Intensity, consistency, clarity… learn about the features of the authentic silver tequila:
Bright, crystalline and with silver hues.
Very defined consistency and a long lasting end in the palate and nose.

An excellent appetizer thanks to its acidity and alcohol levels, which stimulate appetite.
Produced mainly in Jalisco, with agaves of about eight years old, without aging in barrels, and stored for at most one month.
Tequila Designation of OriginThe General Declaration of Protection of the Tequila Designation of Origin establishes that for tequila to be recognized as such, it must be produced in Mexico in the tequilera region, and be made of at least 51 percent agave. Furthermore, it specifies the 181 municipalities that are permitted to produce tequila, 125 of which are in Jalisco.
Benefits of the Designation of Origin
- It certifies the authenticity of the tequila.
- It assures the quality of the product.
- It promotes the recognition of tequila on an international scale.
How do we benefit from the organic?
- We keep our soil fertile. By preserving the vegetation cover in our fields we prevent soil erosion.
- We protect the wildlife that inhabits our fields by not altering the ecosystems.
- We do not pollute water. We do not use chemicals that may alter the composition of groundwater.
- We keep agave’s natural flavor. Because it is organic, it does not contain herbicides, insecticides, fungicides or other chemicals that may harm our body.
Jalisco, the ideal land for tequilaVarious municipalities of different Mexican states currently produce tequila with Designation of Origin; nevertheless, Jalisco stands out for possessing the ideal geographical and climate conditions for the optimal growth of the blue agave: a subtropical semi-arid climate –of dry and mild springs and winters–, an arid soil rich in minerals with an altitude of 1200 to 2000 meters above sea level.
