There is never a corner cut in Código 1530’s production. The sole purpose is to make the most selective tequila in the world using only perfect inputs and age-old secret family processes. They use fully-matured agave aged over 7 years, ensuring each batch of agave’s Brix level (sugar content) meets their high standards. Each drop of Amatitán water used is from freshwater pools and rainwater, filtered through the volcanic soil of Los Bajos. The proprietary chopper allows them to extract only the best juice and pulp from the first press of agave to garner the purest flavor. The fermentation process is highlighted by an organic yeast from a small family bakery in Amatitán. They use the finest Napa Cabernet French White Oak Barrels in their time-honored family aging process, embracing the clean elegance of wine making to produce a uniquely delicate finish.
First produced in the 16th century when Spanish conquistadors ran short of Brandy on their expedition to the New World, Tequila is made by distilling the juice from the heart of the blue agave plant that grows in Jalisco, Mexico. Tequilas can range from clear and unaged, known as Blanco, to darker, barrel-aged Reposado, Anejo and Extra Anejo. Popularized as the essential ingredient to the refreshing Margarita, it is also commonly enjoyed neat or with a side of lime and salt.
