Tequila ArteNOM // Tequila Valley, Jalisco, Mexico
Tequila ArteNOM Selección de 1549 Orgánico Blanco was produced using USDA certified organic agaves sourced from the Tequila Valley in Jalisco. After the agaves are halved and quartered, they are steam-roasted in a brick kiln oven for 24 hours. After fermentation, the juice is distilled to 54% ABV and reduced to 80 proof with demineralized water. This was produced at NOM 1549, Destilería Refugio by Master Mezcalero Ramón Sandoval--all of this information proudly stated on the front of the bottle.
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 aromas here are clean, bright, and has a slight green olive note to it as well. The palate is again clean and crisp with the mid-palate about white pepper, mint, and fresh green herbs. This is a lively blanco tequila and would be a fresh addition to cocktails such as a Silver Fizz."
