    Valles is the brainchild of Siembra Azul founder David Suro, who wanted to create a tequila at the very first distillery he'd visited, Distileria Cascahuin (NOM 1123). The lowland Valles area in which it is located is known for its mineral-rich agave grown in the volcanic soils of El Arenal, Jalisco. The agave is slow roasted for up to 72 hours and shredded 4 times for optimal use of its sugars. It is meticulously fermented in a combination of Mamposteria (a stone structure enclosed by fiberglass) and stainless steel tanks. It is then distilled once in stainless steel with copper coil, then again in more slowly in small copper pot stills, bottled unaged.

    To celebrate 10 years of business, Siembra Azul founder David Suro decided to tap his playful side and combined a reposado (aged between 2 - 12 months) with a touch of extra añejo (aged 3 - 5 years). All the agave used was between 5 - 8 years old at harvest, distilled in a combination of copper and stainless steel pots as well as column stills. All of the distillate was aged in new Missouri white oak. Pushing the boundaries of tequila, this rare limited edition was created at the family distillery of Feliciano Vivanco y Asociados.

    This expression is part of the second release of the Expresiones del Corazón. Two harvests of Los Altos, Jalisco agave were used in the base spirit - one measured for higher sugar content and one with considerably lower. It was then rested at Casa San Matias in select barrels of ex-Old Rip Van Winkle bourbon from Buffalo Trace Distillery.

    As part of the second release of the Expresiones de Corazón, a special blend of tequila was made using agave from Los Altos, Jalisco with brix measured for sweetness before harvesting. Some were harvested with higher sugar, some with lower. The resulting blanco was then added to select ex-Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels and aged for several months.

    As part of the second release of Expressiones del Corazón, this limited Artisanal Edition Blanco uses 100% blue weber agave with its brix measured before harvest, instead of traditional clear cut. Two sets were harvested for the blanco - one with lower sugar and one with higher. This blend is the unaged spirit that also goes into the expressions aged in selected barrels once used for different marks of Buffalo Trace bourbon and rye.
