Volcan de Mi Tierra Blanco Tequila
From the Maker:
2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition Double Gold Medal Winner
100% Blue Agave Tequila. 70% slow-roasted lowland agave (utilizing horno + tahona for crushing) blended with 30% highlands agave. Double distilled in copper & stainless steel stills and left to rest for 30 days. An expression of the terroir, Volcan de Mi Tierra Tequila Blanco blends its herbal, citrus, and spice notes indicative of the lowlands with fruit notes of cherry, pear, and peach from the highlands. The tequila is a bright, clear, silver tone. On the palate, sweet agave notes with delicate hints of grapefruit and a touch of black pepper spice, making for a well-balanced finish.
About the Maker:
200,000 years ago the tequila volcano erupted and shaped the fertile soil of the Jalisco region in Mexico. Volcan de Mi Tierra distillery stands at the foot of the volcano, surrounded by their blue weber agave fields patiently growing in this incredibly rich volcanic soil. Volcan De Mi Tierra pays homage to that volcano, by reflecting it in the base of the bottle, which won gold during the IWSC, in the Spirits Artwork & Bottle Design category.
Volcan De Mi Tierra is built on an assemblage. Selecting very best agave from two regions to reach a complex and elegant liquid. The Volcan Blanco and Volcan Cristalino expressions’ complexity comes from blending carefully selected blue agave from both the Highlands (Los Altos) and the Lowlands (El Valle). Volcan Reposado is sourced 100% from the Highlands. Located in the shadow of the tequila volcano, the Lowlands develops typical earthy, spicy and herbal notes. The Highlands with a mostly red clay soil and at a higher elevation, produces rounder, more fruity and floral tequila profile.
History and innovation are infused with authenticity in a distinctive distilling process that pave the way to a new area in tequila. For the lowlands agave, it is the horno (traditional outdoor oven) for cooking of the agave that is used, the tahonafor milling and fermentation then takes place in wooden tanks.
These are combined with modern processes, utilizing the autoclave (pressure cooker oven) for cooking of the highlands agave, multistage mills for milling and we use copper pot and stainless steel stills for our distillation. Volcan de mi Tierra is unique in that they own their own distillery and the NOM 1523, is truly a guarantee of quality and credibility.
