HOW REAL ZEPEDA TEQUILA IS CREATED
Why exactly is Real Zepeda so smooth?
What gives it that delicious, slightly smoky taste?
There are 5 differences in our process that make us stand out.
We age our agaves for a full seven years before they are harvested.
Additionally, our jimadors, or agave harvesters, cut much closer to the heart of the agave, the piña, than the industry standard.
While both of these steps take much more time and resources, the result is a much higher-quality tequila.
We remove more harmful alcohols in our distillation process than the industry standard.
These types of alcohols, known as "heads" and "tails," take more time and energy to remove, but the result is a much more pure and drinkable tequila.
We let our tequila age longer than the norm to ensure the best taste.
Our reposado tequila is aged for 6 months or more when norm only requires 2 months.
Our artisanal cooking process allows us to not only gives our tequila a slightly smoky flavor but helps to make a tequila that is much more friendly to the body.
The quality of our barrels makes the difference.
We age our tequilas in white oak barrels.
