Corralejo tequila is exclusively made with 100% Blue Weber agave, hand- harvested from our fields in the state of Guanajuato.
Because the majority of agave we use is estate-grown, we are able to ensure the highest quality from the very beginning. We start by selecting only stable and healthy shoots, or hijuelos, that are already 2-3 years old. We then plant them in a specialty soil blend that prevents imperfections common in the field.
Our agave takes 6-8 years to grow before becoming fully ripe for the harvest, or jima. At this point, our jimadors remove the leaves to leave just the piña, which is taken to the Hacienda to make into tequila.
