The Sierra distillery is located in Valle de Tequila (Tequila Valley) with Agave fields which stand 2300m above sea level. Boasting state-of-the-art facilities at the century-old hacienda site in Jalisco, Mexico, Sierra is being recognized for the skill and craftsmanship involved in its creation.
Tequila must (by laws established and enforced by the CRT
(Consejo Regulador Del Tequila) be produced exclusively from
the blue agave – Agave Tequila Weber Azul. In this way, it differs
from the broader category of agave plant distillates, such as sotol
and mescal – tequila is in many ways seen as the peak of the
craft, hence its heavily protective regulation.
Agave plants must be harvested between 8-12 years of their growth cycle, whence their sharp, spiny leaves are cut off, leaving the bulbous heart of the plant, the piña. The piñas are placed into stainless autoclaves to be steamed, releasing the juices or aguamiel of the piña. This resulting juice is fermented with yeast and subsequently distilled to produce 100% agave tequila, or with cane sugars added at a maximum 49% of the mix to produce regular tequila.

SIERRA TEQUILA SILVER
Sierra Tequila Silver is a mature, clear tequila. Its full, fruity, fresh aroma dominated by a subtle chilli note reflects the Tequilana Weber Azul Agave and also contains slight hints of green apple and young pineapple. Nuances of pepper give Sierra Tequila Silver that certain something, making it a feisty tequila.

SIERRA TEQUILA CAFE
Sierra Tequila Café fuses the elemental forces of handcrafted Sierra Tequila Blanco and Mexican coffee and crowns them with high-quality vanilla. Blue agave plants from the highlands, volcanic soil, double distillation in copper kettles and the knowledge of three generations of the same Mexican family preserve the fruity tequila taste while the full-bodied coffee and smooth vanilla turn this drink into a real highlight for the taste buds – pure, with fresh milk or mixed.
Toasted coffee, nutty nougat and herbal notes and spices, leading to flavours of natural roasted Mexican coffee on the palate, tropical fruit and lightly peppery agave notes.
