Master Distiller Arturo Fuentes Cortes has been producing proper Tequila for a while, diligently working on the perfect recipe. Growing up in the shadow of the Tequila volcano in the town of Tequila, it was only natural. Once he had captured the true essence of Mexico in Spirit form, all he needed was a brand. Enter Rooster Rojo, the red rooster, a symbol of Mexico. Locally-crafted from the finest agave juice, Arturo's Tequila is lovingly made at the Fabrica de Tequilas Finos distillery that operates from an old colonial building.
This premium Tequila is made from 100% blue Weber agaves from the Los Altos region. Cut and cooked for 10 hours with the help of steam, the juice is then fermented with the distiller's special yeast strain and distilled twice in stainless steel pot stills. After being filtered through Mexican silver for a sumptuously smooth profile, this Añejo is matured in 200-liter used American Oak Bourbon casks for more than 12 months. Cock-a-doodle-downright-impressive!
