The Original by Porfidio aims to go beyond regular 100% agave tequila. In terms of quality, 'The Original by Porfidio' is considered by many to be the ultimate in the art of tequila making, despite not actually being classified as a tequila. The Original by Porfidio is made from 100% Blue Agave, not simply 100% Agave. It is made only from first-growth blue agave from the geographically delimited Jalisco region in Mexico, and is therefore Super-Jalisco. The Original by Porfidio is therefore not simply a “100% Agave Tequila”, but a “100% Blue Agave Super-Jalisco”. Super-Jalisco has half the methanol content of the industry average for 100% tequilas, as it is produced via enzymatic hydrolysis, not heat hydrolysis. The Original by Porfidio is distilled with state-of-the-art German Hollstein Alembic equipment, rather than traditional Mexican alembics. The Original by Porfidio is continuously aged in virgin oak barrels throughout the entire ageing period, not simply processed with a virgin oak barrel finish. Finest quality, Japanese-made hand-blown glass bottle.
Each cactus bottle is an individual piece of art; no two bottles are ever identical.
