Seleccion 1579 Tequila
Get prepared for a full and rich agave experience. Seleccion 1579 is made by Felipe Camarena at his distillery, El Pandillo, located in the tiny town of Jesus Maria, Jalisco, Mexico. The ArteNOM line of products, the brainchild of Jake Lustig, is totally worthy of respect and praise. His mission is to expose tequila lovers to some of the best distilleries in the industry, and El Pandillo (NOM 1579) easily makes the cut.
This tequila is made with a combination of rainwater (50%) and mineral-rich deep well water (50%). Agaves are cooked in traditional brick ovens, then crushed and distilled in copper pot stills. The blanco that comes out then goes through a 24-hour oxygenation process before it is bottled. The result is a tequila loaded with cooked agave from front to back, as well as earth, pepper, and minty aromas and flavours. It’s very oily in your mouth, and a joy to drink. We’re going to be drinking this baby all weekend long.
