Released in September 2016, this Blanco tequila is San Matias's first tequila made entirely with the Tahona process. They use a tahona (large stone wheel) to "gently" crush the cooked piƱas which were slow-cooked for 48 hours in brick ovens. The juice is fermented in pine vats before it is double-distilled in copper pot-stills. Bottled unaged at 40% ABV.

Tasting Notes

"An intense aroma of ripe agave, along with agave leaves, lime zest, and rainwater greet you from the moment you open the bottle. These flavors continuing throughout your tasting with the tequila showing a bittersweet profile which remains on the finish. A rich, soft tequila; enjoy as-is or with ice, lime juice, and a splash of Topo Chico."
