Tequila Gran Dovejo™
Tequila Gran Dovejo is a small-batch, traditionally crafted, tequila made from 100% of the finest, estate grown blue agaves that are exclusively grown and produced in the highlands of Jalisco by the Feliciano Vivanco Family.
The acidic, iron rich soil in this region known as the golden triangle of the highlands, is ideal for growing large agaves with high sugar content. At peak maturity the agave is harvested, the heart of the agave (pina) is hand selected, then slowly cooked in traditional brick ovens for a minimum of 36 hours at a temperature of 194 degrees Fahrenheit. Once roasted, they are milled in order to extract the sweet juices. The juices are isolated and then fermented with the use of “Prise de Mousse”, champagne yeast, and wild yeast strands pulled from the estate agaves themselves.
During fermentation, what has been called,“ The Mozart Method”, is used to optimize the sugar conversion. Gran Dovejo is double distilled using alembic copper pot stills.
Gran Dovejo Blanco is unaged and bottled after distillation. Our Reposado and Añejo are then aged in American white oak barrels and not bottled until the aroma, body and taste has reached the mandatory standard of our Master Distiller, Sergio Cruz.
Our Reposado is aged anywhere between 6 to 12 months, while our Añejo is aged a minimum of 12 months, but may be left to age as long as 3 years.
Expressing his craftsmanship and worthy of carrying his name, Sergio Cruz introduces his exquisite creation: Tequila Gran Dovejo. Masterfully done.
