Olmeca Altos Plata Tequila
Altos Tequila Plata is made from 100% blue agave grown in the Los Altos highlands of Mexico. Complete with herbal notes of cooked agave, our Plata is slightly citric and sweet with a fruity aroma. It's a classic tequila for the modern world.
Created in 2009, Maestro Tequilero Jesús Hernández teamed up with two of the world´s most recognized bartenders: Henry Besant and Andrés Masso to create Altos tequila. Searching for a 100% agave tequila for craft cocktails at an affordable price, they created a high quality, agave-rich tequila good enough to sip or to mix in a cocktail.
Quality is of the utmost importance when it comes to agave. It helps that the key ingredient is planted in the ideal growing conditions at 2,100 m above sea level, and in mineral-rich volcanic soil. After growing for 7-8 years, we make sure to hand-pick only the best Blue Weber Agave. Good thing each plant can make up to 8 bottles of Altos Tequila.
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.
