Our Tequila

TEQUILA

Taste and sustainability equally important

Tequila Buen Vato is made of Agave that has been maturating for eight years of the clay-rich earth of the Vally of Tequila next to the Amatitán town.

The family Real, 5th generation agaveros has been working the earth in the same fields their horses feed and kids play, hence no overuse of herbicides and pesticides. The taste of this Agave is typical of the region, rich in sugars and hints of citrus.

The Agave is cooked in a pressure cooker (autoclave) and slowly fermented without any accelerator.

The distillation is performed in stainless still pot stills, the Buen Vato Tequila is high in Agave but not a 100% Agave. The reason for this is that we managed to reach the same flavor and body profile as a 100% Agave, but since we are on the mission to minimize the environmental impact, instead of bottling in Mexico (100% can only be bottled in Mexico), we transport 55% Tequila and blend to 38% in Europe where the bottling is done.

We have been particularly cautious about taking away all taste modifiers such as glycerine and sugars to present the real thing. In our work, we value the taste equally as we praise the sustainability factor. It’s up to you to tell if we have done a good job, we hope you enjoy it!

We want to redefine what a ‘good’ tequila is by challenging perceptions of what ‘good’ means.
