Savor the award-winning tequila that has placed first in spirits competitions across the country: Olmeca Altos Tequila Plata. Made from 100 percent blue agave grown in Mexico's Los Altos highlands region, this tequila features herbal agave notes with a slightly sweet and citric flavor that balances nicely with its fruity aroma. A classic tequila for the modern world, Olmeca Altos Tequila Plata is the one you want on hand for crafting your favorite margaritas and other cocktails.
Master Distiller Jesus Hernandez creates Olmeca Altos using traditional methods that start with a slow-cooking brick oven. The process involves roasting the piñas and crushing them with a stone wheel before distilling the product in small copper pot stills. Hernandez also uses cultivated yeast instead of the commercial or wild yeast competitors often use, helping the brand stand out from the crowd.
Olmeca Altos Tequila Plata is fruity and sweet on the nose with hints of oak and vanilla among the citrus. It offers a smooth, rounded flavor profile with plenty of nutmeg, allspice, oak and crème brulee for a long, smoky and caramel-like finish. To enjoy this tequila at home, buy it online at Drizly and have it delivered to your door or pick it up in store.
