Tequila Celestial Silver

Tequila Celestial Silver is 100% Blue Agave produced in Amatitan, Jalisco. Celestial Silver is double distilled providing a light-bodied kiss of Agave perfection, perfect for tasting and perfect for mixing.

For over 60 years the Montes family has been perfecting the craft of producing small batches of hand man artisan tequilas. Tequila Celestial was born of this rich history passed down through four generations. Our blue agave plants are grown on a single estate owned and run by these 4th generation agave farmers and distillers. Our land has more than 2,000 acres of sustainably maintained agave plants in the low-land of Amatitan, Mexico. We harvest only the most mature plants, often taking 8-10 years to reach the right size.

After harvest, our hand selected piñas are traditionally baked in stone ovens, bringing out the agave’s natural sweetness and robust flavor. Sweet agave juice is then pressed from the baked piñas, filtered and fermented 100% naturally without yeast, taking 7-10 days longer than yeast enhanced fermentation. The extra time is worth the wait, producing some of the smoothest and best tasting tequila available at any price. For added purity, our tequilas are double distilled in stainless vats, and then clarified through cold filtration. Double distillation maintains the flavor profiles of the sweet agave without leaving a strong alcohol essence in the palate. Finally, our tequilas are estate bottled using triple filtered well water that only enhances the sweet top notes of each variety.

In a marketplace full of competition, I try to stay updated on most of the new tequilas introduced, but some definitely slip through the cracks. While, I am not at all familiar with the brand, it comes from a good distillery (NOM 1480) that produces good juices like Don Abraham and Puro Verde.

Aroma: Nice cooked agave notes with floral & earthy compliments.
Initial Taste: A very nice agave flavor up front with just a hint of cement/earth notes.
Body: An oily mouth feel…very full. The sweet notes are complimented by a full flavor of peppery goodness. Well rounded.
Finish: A medium-long linger with very strong earthy & peppery notes to go with the lingering agave sweetness.

While this tequila has some lowland type notes and a hint of earthy bitterness, it works really well with the agave sweetness and the peppery notes at the back of the palate. It’s very well rounded and oily. A consummate blanco sipper, but would also work well in a mixed drink. This was a very nice introduction from Celestial Tequila.
