For nearly a thousand years, Monte Albán existed as an influential Zapotec center in Mesoamerica. It was here that Spanish conquistadors first discovered the local fermented agave drink called “pulque.” From that native spirit, the Spaniards created “mescal” which led to today’s tequila. In honor of tequila’s heritage, we offer ultra-smooth Monte Alban® Silver and Reposado 100% agave tequilas.
The blue Weber agave used to create Monte Alban®100% Agave Tequila comes from the two most important zones within the Mexican state of Jalisco—the Tequila Valley and the Region de Los Altos de Jalisco. It is the mixture of agave from these two distinctive geographic regions that gives Monte Alban its unique herbal characteristics. All of our agave is cooked within 36 hours of harvest. Monte Alban is exclusively double distilled in traditional alembics where the steam is never in contact with the fermented agave juice. After distillation, Monte Alban Silver is stored in stainless steel tanks before it’s bottled.
