This range of tequilas is from the Fonseca family that has been agave farming for five generations. They are one of only two producers to offer 1OO% estate grown and bottled tequila. The agave uses a dual distillation process comprised of a double column still and a traditional copper pot still.
How's it taste?
Our A–ejo is a marriage of very old tequila aged in French limousine and nevers casks that previously held wines. It is deep and complex with dried fruits and spice elements like cardamom and allspice which complement elegantly the right touch of sweetness that comes from slowly cooked mature agave. Honey and caramelised nuts emerge from a long finish together with refreshing light menthol. Great to wrap up a nice dinner.
How was it made?
Don Fulano Tequila is an agricultural product. The fruit of five generations of agave farmers and a singular tequila-making heritage brings together the highlands of Jalisco and the valleys of Tequila. Estate-Grown and bottled, it's entirely made from three ingredients: hand-selected mature highland agave, proprietary yeast and natural spring water which filters slowly from Tequila’s volcano. Completely natural and pure, only three other elements complete our product: Heat, Passion and Time. Lots of time; in the majestic solitude of the iron-rich hillsides where our agaves grow unhurriedly; in the steam-filled ovens where fructans slowly become sugar; in open fermentation tanks were carefully cultivated yeast work its magic; in copper stills where a double distillation concentrates flavour and aroma. And time again, resting in used casks of dark European oak which previously held wines from Jerez, Portugal, Burgundy, Bordeaux, the Loire and the valleys of Napa and Sonoma. Each batch is finally blended from carefully selected barrels by the master of the cellar and married together for 3 to 6 additional months before being bottled, non-chill filtered and without additives. We hope you enjoy our tequila. Estate-grown in the highlands of Jalisco
