Puntagave Artisanal possess a proprietary “Consistency of Character” through an extraordinary blend & “engineered process”. This process is achieved by the 2nd certified Maestro tequilero in the world M.T. 02 Guillermo Barroso Arnaud. Guillermo’s endeavor to produce the ultimate taste profile was hard work, producing, experimenting, and revising up to 52 batches to get to the desired profiles. The way they are today! The mindset is to produce the truest form of Tequila and Mezcal, emphasizing on a high-agave taste profile, even in our aged expression. Batch 52 is a registered trademark memorializing the number of batches and revisions it took to achieve our great tasting profile for Puntagave Artisanal.
Puntagave 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 has many layers of dried sweet fruits (dates and raisins), hazelnuts, sweets cedar and hints of standing in a flower mist. In the background are the dark herbaceous hints of tarragon and a bit of nutmeg. Puntagave Artesanal goes the extra mile and intensive labor of cleaning the volcanic rocks used to bake the pineapples in order to avoid being overpowered by oak.
