Region: Los Altos, Jalisco

Age of agave when harvested: 6-10 years, the pinas are cut into 4 rather than 2 to increase surface area for maximum sweetness

Oven type: autoclave for 22 hours (industry standard is 18)

Extraction method: mechanical roller mills, the pulp (bagasse) is used to fuel the stills

Fermentation: is done in sealed stainless steel vats using well water for a sweet soft flavour, he plays rock music to his vats to encourage yeast activity

Still type: Column and pot still for a very smooth taste

Rested: 3-5 months, in "virgin" American oak barrels featuring a lighter No. 2 char to impart more subtle caramel and vanilla notes, 200 litre barrels are used which are smaller than the industry standard 500 litre barrels, giving the liquid more contact with the wood for additional complexity

ABV: 40%
