About Solento Tequila
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.
