Enticing with its crystal sparkle, our Blanco strikes the perfect balance between power and purity. On the nose, we are greeted with fresh and roasted agave, rosemary and coriander, pears and apple compote. Reminiscent of our terruño are mineral notes of stone and wet soil, touches of green citrus and the soft tones of lilac. The palate is creamy and well-structured, where flavors confirm the aromas of sweet agave flavors and deliver a remarkable, almost saline minerality. The velvety mouthfeel lingers with a medium to long finish. The strength and character of Loco Blanco stands up to foods with fresh herbs, citrus and even a bit of spice.
ABOUT LOCO TEQUILA
Loco Tequila seeks to create a new paradigm of tequila-making, one that is defined by terroir, innovation, refinement and uncompromising quality. Following rigorous protocols - from farming to distillation - each limited batch is artisanally crafted using ancestral methods that honor the original identity of agave.
Loco Tequila owns and farms over 200 acres of agave, all within 3 miles of their historic Hacienda de La Providencia and distillery in El Arenal, Jalisco, recognized by UNESCO as the origin of tequila production. Situated at 1,450 m (4,757 ft), the acidic volcanic soils impart bright citrus notes with clean mineral undertones.
Essential to the refinement, richness and smoothness of Loco Tequila is their rare "double jima" technique, shaving the piña a second time to expose the white flesh and removing the cogollo (heart) to eliminate green, waxy and bitter flavors.
After slow cooking in a traditional horno, both the tahona and small roller mill are used to extract complex, agave-driven flavors. Then using 100+ year old native yeasts, rescued from the wooden tanks of our historic hacienda, we prepare six separate open-air fermentations for every small batch production.
Farmed by Maestro Agavero, Antonio Sanchez and created by Maestro Tequilero, Alberto Navarro, author of Larousse del Tequila. Renowned Mexican artist Jan Hendrix was commissioned to design the packaging.
