Fuenteseca Cosecha Tequila explores the dynamics of a single-site spirit, embracing terroir as a concept and celebrating the uniqueness of micro-harvested agave.
Fuenteseca Tequila Cosecha 2013 (45.7% ABV) Made entirely from a single orchard of agave grown at 5,250’ elevation, Enrique Fonseca realized upon harvesting in 2013 that these agave were too dynamic to mix with others for a larger production. Instead he separated the El Maguey field plants, slowly baked them at low pressure, and double-distilled the spirit in a copper alembic pot still. He then rested the tequila for three years to achieve a complete rested oxygenation before finally bottling the small quantity in the Fall of 2016.
