The award winning Dulce Vida Tequila sources its 100% organic agave from the Los Altos highlands in the Jalisco region of Mexico. They are the only 100° proof, 100% organic tequila in the world. Dulce Vida uses Tequilana Blue Weber Agave plants that are approximately 6’ tall and about 8 years old. The agave piñas are slow-roasted in stainless steel autoclaves for approximately 20 hours. Then these piñas are milled, washed and added with their proprietary yeast strain for slow, open-air fermentation at ambient temperature. Finally Master Distiller Carlos Jurado, distills it in small batches.
Light Amber/Saffron in color, Dulce Vida Tequila Extra Anejo is a celebratory Limited Edition rested for just over five years in wine casks from a respected Napa Valley winery. The result is a unique, complex spirit with soft aromas of baked pear, fruit pastry, honey and pepper emerge from the glass. Rich flavors of caramel, nougat, toffee and agave lead to a sweet, port like finish.
