ElVelo Tequila celebrates the distinctive character of the Tequila Valley - 100% Puro de Agave, sourced entirely from its Volcanic-Rich soils.
Conceived in collaboration with second-generation Master Distiller Carlos Hernandez Ramos of La Cofradia, with the goal of producing a Tequila that makes the very best cocktails - from the Margarita, to the Paloma, to the Rosita, and beyond. The Blue Agave used in the production of ElVelo comes solely from the "Valley" of Tequila within the state of Jalisco - directly surrounding the town of Tequila itself. Called the “Valley” or “Valles” because of its lower elevation, sitting at roughly 1,200 meters above sea level; still fairly high in elevation, however not nearly as high as the "Highlands" or “Los Altos” which sits around 2,000 - 2,500 meters.
The soil content and terroir of the Valley is also distinctively different. Much of this region was coated in ash from volcanic eruptions occurring over 200,000 years ago. These eruptions carried with them high concentrations of the volcanic rocks Basalt, Andesite, and Rhyolite - creating a very unique soil and substrate from which the Agave is grow
ElVelo comes in a 1L format, higher proof at 44.5% ABV, traditionally produced (no diffusers, autoclaves, additives, etc...), unadulterated, BIG full flavored pure Valley profile tequila.
Tasting Notes: ElVelo Tequila Blanco showcases aromas of fresh cut grass, cinnamon and ripe cherries. On the palate, layers of stone fruits, cooked agave, spearmint and limestone lead to a clean and dry finish.
