergo the “Molino” process, shredding the agave into small pieces squeezing out the “agua miel” (agave juice). This sweet juice infuses the tequila with sweet, fruity notes.
After being fermented with a proprietary yeast. The tequila is twice-distilled through traditional pot stills. This premium, unaged 100% blue agave tequila won “Mexico Blanco Tequila of the Year,” and a gold medal at the 2017 Berlin International Spirits Competition. This is a tequila you can enjoy straight or, elevate any drink.
