ArteNOM Selección de 1579 Tequila Blanco
Introducing the newest addition to Jake Lustig's ArteNOM portfolio, the deliciously fruit-forward blanco expression from NOM 1579. The mountain town of Jesús-María (elev. 6,079’) is tequila’s highest altitude agave region, and the El Pandillo Distillery is arguably one of the most forward-thinking and sustainable distilleries in the business. There, Felipe Camarena masterfully crafts this bright, aromatic tequila from stressed hillside agave plants, slowly roasted in brick ovens and macerated intact with fiber for a pronounced agave flavor. It's an instant classic.
Clear color. Tropical aromas of sweet passion fruit, cilantro sofrito, apricot kernel and honeydew, and grilled orange and cocoa nibs with a round, lively, fruity light body and a peppery, complex, medium-long Maria cookies with guava frosting, agave nectar and sunflower seeds, earthy hot pepper sauce, and roasted carrot and dried orange peel finish. A very tropical nose leads to an earthy palate in this complex and zesty blanco tequila.
