varietals, embajador

Embajador Tequila is made from 100% Blue Weber Agave. Our agave fields, distillery and bottling facility are all located in Atotonilco in Los Altos de Jalisco, Mexico. We use a blend of modern & traditional methods.

Tequila has a soul that must be honored. Beneath its long,thick, spiny stems lurks a heart of sugar… patience! It will ripen in seven to ten years. “Embajador Agaves which grow in the highlands of Jalisco ripen in 8 to 10 years. Their growth should not be hurried, for time is all-wise.

The Way of the Agave is a traditional art. We honor tradition and do things as they were done of old. Our process begins in the adobe furnace that softens the plant’s fibers and transforms its starches into sugars. The agave is then heated for 30 hours and left to rest for another 12.

Once cooked, our Agave is passed through a shredder to separate the coarse fibers, then through rollers to squeeze out its sweet juice. To facilitate the process and extract the last drop of nectar, water is injected through the mash at high pressure.

This water is drawn from Embajador Tequila’s aquifer well, which lends its distinctive tones only to our brand.

The extracted juice is placed in vats where the process of fermentation begins. Embajador devotes from three to five days to this step, so as to attain the proper body and quality.

When this natural chemical process is complete, the mash is prepared for the first, or “ordinal” distillation. This is followed by a second distillation to purify the spirit into premium white tequila.

With the distillation complete and the base tequila ready, the liquid is set aside to age. Embajador Tequila’s cellar can accommodate 1,600 barrels (200,000 liters).

While the Blanco (white) tequila may be bottled as is, we take an extra step. Embajador Platinum Blanco is aged in stainless steel vats for up to 40 days before bottling for a complete balance of character.

Reposados (“rested”) are aged a minimum of two months, but less than a year. Embajador Premium Reposado is rested for a period of eight months in American and French Oak barrels

Añejos are aged a minimum of one year, but less than three years. Embajador Supreme Añejo is aged with devotion for one year and six months in American and French Oak barrels

Extra Añejos are aged for a minimum of three years. Our Embajador Extra Añejo is currently aging elegantly awaiting to reveal its grand exquisiteness and character.
