Clear. Herbs, tar, smoky, citrus. Beginning relatively smooth with a medium body. Then pretty rough, herby with obvious smokiness. Exits and peppery with some sugar sweetness. A tough Blanco with an unusual character - a smoky not stored tequila is hard to find.

cocktail Best enjoyed as a digestive / Avec served cool (about 14 °C) in Riedel tequila glass.

BUEN VATO is founded by the environmental engineers at AliasSmith, a company that has been working distributing Mexican spirits across Europe since 2004. Due to our sincere concern of where we are heading regarding climate change and the inevitable negative impact of the production of our beloved Mexican spirits are doing, we wanted to create a brand that solely and entirely focused in only two things: taste and the less impact possible to the environment. This to prove all the sceptical wrong and show it is a good business to aim for sustainability. We are creating this brand together with our producers in who we invest great number of hours helping them achieve a high standard of sustainability and CSR. To begin with, we are launching a Blanco and a Reposado. More products and producers joining the change of the industry are to come. Join the movement and become a Buen Vato!
Production details
The agave used in production is grown in the plains outside Amatitán just east of the town of Tequila, which often provides both citrus and herbs. The family's cows and horses graze on the agave fields which is one of the reasons herbicides and pesticides are not used.

Buen Vato Tequila Blanco is produced by Tequila Selecto the Amatitán in Santa Rosa distillery in Amatitán, Jalisco, México.

The owners have been agave growers for four generations, but after very good gains in plantations they started their own distillery.

Manufacturing and aging

The agave used in production is grown in the plains outside Amatitán just east of the town of Tequila, which often provides both citrus and herbs. Buen Vato Blanco made in a special way - agave baked extra-long and the barrels are toasted hard, giving their tequila a more or less distinct smokiness.
