Olmeca Altos Añejo Tequila
The brand behind it all
Olmeca Altos is an incredibly well loved tequila brand in the bar industry. It was first released in 2016 and was started by two renowned bartenders from London, Henry Besant and Dre Masso. They set out to make the perfect tequila for bartenders, something that was high quality and perfect for sipping but also well suited for use in cocktails.
Created in Los Altos (or ‘Highlands’), a region within the state of Jalisco, Olmeca Altos’ distillery location, 2,100 metres above sea level, was chosen based on its notorious highland climate that makes for the best quality agaves. The volcanic rich red soil that characterises this area is a key element for Olmeca Altos’ tequila profile: spicy with a fruity bouquet, usually more rounded and naturally sweet. All of Olmeca Altos’ agave is cooked in brick ovens for three days, before being roller milled and using the 400 year old, traditional wheel-press or Tahona to preserve and achieve a blend of punchiness and smoothness.
As a company, Olmeca Altos works hard to remain as sustainable as they can be and the distillery recycles 99% of all its solid waste. In addition to that, they redesigned their iconic glass bottle to reduce the glass weight by 20%, thus reducing CO2 emissions by 20%.
