Solento has partnered with the award-winning distillery Las Americas in Amititan, Jalisco, Mexico. The Montes family have been producing small batches of tequila for over 60 years. They practice a production process that respects the environment: harvesting sustainably-maintained, organic, blue agave.
Harvested in small batches from a single estate, the Montes family jimadors are meticulous in their technique, adopting a quality over quantity model from start to finish. When cutting into the agave, they cut out as much of the bitter stem as possible in order to protect the naturally sweet and smooth flavor profile we are left with.
The agave is then cooked in brick ovens, extracted using a roller mill, fermented in open air and double distilled.
Finally, the remains of the agave is used to fertilize the fields and will always replant at a minimum rate of 1:1.
