Product description

Caballito Cerrero Blanco "Azul" 46%, Jan 2019 Aromas of sweet bright green agave fruit, freshly wet salted limestone. Notes of cracked white pepper, anise and a milk chocolatesque finish. This is a family business consisting of fifteen different generations, producing “Vino del Mezcal” for 400 years, and within the last 70 years (4 generations) under the brand "Caballito Cerrero". They were the first and for a long time the only producer in the region who purposefully rejected using term “Tequila". This is because the Jiménez family feel they do not need the help by the marketing strength of the word “Tequila” and that their knowledge and respect of agave spirits is more than enough required. The very particular focus on solely harvesting mature agave - “sazon" (very ripe) - which they both grow and own exclusively. This helps to create the stand-alone quality and exceptional flavor of these products. Together combined, they feel, this is the vital lifeline and the foundation of which they have always stood on as long-term hyper-artisanal agave spirits producers. Caballito Cerrero is located well off the beaten path in Amatitán, at the rustic and picturesque Santa Rita distillery. This distillery is situated a quarter mile above the famed Cielo Abierto, a site UNESCO has recognizing as the oldest agave spirits production in the region, dating back to the mid-16th century. From an uphill spring, running alongside Santa Rita, pure mineral water flows unaided by but aqueduct, into the distillery. This is a very important marker when speaking of and measuring quality. Thus here lives a truly remote spectacle in the where prized water has been in connection with the agave harmoniously for the past 400 years.
