ArteNOM Tequila

ArteNOM

ArteNOM takes a non-traditional approach to their portfolio by working with idyllic Tequileros at their respective distillery to create a lineup of expressions as unique as the distillers themselves. An exploration of the full line is to dive deeply into the heart and minds of the diversity of craft in making artisanal Tequilas. As the name indicates, through ArteNOM, these distillers are truly able to showcase the ART of their NOM.

Why we love ArteNOM

  • With distillers Felipe Camarena, Sergio Cruz, Enrique Fonseca, Ramón Sandoval, and Don Salvador Torres of Cascahuin, behind these expressions, this is arguably one of the most respected special collections in Tequila.

  • Flavors in this profile are unrivaled amongst other single collections. See tasting profiles below for details. You will not want to miss this one.

  • Single bottle vintages allow these legendary distillers to work within their craft, but outside the boundaries of their own brands.

  • The portfolio explores a wide range of agave terroir, from El Arenal in The Valley, to its highest elevation in Jesús-María An excellent display of differences in flavor produced by fermentation as each distiller has a unique approach, including wild yeast, field yeasts, Mendoza wine yeast, and commercial yeasts
