There are two major agave growing regions for tequila, the highlands (Los Altos) and the tequila valley at 3,700 meters above sea level. For years producers and consumers have been debating which agave produces the best tequila? One thing is for certain, that the rich red soil (terroir) from the highlands is very porous and the rain water filters right-through, leaving these agaves extremely stress for survival. Highland agave yields the highest grades of sugar content. There is a popular claim that the highlands rich soil produces a sweeter, more citrus, and fruitier-tasting profile. PUNTAGAVE Tequila is produced in Los Altos with highland-grown agave in the town of Jesus Maria Jalisco.”
