Olmeca Blanco Tequila: A Deep Dive into a Mexican Classic

Olmeca Blanco is a silver tequila, a cornerstone of the tequila world, produced in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico, by the renowned Olmeca brand. This unaged expression offers a vibrant taste profile, perfect for those seeking a crisp and clean tequila experience.

A Legacy Etched in Silver

Olmeca takes its name from the ancient Olmec civilization, a nod to Mexico's rich history and heritage. Their Blanco tequila is crafted using traditional methods, ensuring a spirit that embodies the essence of this iconic beverage.

Production Process: Where Tradition Meets Quality

Olmeca Blanco's journey begins with hand-picked Weber Blue Agave plants, meticulously selected for their maturity and quality. These agave hearts are then slow-cooked in authentic brick ovens, a technique that unlocks their natural sweetness. Following fermentation with a proprietary yeast strain, the tequila is double distilled in small copper pot stills. This meticulous process allows for exceptional purity and a nuanced flavour profile.

Tasting Notes: Unveiling the Essence of Agave

Aroma:  Olmeca Blanco's initial aroma is invigorating, characterised by fresh herbal notes of mint and grassy meadows. Hints of green pepper add a touch of complexity, while a subtle citrus zest provides a refreshing lift.

Palate:  The first sip is crisp and clean, showcasing the tequila's purity. Agave sweetness takes centre stage, balanced by gentle hints of smokiness imparted by the brick oven cooking. As the tequila develops on the palate, subtle peppery notes emerge, adding a touch of warmth. The finish is smooth and slightly sweet, lingering with a pleasant taste of honey.
