Founded by long-time agave cultivator and distiller David Ravandi, 123 Organic Tequila is an artisan producer of certified organic tequilas made from estate-grown lowland agaves northeast of Guadalajara in Jalisco, Mexico. Ten-year-old, slowly ripened agaves are cooked for two days in traditional stone ovens to concentrate flavor, then double-distilled using a small-batch process. The distillery’s philosophy shines in the liquid itself: A paradigmatic expression of pure agave flavor.
This unaged “mother spirit” tequila boasts clean, powerful aromas of fresh agave and lemon peel, black pepper, and minerals. Silky smooth, it finishes long with a mildly sweet kick. Simple, organic cocktails or relaxed sipping best expresses this Blanco tequila’s quality and purity.
