Familia Camarena Silver Tequila
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Every Camarena bottle tells a story, originating in 1761 in Arandas, Jalisco Mexico, the heart of the highlands of artisanal tequila production. Here, the centuries-old bell tolls to this day, signaling celebration and drawing in the community from miles around. The bell, and what is symbolizes to the people, inspired the shape of the Camarena bottle. And in the center of our bottles, the wolves of Jalisco are hiding in plain sight, just as they did in the most sough-after agave fields. Feared and revered for their cunning and fierceness, these wolves are guardians of the agave and of the people of Arandas. Their loyalty demands unwavering respect, and an understanding that when you are good to the wolves, the wolves will be good to you. This spirit is contained within every bottle of the most award-winning tequila, dedicated to the lands where agave is grown, the bell rings and wild wolves roam. Their story is etched in every bottle of Camarena tequila and within every bottle, there is a story waiting to be told.
Tequila Blanco, or ‘white Tequila’, is also known as Tequila Plata, or ‘silver Tequila’. Its clear color is the result of being bottled immediately after distillation instead of being aged in oak barrels like Tequila Reposado or Anejo. Because of their youth and lack of barrel influence, Blanco Tequilas are thought to offer the purest expression of blue agave available, with notes of citrus and pepper. However, they can also be quite forceful and energetic on the palate without the moderating influence of time and wood.
