Spirit Type: Reposado
Proof: 80 proof
Agave: Tequilana Weber
NOM: Nom. 1414
Cooking: Stone/Brick Ovens
Fermentation: Steel tanks; Siembra Azul fermentation, like every tequila made at NOM 1414, is serenaded by classical music. The yeast, which is specially designed for tequila production (hence Induced), seems to respond to the rhythm as it bubbles in large steel tanks. It’s not exactly traditional, but the yeast is having a good time.
Tasting Notes: A hint of vanilla and char open up the nose. It's has an inherent sweetness to balances a wonderful citrus oak note. The palate is peppery, vegetal and sweet stewed agave. This all finishes with notes of fresh cut sugar cane and white pepper.
This spirit epitomizes the balance of wood and agave.
About: Siembra Azul’s agave is sown in the red clay soil of the Highlands region of Jalisco, where proud tequileros produce approachable, citrusy tequilas. Produced at the Vivanco family distillery in Arandas, Siembra Azul explores the impact of music in production and highlights the Highlands’ distinctive terroir. Every agave used in both of this expression’s constituent tequilas was grown on the same plantation. The terroir presents differently after their respective productions, but the blend is a layered experience in the terroir of that single plantation, La Poblada.
This reposado features the American oak barrels that started it all, inside and out. The background pays homage to the plateau that lifts the highlands region some 8,000 feet above sea level.
