Santaleza Blanco Tequila is made from 100 percent all-natural, fully matured Blue Weber agave artisanally produced without additives or diffusers.
The ancestral distillation process blends a 135-year-old tahona passed down in the family with an innovative mechanical donkey named Pepe, the masonry roasted agave is crushed by the tahona and then moved to local Roble wood vats filled with mountain spring water straight from the distillery’s grounds and left to ferment in an all-natural open-air process. The spirit is twice distilled in copper stills and left to rest until the flavor reaches perfection. The rested spirit is then hand bottled or added to ex-bourbon barrels, which will mature for a minimum of four months.
Appearance: Crystal clear, exhibiting an even coating when swirled in the glass. You will see quick-forming, evenly distributed legs falling fast along the side of your glass.
Aroma: On the nose, you are greeted with jasmine and a hint of lime. Dried fruits and nuts lead to a hint of orange blossoms.
Palate: The palate offers a pleasant, well-balanced viscosity that coats your mouth evenly with honey’s soft and welcoming sweetness. This is followed by tangerine, freshly cracked pink peppercorns, a distinct soft minerality, and finishing with the ripe agave that started the process. A clean, pure spirit with an exceptional finish calls you back for more.
