100% Puro de Agave, sourced entirely from the Tequila Valley, Aged for 5 months in Ex-Jack Daniels Barrels and bottled at 44.5% ABV
ElVelo is brought to life by respecting and transparently highlighting every step of the production process - from the sourcing, quality and cut of the Agaves, to the final proof. The Reposado is bottled at 44.5% ABV - higher proof, for best expression of Agave in cocktail, but also showcasing distinct oak character.
ElVelo Reposado has been rested in Ex-Jack Daniels Barrels for 5 months – achieving the right balance of Agave and Oak. Overall, ElVelo is a higher proof, traditionally made, and Valley sourced Tequila - developed and tested specifically to showcase big agave character in cocktails. No additives, no shortcuts, no industrial practices, just Big Bold Agave Character.
ElVelo Tequila celebrates the distinctive character of the Tequila Valley - 100% Puro de Agave, sourced entirely from its Volcanic-Rich soils. Conceived in collaboration with second-generation Master Distiller Carlos Hernandez Ramos of La Cofradia, with the goal of producing a Tequila that makes the very best cocktails - from the Margarita, to the Paloma, to the Rosita, and beyond.
The Blue Agave used in the production of ElVelo comes solely from the "Valley" of Tequila within the state of Jalisco - directly surrounding the town of Tequila itself. Called the “Valley” or “Valles” because of its lower elevation, sitting at roughly 1,200 meters above sea level; still fairly high in elevation, however not nearly as high as the "Highlands" or “Los Altos” which sits around 2,000 - 2,500 meters.
ElVelo comes in a 1L format, higher proof at 44.5% ABV, traditionally produced (no diffusers, autoclaves, additives, etc...), unadulterated, BIG full flavored pure Valley profile tequila.
