100% agave Highland tequila aged 8-10 months in ex-bourbon casks which are refilled as many as 20 times. It is blended from the output of two distilleries, one using a mule-pulled tahona wheel and fermentation with fibres, the other a modern roller mill. Both distilleries use tradition brick ovens.
