The first ever 100% Criollo agave Tequila.
Sophie Decobecq is a hell of an impressive lady. A French woman who came to Mexico to study biochemistry and engineering, she’s bold but also very relatable: she loved this agave-forward Spirit so much, she simply decided to make her own. Her background came in handy and today, Sophie makes premium authentic Tequila from agave that grows in the Los Altos de Jalisco region. The agave hearts are harvested by skilled jimadoros after 7-9 years before the hearts are cooked in stainless steel ovens and double distilled in pot stills.
The inspiration for this limited and unique Tequila came to Sophie when she was expecting her first child. Calle 23 Criollo Blanco Tequila is the first Tequila ever made exclusively from Criollo blue agave. This type of agave stays small and sweet even after it’s matured, which is rare. The distilled Spirit is “married” with locally sourced pure spring water that brings it to exactly 49.4% ABV, which is an unusual proof for Tequila but Sophie says it delivers the purest expression of Criollo agave flavors. We adore this special creation for its soft and gentle nature that’s complimented by a strong character. Just like Sophie, we’d imagine.
