Tequila Club

HISTORY


When we talk about tequila, we need to go back in time to the year 300. At that point, our Mexican ancestors were already making a naturally fermented beverage that we call “tepache”, (which, at the time, was made with the agave piña, some sugar cane and other ingredients; nowadays it’s made with pineapple, clove, anis, and piloncillo). In 1519, the Spaniards came to Mexico to conquer the land and secure its bountiful resources. When they arrived, they saw what the native people were making with the agave plant. The Spaniards then applied their knowledge of distillation to the native drink, and the production of tequila was begun.

Process

TEQUILA PRODUCTION

Extraction

Water pressure is applied on baked agave heads after they are mashed to extract the sweetness, and then squeezed in conveyor belts.

Baking

Baking of the agave core, or pińa, is done by water steam pressure, either in traditional masonry ovens or autoclaves.

Distillation

Heat and pressure are applied, separating the enzymes in the alcohol content, which produces tequila and vinasse; the latter being a waste product.

Fermentation

Fermentation is one of the most important stages of the process. During this step, the sugars are transformed into ethyl alcohol.
