The DÉCADA distillery has been owned and operated by the same family for over 150 years. Here, in the highlands of the small town of “San Francisco De Asis”, on 1,000 acres of brick red soil and agave, grow the finest piñas in the industry. The property sits almost 10,000 feet above sea-level which is the highest elevation known to grow agave. This particular agave takes an average of ten years to meet its maturity, which is four years longer than most areas. The higher elevation and climate conditions necessitate this extra time for good reason: it increases the brix (sugar) content of the agave which creates the flavor in the plants that leads to DÉCADA’s one of a kind soft and fruity profile. Once DÉCADA’s agave are harvested by the Jimadors they are cooked in steel ovens that are sealed from contaminates found in more traditional clay ovens that can create a more bitter taste in addition to an uneven cook which leads to less extraction. In filtration a process called “OZONE” is used in which pure oxygen is added during this process to simultaneously aerate and purify leading to a smooth finish, and clean taste without a burn. 100% de agave. 40% alc/vol. 750 ML. 80 Proof.
