Cuestión Tequila

Cuestión Tequila is produced from 100% Weber Blue Agave, in the Highlands (Los Altos) of Jalisco, Mexico. This challenging environment provides for higher sugar content and more robust flavor. When the agave has grown for up to 10 years to reach full maturity, the hearts of the agave, or piñas, are harvested and hand selected by our jimadores to be taken to our distillery (NOM 1479). The piñas are then split and slowly cooked in an autoclave for 7-10 hours to break down the fiber and caramelize the agave. This process gives us the cleanest and purist by-product without contaminants of fuel, propellants, or carcinogens . From there, we mill the agave followed by up to a 96 hour fermentation process to give us our wort, or “mosto”. The mosto is then distilled twice in copper pots yielding our blanco, which we either prepare for bottling, or set aside to barrel in used Tennessee whiskey barrels. The portion that is barreled will rest for 9 months to produce our reposado, or age for 18 months to produce our añejo.
