“El Original Licor de Tequila”
Agavero is an ultra-premium spirit that is created from a blend of 100% blue agave añejo and reposado tequilas hand blended with the essence of Damiana flower for unparalleled smoothness and taste.
Agavero is produced at los Camichines Distillery in the Jalisco region of Mexico where the blue agave plant is grown. This officially designated region includes the state of Jalisco, parts of adjoining states and the town of tequila for which the spirit is named.
The master distiller selects the highest quality 100% blue agave añejo and reposado tequilas that have been separately aged in specially charred, French Limousin oak barrels. The añejo tequila is aged up to eighteen months and the reposado tequila is rested for nearly a year. The tequilas are combined and then hand blended with the essence of Damiana, a flower indigenous to the hot mountains of Jalisco that has been rumored for centuries to stir up the emotions among individuals.
At 64 proof, Agavero can be enjoyed straight, on the rocks or in a number of cocktails.
Agavero is made exclusively from blue agave plants that are a minimum of 10 years old when harvested. The production process begins with the delicate baking of the piña, or heart of the blue agave. The heart of the blue agave is then crushed to obtain the aguamiel (honey water). The aguamiel is put through natural fermentation and then subjected to two slow distillations to produce tequila. Before bottling, the tequila is aged in new, French limousine oak barrels. The añejo tequila is aged eighteen months and the reposado tequila is rested up to one year. The long maturation allows for the full benefits of the slightly charred, limousin oak casks to be blended into the liquid. Then the secret ingredient, the essence of the damiana flower, is hand blended to the tequila blend for unparalleled smoothness and taste.
