Eduardo and Jaime Orendain represent the fourth generation of Tequila producers in their family. Eduardo is also a former mayor of the town of Tequila and president of the National Chamber for the Tequila Industry (CNIT). Arette’s El Llano Distillery (NOM 1109) operates in the building where the Orendain family history of Tequila production began in the early 1900s. El Llano was rebuilt in 1978 and Tequila Arette was born in 1986.
The family’s estate-grown agave hails from the surrounding volcanic valley and is harvested at 8-10 years old, employing traditional tools and techniques. All of Arette’s Tequilas are double pot-distilled. Arette only produces their own 100% Agave Tequilas and does not use glycerol, caramel, oak extract or any other additives.
Arette's Clasica line of traditional Tequilas offers the perfect combination of heritage, craft and value - cooked slow and low in autoclave ovens and fermented in open stainless steel tanks. Additionally, the Artesanal Suave bottlings are unique expressions masterfully produced using traditional brick ovens and fermented in concrete tanks, original to the distillery. The Artesenal line includes an exceptionally rare single barrel Extra Anejo.
Because of their great complexity, Anejo Tequilas are most often used as a substitute for Brandy or Whiskey in cocktails like the Manhattan or Old Fashioned. Anejo Tequilas must be aged in oak barrels for between one and three years, while Extra Anejo refers to any Tequila aged longer than three years. The prolonged contact with the oak barrel allows the wood to make a much stronger impression on the Tequila by adding toffee, caramel and vanilla to the sweet, spicy agave flavor profile.
