Our search for the best Tequila in the world began decades ago. Don Jorge Olamendi tasted hundreds of Tequila's, visited many agave plantations and became a true Tequila Connoisseur. He realized that the secret for a truly great Tequila starts at the source - the plantation.
Only agave plants that can grow without the use of pesticides and other chemicals can be used to make a truly ultra premium and pure organic Tequila.
Where does Olamendi's Organic Tequila come from?
Olamendi's Organic Tequila is made from only the
finest Blue Weber Agave Plants growing in 2,ooo
acres of certified ORGANIC Agave plants along the coast
of Jalisco, Mexico.
The Agave plant has to wait 7 years until maturation so it can be used for production, however 10 years is the premium time for an agave to reach its ripest state. Waiting this long guarantees the best sugar levels for the plant to be ready for "jima", which is the process of removing agave leaves and making the root come loose.
What makes us special?
OLAMENDI'S TEQUILA IS CERTIFIED ORGANIC FROM PLANTING, HARVEST TO PRODUCTION
Don Jorge Olamendi accompanies the production process of his Organic Tequila to ensure the absolute best quality of ingredients and ultimately the best quality in the final product. We hand select the agaves used for the production of Olamendi's Organic Tequila. Only agaves free from blemishes will be selected.
During the fermentation the sugars are transformed into alcohol with the help of different kinds of yeast. The fermentation happens in large stainless steal tanks and the process takes several hours.
Olamendi's Tequila is different from all other Tequilas in that we use only the finest Organic Blue Weber Agaves. Olamendi's Tequila is certified organic not only by the USDA, but also be OKO (a German and EU Organic certifier). Our Tequila is the only Tequila on the market to have both of these certifications.
