The Volcan Cristalino Tequila is a blend of añejo (aged) and extra-añejo tequila, crafted from 100% Jalisco lowland Weber blue agave. The añejo tequila was aged in Glenmorangie whiskey casks, and the extra-añejo was aged in Hennessy cognac casks. The tequilas are meticulously filtered, then blended.
This Cristalino Tequila by Volcan De Mi Tierra has a bright and clear quality, with rich and robust flavors, and an ABV of 40%. On the nose, it exudes aromas of dried fruits, tobacco, chocolate, and vanilla. Unique and elegant, it gives flavors of caramel and tobacco, with notes of dark chocolate, and a silky finish on the palate.
The Volcan Cristalino Tequila is best enjoyed neat, or on the rocks. It’s great to pair with raw seafood, like ceviche and oysters, but best sipped on its own.
Volcan de mi Tierra is named after the “Volcan de Tequila,” an actual volcano in the Mexican state of Jalisco. This volcano erupted 200,000 years ago, sculpting the geography and topography of Jalisco. The area was coated with rich volcanic soil after the eruption, making it perfect for the cultivation of blue agave. The volcanic ash generated a soil rich in basalt and iron, which gives Volcan tequila its distinct flavor. The agave is then transformed into tequila through a perfect combination of tradition and modernity.
The Volcan de mi Tierra tequila’s richness derives from combining the various flavors of highland and lowland agave, combining the best of both locations into an exceptional drink. They wait and watch as the agave sweetens in the sun, just like generations before us. Then, using a mampostery oven and gradual fermentation in wood tanks, together with cutting-edge techniques, a tequila with unrivaled flavor and aroma is created.
Store your bottle upright in a cool, dark place, ideally between 12 and 15°C. Unopened bottles can last for an indefinite amount of time, but once opened, this liquor should be consumed within the year.
