Familia Camarena Silver is a 100% blue agave tequila distilled by the Camarena family who have been planting and harvesting agave in the Jalisco Highlands (Los Altos) since 1860. The agave piñas or centers are hand harvested and typically weight more than 100 pounds. The piñas are slow roasted in traditional stone ovens for several days before the juices are fermented and distilled.

Tasting Notes

"The nose is full of bright, baked agave notes with gentle fresh green herbs. The tequila feels slick on the palate with the cooked agave flavors fading to the background. The mid-palate fades pretty quickly leaving you with a bittersweet finish with earthy tones. Not terribly complex, but no off-putting flavors. Shoot or mix for best results."
