AQARA AGAVE DE LOS ANDES
PREMIUM ARTISANAL AGAVE SPIRIT
AQARÁ was born in the land of Andean agaves,
at 2,256 meters above sea level.
We are nestled between mountain ranges and fed by glacier waters of the Tropical Andes.
The agave plant has been part of the natural landscape of the Andes for thousands of years, withstanding severe climatic conditions and tolerating poor and shallow soils. In these areas, agaves have been asleep for myriad years waiting for its people to discover them and enjoy the intrinsic benefits they provide. Harvested before it produces a once-in-a-lifetime inflorescence event, our agave changes its destiny as our people transform fields of mature agave into a beautiful spirit that pays tribute to its place of origin, allowing it to live forever in our memories.
1. "JIMA"We select each agave plant with responsibility and care, calculating its ages an brim degrees. We harvest and chop them by hand. For each agave plant we harvest we plant three.
Cooked for seven hours in the head of the steam, without direct contact with the fire, the pieces of agave release their essence and begin the transformation.
We wait seventy two hours, patiently, for the magic of the yeast inside our fermenters. The previous step to the agave rebirth.3. 4."DISTILLATION"
We distill doubly, sacrificing head and tails to obtain a high quality alcohols. In each drop, we preserve flavors and aromas.
We rest, filter and bottle up.
