Tequila ArteNOM presents regional tequila selections of distinct altitude, agave cultivation, and distillation technique.
Selección de 1580 Blanco: 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 flavor.
Selección de 1549 Blanco Orgánico: This valley-agave selection (elev. 4,200’) comes from El Arenal, where Ramón Sandoval carefully distills this delicious un-aged tequila from certified-organic agave. The valley growing conditions lend this spirit a distinctive herbaceous flavor with warm aromatics, and a fresh, vegetal bouquet with intriguing notes of cacao and subtle spice.
Selección de 1414 Reposado: From Arandas (elev. 5,400′), Feliciano Vivanco has been cultivating highland agave since Mexico’s tumultuous post-revolutionary period of 1919-1929. The family now holds 2,000 acres of estate-grown agave producing a rich, well-balanced spirit.
Selección de 1146 Añejo: In Atotonilco El-Alto, Jalisco (Elev. 4,620′), El Arquitecto Enrique Fonseca is a fifth-generation agave cultivator and master distiller, possessing the largest highland agave holdings in the industry. This Añejo selection is drawn from old French and American oak to create a unique and unforgettable complexity.
