Casa 1921 Tequila announced today the company’s recent move to its new production facility, Destileria Morales. Destileria Morales resides in Arandas, located in the “Los Altos” region of the state of Jalisco, Mexico. This state of the art facility is the work of renowned Mexican engineer Leopoldo Solis Tinoco. The facility is a true work of art marrying in perfect harmony a contemporary design with all of the traditional elements of Tequila production.
Juan Collado, President of Casa 1921 offers some insight: “This has been a big transition for us. I do however; understand that a change like this will bring many questions, doubts, and opinions, both now and in the future. Tequila 1921 is a brand supported by a team of individuals with a high degree of professionalism and integrity. Our consumer’s satisfaction will always be our top priority. The core of our new product is of superior quality. Our master distiller, Lorena Arriaga is continuously working on the elaborate process to develop the flavors and aromas of our ultra-premium Tequilas”. Lorena Arriaga has been with Casa 1921 since 1999. Casa 1921 has experienced great success with it’s line-up of ultra-premium Tequilas. This move was necessary because of that success and is a testament to the extraordinary direction the brand is going. Casa 1921 is extremely excited about the new partnership with Destileria Morales.
The “Limited Production” process used to produce Tequila 1921 for the past decade will not change. Only the finest estate grown blue agaves are selected for harvest. These agaves are baked in stone brick ovens. The cooking process consists of 3 phases stretched over a 72 hour period; a gentle steam cooking phase, a resting phase, and a cooling phase with the oven doors open. Gentle pressing rather than shredding is used as the extraction method of choice. The temperature is monitored closely during a dual fermentation process and distillation, thus rendering a superior distillate. Tequila 1921 Reposado and Añejo are aged in new premium American oak barrels, bearing a medium char. These barrels are charred through a process known as “Barrel Profiling”. Robert Plotkin, well-respected spirits authority and tequila aficionado said of the new 1921 line-up, “People looking for tequilas that will gently seduce their senses, 1921 100% Agave Tequilas are the ticket. Across the board, these artisanal spirits are a sophisticated treat, worthy of grand cru status.”
