LOS FUERTES

 80 PLUS

These high-proof expressions are giving agave a little extra push, exposing the fructose hidden notes that can only be unveil at a higher proof.  Our range of high-proof imports vary from the surprisingly smooth sipper, to some over-proof mixing monsters—and a few gems in between.

Our go-to Fuerte…  DON FULANO 100-PROOF  is profoundly aromatic; a tequila for the connoisseur and the epicurean. Inexplicably full of spice and flavor and yet, absolutely mellow with floral glimmers of jasmine and orange blossom; even coconut and tropical aromas are present.  This high-proof flavor profile brings a direct connection with the agave fields, with the terroir, with its patient organic fermentation and its masterful distillation in copper alembics. Full bodied and generous in its complexity, its finish is intense and prolonged

BACANORA PUNTAGAVE 90-PROOF  is perhaps the purest artisanal spirit on the Planet: Wild Silvestre agave hearts are packed out by burro, taken from rich red soil pure spring-fed water; fire; wild yeasts and copper stills. That’s it. Nada mas. The high proof makes it most conducive to use as a finishing spirit, but the PUNTAGAVE BACANORA terroir comes through nonetheless. This belongs on the shelves of spirit aficionados and agave lovers alike.”   Tasting Notes:  Distinctively floral with light notes of smoke, mid-palate hints of citrus, plus deeper traces of smoke. The strong acidity & high-proof makes exceptional cocktails.

PUNTAGAVE ARTISANAL 82-PROOF

PUNTAGAVE ARTISANAL Mezcal is produced in the region of Yautepec Oaxaca where our fully mature Espadin agaves are cooked in a traditional earth pit for 3 days. We use the Tahona stone ancestral method to extract the juice from the cooked agave and naturally ferment each batch with our own proprietary yeast. Fermentation takes place on wooden open-tanks for 15 days.  The Artisanal line of Puntagave is bottled in a handmade ceramic decanter and our corks are made with the aged and cured corks we use in our barrels. Unlike glass bottles, the ceramic decanter allows the distilled spirit to evolve over time. The Ceramic homogenizes volatile particles and disperses into a fluid state smoothing and settling the tasting profile furthermore.

PUNTAGAVE RUSTICO 84-PROOF

PUNTAGAVE RUSTICO MEZCAL is produced in the town of Matatlan Oaxaca. Mezcal in general uses a more ancient form of distillation that has retained deep ties to indigenous cultures across the country, while tequila is made from one variety of agave. Mezcal’s allure is that it can be made from a wide range of varieties that, much like wine-grapes, look and taste unique and respond differently to environment.  Most traditional Mezcals are made from Agave Espadin like ours, although some mezcal producers blend agave varieties to create a distinct flavor.  Mezcal traditionally has a unique, smoky flavor that makes it fairly easy to distinguish from tequila. It also tends to taste sweeter, richer, and smoke-filled than tequila.  The biggest difference between tequila and mezcal is that when tequila is made, the agave head is baked mainly in autoclaves or in an above-ground oven. Mezcal producers, however, often follow the traditional method of using underground pits. A fire is started and burns for about 24 hours to heat the volcanic stones that line the pit. The agave heads are put into the pit and then covered with moist fiber that is left over from the fermentation process. A layer of agave leaves or woven palm leaves cover the fibers and the agave heads are left to cook two to three days.

Why You Want over-Proof in your bar

They’re shooting for the sweet spot of fiery but still drinkable.” Salud!!!

Named after a hill range in the area called 'Cerro de la Charanda' where the first distillery was built in the region. Charanda is a term in Purépecha language meaning 'red-colored soil'.
