ArteNOM Selección de 1579 Tequila Blanco
|Country of origin
At 6,788 feet above sea level in the remote mountain town of Jesús María, Felipe Camarena masterfully crafts this bright, aromatic tequila from stressed hillside agave plants grown in tequila's highest-altitude agave region. After select harvesting, the agave plants are slowly roasted in brick ovens and macerated intact with their fibres for a richer, fuller flavour. Following fermen- tation with rainwater, Felipe slowly distills this selección in small copper pot stills and aerates the spirit prior to bottling.
Rising pastry dough, spring rain, mint, bold roasted agave. Velvety, wine-like texture with fresh chile tingle, white pepper, spearmint candies.
