- Olmeca Tezón is one of our premium tequilas, made from 100% Agave. A product of the Olmeca family, who produce their tequila in the highlands of Jalisco in Mexico, Olmeca Tezón takes its name from the indigenous volcanic mineral, known locally as Tezontle, which the traditional Tahona wheel press is made from.
- The Tahona milling method dates back over 500 years and involves an enormous two tonne millstone crushing the Agave piñas into a pulp. Only a few other producers of Tequila currently use this method of milling – it is three times more time consuming than modern methods and produces around 6% more wastage. So, a lot of time and love goes into each bottle! The sweet juice extracted from the Tahona is called Tahona Liquid, of which a percentage is integrated into the fermentation and distillation process of all Olmeca Tequilas. Olmeca Tezón is the only one, however, that contains 100% of the Tahona Liquid.There are three types of Olmeca Tezón on our Tequila menu – Blanco, Reposado and Añejo.
Unaged and bottled after distillation, this clear, crystalline tequila has a light and clean herbal scent and tastes of citrus fruits with hints of honey, vanilla and spice with a pleasant, lingering finish. This is one sexy, sophisticated tequila!
- Reposado (Aged)
Its brilliant gold colour is obtained from the American white oak casks, that were formally used to age Wild Turkey Bourbon. Aged and for 8-10 months, it has mandarin and lime notes, with a woody finish. The taste is spicy with a vanilla richness, mixed with grapefruit and orange flavours, leaving a sweet, smoky trace.
- Añejo (Extra Aged)
For the connoisseurs among us, Tezón Añejo has been aged slowly for between 18 and 20 months and is ripe, full-bodied with a robust smoky bouquet that stirs the senses. It has a rich butterscotch and vanilla palate, with notes of orange peel, sea salt and oak, thanks to those ex-Wild Turkey Bourbon casks, and a long finish
