Tequila of the Month: Olmeca Altos

Olmeca Altos Tequila is produced at Destileria Colonial de Jalisco. Operation at the distillery is overseen by Maestro Tequilero Jesús Hernández and his team of workers. As the Master Distiller he is responsible for supervising all production, from the harvest of the plants in the agave fields to the bottling of the tequila. Olmeca Alto uses traditional methods to harvest the Agave plants as well as a 500-year-old Tahona method of crushing the cooked pinas with a volcanic millstone to draw out the sweet juice and syrup from the fibers. This process results in a very smooth and expert Tequila. Enjoy it straight or in a margarita! The Plata and a Reposado that is aged 6-8 months is now available. Come give it a try and let us know what you think of our new tequila.
