Tequila San Matias Tahona Blanco
Tequila San Matias // Los Altos, Jalisco, Mexico
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 piñas 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.
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.
"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."
