Distilled from estate-grown Blue Weber agave from 300 ha lowland site, practicing organic farming. Agave are roasted at 120° C for 15 hours and allowed to rest for another 15 hours. Fermented in El Llano's original cement vat with house yeast for six to seven days to about 4-5% abv. Twice distilled in stainless steel pot stills with interior copper condenser by Eduardo Orendain before being aged in ex-Bourbon barrels for 11 months.
Featuring fruity-sweet flavor notes, the tighter cut of the distillate ensures less acetone flavors and puts an emphasis on a mid-palate wash of mint, pepper, vanilla, and ripe apple and plum.
