Named after the traditional stone mill used to produce Tequila, Santanera Tahona uses only Agave crushed by a wheel carved from a volcanic Tahona stone. This tequila is produced out of Cascahuin in El Arenal.
This ancestral method imparts aromas and flavours into the final spirit, with crisp flinty notes on the pallet. Silky and smooth, this platinum clear spirit is fresh and vibrant, and showcases the exceptional quality Agave and wild yeast used to produce this incredible Tequila.
Casa Santanera produces some of the world’s finest batch crafted Tequila. Founder Pablo Lara has a family history in Agave cultivation and distillation. Casa Santanera is working against the commercial orientation of the mainstream Tequila industry, where the art of producing Tequila has been replaced by chemistry. From producing packaging and labels from recycled Agave fibres, to creating single terroir certified organic Tequila, Casa Santanera is working to increase sustainability practices while being renowned for the highest quality Tequila on the market.
Using hand built, custom brick ovens and special concrete fermentation tanks that produce a higher concentration of bubbles during the fermentation stage, Casa Santanera also uses a unique technique they have dubbed “Sonic Harmonization”
whereby classical music by Mozart is played 24 hours a day to the fermentation tanks. They claim that this style of music causes a more dynamic and harmonious movement in the yeast, which in turn creates deeper flavours and aromas. This “Sonic Harmonization” technique is inspired by formal studies by pseudo-scientist Masaru Emoto, whereby it is claimed that classical music benefits all living things down to a molecular level.
AROMA: Bold peppercorn and pear skin on the nose, bolstered by petrichor and baked yam
TASTE: Bright herbaceous palate, with fresh sweetgrass, snap pea, lemon zest, and an undercurrent of cured meat and wet clay. Truly incredible blanco tequila.
