Tequila ArteNOM Seleccion "1549" Organico Blanco Tequila
Pure and clear with rich agave viscosity. Notes of rising pastry dough, spring rain, mint, and bold roasted agave. Velvety in the mouth, with a wine-like texture with fresh chile tingle, white pepper and spearmint candy notes.
This valley-agave selection (elev. 4,200') comes from El Arenal, where Ramon Sandoval carefully distills this delicious un-aged tequila from certified-organic agave. The valley growing conditions lend this spirit a distinctive herbaceous flavor with warm aromatics, and a fresh, vegetal bouquet with intriguing notes of cacao and subtle spice.
Tequila ArteNOM presents regional tequila selections of distinct altitude, heritage, agave cultivation, and distillation technique. These specially-curated expressions represent the unique, personal craft of their master distillers: truly making an ART of their NOM.
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.
