This is the slightly older expression than the Blanco (the youngest expression) and younger than the Avion Anejo . This tequila is produced in the highlands (Los Altos), at the highest altitudes that you can find agaves (also where the most volcanic minerals can be found). This is the area where the most prized agaves grow and it certainly shows in this tequila. Distilled in Jalisco, the heart of tequila country, this tequila differs in it's production in a number of ways from a lot of other tequilas. First of course is the sourcing from the highlands, as already stated, second is the use of hornitos (large traditional clay ovens) and the very slow roasting of the agaves (OK that may count as two), third the use of copper pot stills, (a vast majority of tequilas are distilled in stainless steel column steels), and their ultra slow filtration through charcoal. All in all a unique if not almost singular approach to making a tequila.
