Apocalypto Tequila

Apocalypto Tequila

Apocalypto Tequila begins with a 500 year old process that starts with the careful harvesting of Blue Weber Agave by skilled jimadores. After the agaves have matured for an average of 15 years, the jimadores harvest our agave piñas with an intimate, hands-on process. The piñas selected for Apocalypto's artisan batches must possess a sugar content over 27%, substantially higher than the industry standard of 21%. Apocalypto's piñas are trimmed close to the heart to eliminate the oily-waxy taste and texture commonly found in tequilas of lesser quality.
These small details result in a final flavor and aroma that is unmatched. Carefully slow steam roasting the piñas in centuries-old brick ovens allows the sweet natural, mellow flavors of the agave to remain and flourish. Recognizing the adage that "good things take time", the fermentation process plays out like a masterful symphony. Fermenting for over 5 times longer than most, Apocalypto slowly develops a sweeter and truer full bodied agave flavor.

Award-winning Apocalypto Tequila's visually stunning half-man and half-jaguar bottle features a label depicting the traditional Mayan rite of transformation between man and jaguar, with both jaguar designs on one side, while the man side of the bottle features Maya face tattoo art.
