OLMECA ALTOS || TEQUILA OF THE WEEK

WHAT IS TEQUILA OF THE WEEK?

EACH WEEK AT HOT TAMALE WE SPOTLIGHT A DIFFERENT TEQUILA FOR EVERYONE TO ENJOY, THIS WEEK WE HAVE CHOSEN TO SHOWCASE OLMECA ALTOS TEQUILA.

OLMECA ALTOS TEQUILA

Master Distiller

Maestro Tequilero Jesús Hernandez keeps us grounded and oversees production at our birthplace, the Destilería Colonial de Jalisco in Los Altos, where he has been the Maestro for 17 years. Managing every part of production, from the harvesting of agave to the aging of our Reposado, Jesús pours his passion into every bottle of Altos Tequila. A Jalisco native himself, Jesús spent many years studying architecture and bottle manufacturing in the USA and brought his knowledge back to Mexico to help construct our distillery. His son, also named Jesús, provides tours of the distillery. We like to keep it in the family.

Creators

Henry Besant and Dre Masso both got their starts in the bartending industry, working their way to the top and winning awards with every step. After noticing a gap in the tequila market, Henry and Dre partnered with Maestro Tequilero Jesús Hernandez to create high-quality tequila that captured the authenticity of agave distillation, but also make it accessible to tequila fans from all over. The result- Altos Tequila, a tequila created by bartenders for bartenders.

OLMECA ALTOS TEQUILA PLATA

Altos Tequila Plata is made from 100% blue agave grown in the Los Altos highlands of Mexico. Complete with herbal notes of cooked agave, our Plata is slightly citric and sweet with a fruity aroma. It’s a classic tequila for the modern world.
