Clasico de Centinela
PRODUCT: Clasico de Centinela Blanco
Hacienda El Centinela has been producing tequila on the outskirts of Arandas, Jalisco, since the company was founded in 1904. It was the first distillery in the Highlands region. Today they still hand harvest, distill and age their locally farmed agave using many of the same artisanal methods that have been lovingly passed down the family from one generation to the next.
Clasico de Centinela is made with 100% Blue Agave from Los Altos Jalisco (the Highlands) that have been hand picked and harvested by the expert Jimadores. Agaves are handpicked after waiting 8 years to mature, and are cooked in clay ovens. It is distilled using an old traditional process using the agave fiber to deliver more "esencia de agave." The result of this process is more pronounced agave notes, a vibrant tequila with exquisite character and complexity, providing recognition to Mexico's most admired plant: the blue agave.
