Arroqueño (Agave Americano) Silver and Añejo 40% ABV The Silver version has a lightweight body and a wafting herbaceous nose. The Anejo aged in French Oak adds a delectable touch of caramel, vanilla, cinnamon, toffee and honey.

Barril (Agave Karwinski) Silver 40% ABV and Anejo 43.5% ABV Silver is shimmery clear with a lightweight, silky textured body and a peppery, herbaceous bouquet. The Anejo is aged in French oak for 23 months and emerges with a lush medium body weight and a lightly spiced herbal, pastry and honey bouquet.

Pechuga Silver 42% ABV This unique Pechuga recipe starts with a base of 100% espadin agave then combines Oaxacan orange squash, red banana, pineapple, guava, crabapple and cinnamon in the mash. A chicken breast is hung in the still for the last distillation.

Tobalá (Agave Potatorum) Silver 40% ABV Considered the King of Agaves, this estate grown Tobala erupts with fresh aromas of dill, kiwi, and freshly mown grass, all overlayed with a smoky richness. Rating Platinum 96 points BTI
