Artenom 'Seleccion de 1579' Tequila Blanco Jalisco Mexico
The mountain town of Jesús-María (elev. 6,788’) is tequila’s highest altitude agave region, and the El Pandillo Distillery is arguably one of the most forward-thinking and sustainable distilleries in the business. There, Felipe Camarena masterfully crafts this bright, aromatic tequila from stressed hillside agave plants, slowly roasted in brick ovens and macerated intact with fiber for a pronounced agave flavor.
Pure and clear with rich agave viscosity. On the nose hints of rising pastry dough, spring rain, mint, bold roasted agave. The Palate has a velvety, wine-like texture with fresh chile tingle, white pepper, spearmint candies.
