A classic Blanco Tequila hand-made in the Highlands of Los Altos.
About eighty miles due east of Guadalajara is the town of Arandas in the Highlands (Los Altos) of Jalisco, Mexico. Don Jose Luna had been traveling back and forth for decades to visit family and friends there. He would bring back bottles of Tequila from craft producers in the region — a tradition picked up by the next generation. In 2014 the Luna family teamed up with family friend Phil Salvagio to bring the Tequila to a wider audience. That’s how the line of four premium CaliFino Tequilas was born.
As you would expect, CaliFino Tequila Blanco starts with 100% Weber Blue Agave grown in the rich red soils of Los Altos. The hard-harvested piñas are slow roasted for two full days in a stone oven and fermented for three using natural yeasts. This classic Blanco is double-distilled and bottled fresh at 40% ABV.
