Don Fulano blanco fuerte tequila is crafted from the finest estate-grown, family owned agaves and is the powerhouse version of the 40% release. This heavy hitting blanco is viscous, oily and packed full of flavour. 5 generations of tradition and skill is manifested in each and every bottle of this truly exceptional tequila. This is a great example of a blanco tequila, with the taste of agave in every sip.
Referred to as ‘the orchard of Jalisco’ due to its vast and exuberant vegetation, Atotonilco is in the highlands and the first town you come to when travelling up from Guadalajara in the south and it is here that the Fonseca family grow and harvest their premium blue agave.
Dedicated to agriculture, the Fonseca family were major suppliers of all basic crops, grains, and fruits, but by the 1960’s their main focus had shifted to agave as they began to supply many of the tequila producers throughout the highlands.
The mission at Don Fulano has always been to produce exceptional tequila. They employ a truly unique dual distillation process; an old style double column still and also a traditional copper pot still, using heat to eliminate any unwanted alcohols. The two distillates are then blended. Anywhere between 12-16% of the distillate comes from the column still, this process is used exclusively by Don Fulano and allows them to consistently create tequilas of the highest quality.
AROMA: Strong notes of earth and fruits. The agave still remains the center piece though.
TASTE: he mouthfeel is even more oily with more vibrant cooked agave and baking spices. The finish has a long pleasant heat, much like other high proofs. This is a delight to drink.
ENJOY: Sipping mezcal is enjoyed slowly and with friends. Makes premium cocktails.
