Tequila Pasote has quickly gained its reputation in Australia as a delicious Tequila. It's 100% Agave, Artesanally produced and made in small batches by the reputable Felipe Camarena. Felipe, often referred to as "the mad scientist" combines his family heritage of 4 generations of Tequila production with his engineering background and passion for the environment to create a sustainable and efficient distillery in the highlands of Jalisco.
One of the main resources when distilling Tequila is water which puts an incredible strain on the environment; On average, it takes 10 litres of water to produce 1 litre of Tequila. Felipe's distillery has been built to capture the naturally running rain water to utilize in his production. Tequila Pasote is comprised of 40% rainwater and 60% spring water which gives this Tequila and incredible nose and palate; the fresh rain water offering a minerality and earthiness you won't find in most Tequilas.
The Camarena family are also behind Tequila Ocho, a renowned brand amongst Tequila drinkers and enthusiasts. Tequila Pasote and Tequila Ocho are both single estate grown and produced Tequilas. Felipe grows and harvests his agaves locally from his own fields within Jesus Maria where his distillery lies. The true essence of terroir is delivered through this single estate experience which is accentuated through artesanal production methods and the craft of Felipe Camarena's production style.
