A meticulously-crafted Blanco Tequila from a five-generation estate producer in the Jalisco Highlands.
Five generations of the Vivanco Family have worked the land growing crops and agave in Arandas, Jalisco, Mexico. They built their own distillery in 1990 that they have affectionately named "Mi Ranchito" and released their first house-Tequila in 1994. They control every aspect of production. They own the farms, harvest the agave, produce the Spirit, and age and bottle it on site — making Mi Ranchito a true estate producer of high-quality Tequilas.
Tequila Cabeza Blanco is a special Joven Spirit. First, the piñas are harvested when the weather gets cool so that fermentation can occur in the winter months. This is important because the cool air at high altitude allows the natural fermentation to occur slowly — building more flavor. The Spirit is distilled twice in two separate copper pot stills. After the first distillation, the low Wine (ordinario) emerges at 20-22% ABV. The Spirit is then filtered a single time before being distilled a second time to ~55% ABV. No additional filtration occurs and it is brought to proof and bottled at 43% ABV. It’s one of the most flavorful un-aged Tequilas we’ve ever tasted.
