Tres Rios Tequila Silver
Elegant in its simplicity, Tres Rios Silver Tequila exemplifies genuine tequila in the nose and taste. It is the purest expression of the distinctive quality of Blue Agave used in its distillation. Given deliberate nurturing, Blanco releases the most unique aroma, the freshest taste and the strongest Agave flavor of the three Tres Rios products. The harvest is deferred for two years in order to fully ripen the fruits sugars, resulting in a richer honey. The Agave is then slow roasted in small brick ovens, producing unique yet pure aroma and taste. This careful, select process follows through to the pallet upon the first taste. It is a remarkable sensory experience provided exclusively by this Tlaquepaque Tequila.
The yeast in Tres Rios is allowed to ferment for 24 to 28 hours, no more, no less, to achieve the perfect balance that is observed in this fine and smooth tequila. The Ojeda family uses artesian well water from a depth of 90 meters below the surface to compliment the quality of the distillation process. After the Agave is cut, it is stacked to bake in a brick oven for 36 hours, compared to the average of 12 to 24 hours, to impart the particular nuances of Tres Rios.
