The Sierra Milenario Tequila is a handcrafted 100% de agave tequila manufactured at the family-owned Destilerías Sierra Unidas in Jalisco, Mexico. The story of Sierra Milenario stretches back to the time of the ancient Mexican gods. Back then, the creator god Quetzalcoatl fought with the goddess of darkness, who had engulfed the light of the sun god. In her anger, the goddess of darkness killed the creator god’s wife. As the tears of the creator god fell on his wife’s grave, the shoots of a beautiful agave grew from the earth. He killed the goddess of darkness and the sunlight returned to the earth, ripening the agave. Mayahuel, the goddess of the agave, would henceforth bestow a unique liquid on the world and make him happy once more.
Harvested by hand, triple selection process.
In Guadalajara, Jalisco, where the tears of Quetzalcoatl struck the mineral-rich highlands, the Sierra distillery and master distiller Rodolfo Gonzalez Gonzalez today produce the 100% agave range Sierra Milenario using traditional methods. In the sun-drenched, low-precipitation climate, the highland agaves grow free from artificial fertilizer or industrial irrigation for a Long period of time until they are harvested by hand. A special distinction of the art of crafting Sierra Milenario Tequila is the triple selection process, which ensures the agaves’ rich content harvested from the highlands of Los Altos. After slowly cooking the agaves for around 24 hours, only the juice from the first, gentle pressing is used. For the subsequent fermentation, a secret family recipe yields the special pineapple yeast. The following distillation in traditional copper pot stills and the different aging processes in either American white oak or French limousine oak barrels guarantee the exceptional quality of the Sierra Milenario tequila range.
Zodiac signs represent the different characters.
The Sierra Milenario Tequila range comprises of six different qualities. Every single one is represented by a Mayan zodiac sign, embodying the Mesoamerican culture with its zodiac sign, its color world and its traditional way of crafting tequila. In the pursuit of perfections and sovereignty, the “drink of the gods” is today available all over the world.
