Founded by long-time agave cultivator and distiller David Ravandi, 123 Tequila is an artisan producer of certified organic tequilas made from estate-grown lowland agaves northeast of Guadalajara in Jalisco, Mexico. Ten-year-old, slowly ripened agaves are cooked for two days in traditional stone ovens to concentrate flavor, fermented with ambient yeast, then double-distilled in a stainless steel alembic still. The blanco gives lush aromas of honeydew melon, lemon peel and fresh cut grass. Sweet agave fruit on the entry, with a lean medium bodied texture. Nice long finish with some wet slate and black pepper. This is a wonderfully satisfying sipper.
