Our tequila that we make our premium margarita from comes from the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico is known for its distinct, rich flavor and smooth finish. The Highlands, or "Los Altos," region of Jalisco is known for its ideal climate and mineral-rich soil, which is ideal for growing the blue agave plant, the key ingredient in tequila production.
The tequila from the Highlands is known for its unique flavor profile, which is often described as having earthy, floral, and fruity notes. The blue agave plants grown in the Highlands tend to be larger and sweeter than those grown in other regions, which lends to the distinct flavor of tequila from this area.
One of the unique characteristics of tequila from the Highlands of Jalisco is that it is often made using traditional methods, including using a tahona, a large stone wheel, to crush the cooked agave. This process gives the tequila a more rustic, natural flavor.
Highlands tequila is often aged longer than tequila from other regions, which allows for a more refined and nuanced flavor. The aging process also gives the tequila a smoother finish, making it ideal for sipping and enjoying neat.
When it comes to tequila from the Highlands of Jalisco, it is important to look for the designation "100% Blue Agave." This means that the tequila is made entirely from the blue agave plant and has not been blended with other types of alcohol.
