Calle 23 starts with the careful selection of blue agave plants, sourced from Los Altos de Jalisco (The Highlands) area, between the town of Tepatitlan and Arandas. In this area, the agave plants benefit from hot and sunny dry periods, followed by heavy rainy seasons, and a fertile soil, high in minerals, which produces richer and higher quality agaves, taking 7 to 9 years to reach full maturity.
Available in three expressions:
The purist's choice. An un-aged 100% agave tequila, which reflects the purest expression of the 100% pure agave flavour. Crystal clear with a medium body and cooked agave, hints of citrus and herbaceous notes on nose. Soft and gentle on the palate, yet with much character. Full agave flavor, hints of fruit (especially Granny Smith apples and pears) in the long, lingering aftertaste
Where the agave meets the wood. Double distilled in traditional pot stills and rested in ex-bourbon oak casks for 8 months to achieve a well-balanced tequila reflecting a subtle balance between agave and wood spices, without losing its freshness. Light amber color with a medium body. Delicious light hints of wood, while the cooked agave still plays the major role in this reposado’s aroma. Light and smooth on the palate. The wood adds spiciness perfecting its personality. Notes of roasted peppers and fresh figs complete the experience. Light wood notes, big agave presence, and well-balanced spiciness.
A new level of complexity. Full bodied with a medium to dark amber color. On the nose, lovely oak aromas marrying together with a rich touch of light vanilla and coffee. Seductively aromatic, with senses of herbs and spices. Perfectly balanced on the palate. Great aperture of wood, surrounded by multiple taste evolutions in your mouth, with expressions of cracked coffee and tobacco among them. Perfect balance between agave oak, vanilla and coffee notes.
