Produced in the heart of Jalisco, Mexico, 901 Silver Tequila is triple distilled using the most innovative distillation methods available for fine Tequila. Perfected with over three generations of craftsmanship and more than 60 years of experience, 901 Silver is hand crafted in small batches allowing greater quality control of the Tequila. To maintain the highest level of quality, only 100% Blue Weber Agave, water, and proprietary yeast are used in 901 Tequila’s production process.
The premium agave used to give 901 its distinctive taste arrives at the distillery cleaned, cut and ready to be cooked. Each agave plant, also called a pine, weighs around 65 pounds.
Once it passes aquality controlled screening process, the agave is hand placed into stainless steel ovens and slow-cooked at 230 degrees for 12 hours.
During a 72 hour fermentation process, the temperature and brix level (amount of sugar in the liquid) is closely monitored. Once the brix level reaches 0.5%, the juice is ready to be distilled.
While nearly every other tequila is distilled twice, 901 insist on triple distilling their tequila. Only after this does 901’s coal-activated filtration process begin. After filtration process is complete, 901 is taken to a staging tank where it awaits its final destiny: bottling.
901 is once again reviewed by our quality control team and also by the Tequila Regulatory Council. Upon passing these inspections (Tasting tequila? Not a bad job.) 901 is bottled in clear 750 ml glass bottle
