Santera Tequila is produced and bottled in Tequila, Jalisco, the heart of Mexico’s blue weber agave growing and tequila producing region. The creation of Santera Tequila begins with the perfectly matured blue weber agave. the agave plant is grown in the red volcanic soil of the dormant Volcán de Tequila in the northern highlands of Jalisco.
Serve neat over ice or in a Tequila Old Fashioned to fully appreciate the rich complexity of this aged tequila. Agave hearts harvested for Santera are the product of sustainable farming practices resulting in lower yield and higher quality tequila. A slow roasting and extended fermentation of the piñas help to round out the soft and balanced flavors. After distillation, the tequilas undergo a proprietary filtration process, after which Master Distiller Agustín Sanchez selects optimal development periods for each interpretation. With meticulous attention, he balances the aromas and taste profile.
