Siembra Valles Blanco Tequila
Siembra Spirits // Tequila Valley, Jalisco, Mexico
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.
Tequila BlancoDistilled from 100% blue Weber agave, it is typically unaged , clear, and bottled straight after distillation. Sometimes rested in stainless steel up to 60 days and can also be aged in wood for no more than 30 days.
"This style of tequila is fresh, yet rich, with a soft and velvety weight and tart, vegetal flavors at the onset. After a couple of sips, the minerality is balanced with sweeter fruits and spearmint, and a strong, peppery spice. It ends in a pleasant, rustic, earthy finish that keeps its bitterness in check. The flavors just keep unfolding with every sip!"
