The journey to create El Jefe Tequila took the founders to Jalisco, Mexico, where they embarked on a relentless quest to discover and craft a tequila that would be both smooth and appealing to the American palate.
Tequila is a distilled spirit made from the cooked and fermented juice of the agave (pronounced 'Uh-Gah-Vee'), a spiky Mexican plant which resembles a cactus. Traditionally the process is labour intensive and artisanal – and many tequila distilleries still operate this way.
The journey of blanco tequila begins in the sun-drenched fields of the Jalisco highlands and lowlands in Mexico, where the blue agave plant – tequila's sole botanical constituent – grows for between 6 to 10 years before reaching maturation.
Tequila is made from harvested blue agave. Then, it's cooked (we use a water-steaming process) and fermented into alcohol. The liquid is distilled twice to purify the alcohol and make it drinkable. Once this distillation process is finished—that's it—it's officially blanco tequila.Tequila is a distilled beverage made from the blue agave plant. The drink is typically composed of 40% – 60% alcohol by volume (80 – 120 proof) and is made in Mexico. Tequila is made from the heart of the agave plant, which is called the piña.Of the nearly 140 tequila distilleries in Mexico, hers is the only one that's led and operated solely by women. Melly Barajas walks through a field of blue agave plants in the Los Altos region of Jalisco, Mexico.The time that the tequila spends aging in barrel is what determines whether it will be a blanco, which is unaged, a reposado, which is aged up to a year, or an añejo, which has been aged from 1-2years.Tequila must have between 35 and 55% alcohol content (70 and 110 U.S. proof).
