Siete Leguas Blanco Tequila
Los Altos, Jalisco, Mexico
This tequila is actually distilled at two of the brand's own distilleries, Fábricas El Centenario and La Vencedora. The former employs more traditional methods including the use of two mules to pull the tahona (stone wheel) and wild yeast in fermentation while the latter uses a molina (a modern mill) to crush the agaves and their own yeast strain. Both are distilled in copper pot stills and the two tequilas are blended together to create their product.
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.
"The aroma is intensely full of sweet agave and earthy notes, maybe even smoky. The palate is rich, but not oily and the rustic, earthy tones continue on the palate. There's a bit of pepper and some sweetness, but not overtly so. There's a presence to this tequila that is difficult to describe but I can say I feel grounded drinking it."
