Laying claim to the highest modern distillery in the world, La Estacada sits at 7,200 feet above sea level. It is here that the Herrara family produce their exquisit sipping tequila Tierra Noble. La Estacada is located just outside the equisite town of Mazamitla in Jaliso Mexico.
Two unique aspects of Tierra Noble which make it the perfect tequila are at these high altitudes, the air is cool and crisp which causes a much slower fermentation resulting in a musto with well developed flavours (using exclusively Montpelier wine yeast) and a secondary fermentation, usually only scene in chardonnay production, which produces beautiful buttery notes in the final product.
The ageing years give this Anejo an elegant and refined personality that becomes a wide bouquet of notes and tastes typical of the careful assembly of American and French white oak woods.
TASTE: Superbly structured; creamy balance, silky, sweet and with subtle touches of dry fruit. Notes of oak, spices and pepper.
BARREL: American and French oak
ENJOY: As a premium sipping tequila
