Tapatio stes itself aside with its pure classic flavor profile of 100% Blue Agave Tequila from the highlands. Distiller Carlos Camarena has developed cult like status with Tequila lovers with the quality and integrity of his hard to obtain Tapatio brand.
The 100% Estate grown Blue Agave are hand selected by Jimadores and delivered fresh to the distillery where they are hand cut and placed in the oven. Once baked, the Blue Agaves are crushed and pressed in a modified sugar cane mill to extract the sweet agave juice ("Mosto") which is then ready for fermentation. A selected fraction of freshly made "Mosto" is left to ferment using a special in-house 75 year old yeast culture. Once the "Mosto" ferments into dry "Mosto Muerto" it is ready to be distilled. Distilled in small Copper Alambiques Tequilano Pot Stills. Barely filtered to preserve mouth feel, texture and viscosity of the estate grown Blue Agave.
