The Rancho El Olvido in Jesús-María (elev. 6,200′) is tequila’s highest altitude distillery, producing small artisan batches of bright, intensely aromatic tequila, owing to porous soil that “stresses” the agave plants to create a rich agave flavour. This tequila is made with a combination of rain water (50%) and mineral-rich deep well water (50%). Agaves are cooked in traditional brick ovens, then crushed using a mechanical tahona, and later distilled in copper pot stills. The blanco that comes out then goes through a 24-hour oxygenation process before it is bottled. The result is a tequila loaded with cooked agave from front to back, as well as earth, pepper, and minty aromas and flavors.
Drink it neat, drink it on ice, most certainly drink it with good friends!
