Aged: 3 months
Product of: Mexico
100% agave reposado tequila aged 8-10 months in ex-bourbon casks and made from agave roasted in traditional Mampostería' masonry ovens and from a blend of two distillates: one made from agave crushed in a modern roller mill and the other distilled with agave fibre crushed by a tahona millstone.
Launched in November 2009, Olmeca Altos, the latest addition to Olmeca range came about through collaboration between Jesús Hernández and the Worldwide Cocktail Club duo Henry Besant and Dre Masso. The three worked to develop a premium quality 100% agave tequila that was particularly suited to cocktail use and at a price that made it accessible as a pouring brand. Like Olmeca Teźon this 100% agave tequila is produced from piña that are traditionally slow-roasted in the 'Mampostería' brick ovens but is a blend of Tequila produced from combination of traditional tahona millstone and modern mechanical mills.
