Tequila ArteNOM Selección de 1579 – Blanco

Unaged and Agave-Forward

Craft­ed in the moun­tain town of Jesús María by mas­ter dis­tiller Felipe Camare­na, this tequi­la comes from one of the high­est-alti­tude agave regions of Jalis­co, Mexico.


Selec­ción de 1579 comes from the cool high­lands, 6,788 feet above sea lev­el. This cli­mate stress­es the agave plants, result­ing in slow­er growth and bet­ter fla­vor con­cen­tra­tion. Selec­ción de 1579 blan­co tequi­la is pure and clear, with rich agave vis­cos­i­ty. It has a bold roast­ed agave scent with a touch of mint and spring rain. On the palate, it is vel­vety, wine-like with a fresh chile tin­gle, and pos­sess­es notes of white pep­per and spearmint.


Because blan­co tequi­las are usu­al­ly only aged a few weeks to two months, they are the fresh­est tequi­las and there­fore pair best with cit­rus — espe­cial­ly lime — fla­vors, seafood, and a bit of spice. Try drink­ing this tequi­la neat with ceviche or a plat­ter of sushi, spicy drag­on rolls front and center. 

For the cock­tail enthu­si­asts in the room, make your­self a clas­sic Palo­ma: two parts blan­co tequi­la, one part lime, then top off your ice-filled high­ball glass with grape­fruit soda and a pinch of salt. Or, for a bit of local fla­vor, mix up a T&T — tamarind and tequi­la — by stir­ring togeth­er one part tamarind nec­tar and one part blan­co tequi­la. Top the glass off with ice, gin­ger ale, and sim­ple syrup to taste. You’re good for the afternoon!


I’m not in the busi­ness of mak­ing fan­cy bot­tles. I’m in the busi­ness of mak­ing great tequi­la,” says Felipe Camare­na. he dis­tills Selec­ción de 1579 for ArteNOM, but he is also known for his own fam­i­ly tequi­la, the G4 line of Des­til­ería El Pandil­lo. Named after the favorite bull of Felipe’s grand­fa­ther and the tahona stone that was part of the family’s first attempt at a dis­tillery dur­ing the Mex­i­can Rev­o­lu­tion, the dis­tillery has been in busi­ness since 1937. They use tra­di­tion­al stone ovens to cook their agave for almost 24 hours, then dis­till the tequi­la in gen­er­a­tions-old cop­per stills. Noth­ing goes to waste in this envi­ron­men­tal­ly con­scious dis­tillery. Steam from the stills is piped for use in oth­er parts of the pro­duc­tion process, the used agave plants are repur­posed into fer­til­iz­er, and Felipe even cre­at­ed a recy­cled steam­roller to go over the agave. Such is the work of a duti­ful, respon­si­ble mas­ter distiller.
