Description

About the Distillery

How this product is made 

Blue Agave Harvest: The process starts with the harvest of mature blue agave plants, which can take up to 8-10 years to reach maturity. Skilled jimadores hand-select the ripest agave plants and expertly remove the leaves to reveal the “piñas,” the heart of the agave.

Cooking: The agave piñas are slow-cooked in traditional ovens called “hornos,” where they are steamed to convert the starches into fermentable sugars.

Milling: Once cooked, the agave piñas are crushed and shredded to extract the agave juice, known as ” aguamiel.”

Fermentation: The extracted aguamiel is then fermented with yeast in large tanks, allowing the sugars to convert into alcohol.

Distillation: The fermented liquid is distilled in copper pot stills to produce a high-quality tequila. El Jimador Blanco is distilled twice to achieve its smooth and clean taste.

Bottling: After distillation, the tequila is typically diluted to the desired proof using pure water and then carefully bottled for distribution.”
